Modern Patchwork Crochet Throw

Updated April 12, 2018
Modern Patchwork Crochet Throw

Modern Baby yarn is used to work up this bright and colorful Modern Patchwork Crochet Throw. Because of the primary colors that are used, it's a fantastic gender-neutral baby blanket. It is made up of five columns of patches, and each patch is worked back and forth in rows. As you work, you'll join the patches together. Work up this multi-colored crochet baby blanket for an upcoming baby shower, or treat yourself to this homemade baby blanket. It's a classic crocheted afghan that will look amazing in any nursery, regardless of the color scheme.

Loved pattern and colors. Tried to make it. Ripped it out and redid and redid. Either doing something really wrong or just hard to follow. Gave it to the dog for a blanket. Made different pattern for the baby.

Hi! I'm sorry you were having trouble - what part was giving you trouble? This is Lion Brand's pattern and I'm sure if you reached out to their pattern design team or customer service they could offer some advice! Julia, editor

Although it is very pretty, the colors won't work in the room this is going to. The mommy to be has stated she wants soft pastels but I do love the pattern so I can improvise with the best of them. Greens, pinks, yellows, blues and violet colors will still look gorgeous in this pattern.

That is an adorable blanket and one of the cutest photos I have seen on this site! Grandchild 6 is due in July, so I'd better get stitching!

So lovely. very colorful. I will definitely make this. Thanks for the pattern which is just right on the front page. Here's the link to the aiagram http//www.allfreecrochetafghanpatterns.com/masteri == mages/files/assembly-diagram-patchwork-throw.JPG
