Everyone knows that color is a huge part of decorating, but did you know that when it comes to crochet blankets, the pattern can have just as much of an impact. Think of all the blue blankets you've seen. They probably each set a different tone, despite being similar colors. This Patched Persuasion Throw is an example of just how important a pattern is in creating an aesthetic. This isn't just any bright, colorful crochet blanket. This rainbow pattern is a great way to add a bohemian touch to soften any room.

Notes
1. Throw is made from 89 Squares: 75 Square I, 7 Square II, 5 Square III, and 2 Square IV.
2. Squares are whipstitched together following Assembly Diagrams. A border is worked around entire outer edge of Throw.
3. Squares I, II, and III are worked in joined rounds with right side always facing. Square IV is worked back and forth in rows.
4. Yarn color is changed when working Squares II, III, and IV. To change yarn color when working Squares II and III, fasten off old color and join next color as instructed. To change yarn color when working Square IV, work last stitch of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete stitch. Proceed with new color. Fasten off old color.
5. It is very important that all Squares measure the size indicated in the GAUGE section. Change hook size as needed to achieve the needed measurements.

I love the seventies look of this granny square afghan. The colors are on fleck and the asymmetrical size of the squares and the way they are sewn together gives it a sort of art deco look too. This coloring should allow it to blend in with any room of your house. I love boho items and this would definitely make it to my collection

What a great stash buster! And so colorful! You would not get bored making this afghan. It also will go with everything in your house. All the different colors seem to come together. It is a detailed pattern over all but once you go over it a few times it all comes together. Just take your time. Thank you.
