Modern Houndstooth Patchwork Blanket

Modern Houndstooth Patchwork Blanket

Statement pieces don't necessarily need to be large in size to have a big impact. The Modern Houndstooth Patchwork Blanket is the perfect example. Between the checkerboard looking combination of solid black and white and houndstooth squares, to the splash of color along the border, this one-of-a-kind crochet blanket pattern is definitely a statement piece. Stick with the bright pink or choose another color that better matches your home decor to pop from the black and white. It's a fantastic pattern full of modern flair.
