Crochet Patchwork Squares

I have been so desperate to make a crochet blanket made up of different blocks of colour, but a design that does not involve individual squares or Granny Squares. I am so happy that I have finally worked this out, and have come up with this crochet patchwork squares design. Here is a little taster of what I have achieved so far. Remember you can get latest updates on my Facebook page and my Instagram.

This modern take on the crochet Granny Square Blanket was a delight to design and make. This is a blanket based on rectangles, but a modern updated rectangle design with each rectangle using a single colour, creating a contemporary feel. You can find the full free pattern for the blanket here.

How to add tassels to your crochet blanket

This page outlines how to add tassels to your crochet blanket. Adding tassels to your knitted or crochet blankets can really finish it off nicely. I have done this on several of my blankets and throws. This is a quick and simple tutorial guiding you through the steps to make these.

Strawberry Candy Squares

I love this blanket and it definitely one for me to keep. I love the wonderful bright and cheerful colours. Best of all, it matches my new sofa perfectly. The blanket is based on the traditional Granny Square, which is a firm favourite of mine. A total of 81 squares are joined using the wonderful red joining colour. You can easily make the blanket bigger or smaller by adjusting the number of squares you make. I added some tassels in each corner to give it boho vibe, but this is optional.

Cool Chunky Stripes

Oh dear, I have had a lot of IT issues recently (laptop died) and so have not been able to show you progress on a number of my recent projects. This Cool Chunky Stripes Blanket was lovely and easy to make and uses the herringbone half treble (uk) stitch – I used this for my Aqua Chunky Cushion too and love the stitch definition.
