With this simple tutorial, you'll have this crochet blanket pattern mastered in no time. There's no better way to enjoy the sun going down than with a great free crochet pattern.


Crochet HookI/9 or 5.5 mm hook

Yarn Weight(4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches)


  • RED HEART® “Super Saver®”: 3 skeins 330 Linen A, 1 skein 320 Cornmeal B, 2 skeins 360 Café C, 1 skein 332 Ranch Red D, 1 skein 656 Real Teal E
  • Hook: 5.5mm [US I-9]
  • Yarn needle

Size: 42” x 60”

Gauge: 13 sc and 15 sc rows = 4”. 13 dc and 4.5 dc rows = 4”. CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.

How to Make a Gauge Swatch:
With any color, ch 14.

Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each rem chacross—13 sc.

Rows 2-15: Ch 1, turn; sc in each sc across. Swatch should measure approx 4” square. Adjust hook size if necessary to obtain correct gauge.

1. When working with multiple color sections across arow, do not carry colors under sts. Instead, make bobbins (small, separate balls of yarn) for each color section, and join them as needed.

2. To change colors, work last st of old color until 2 loops remaining on hook, yo with new color and draw through both loops on hook. Drop old color to wrong side of work to be picked up again on next row.

3. Fasten off any colors not being used on next row.

With A, ch 138.

Row 1 (wrong side): Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each remaining ch across, turn—137 sc (Row 1 of chart complete).

Rows 2-64: Work in sc and dc following chart. Work all even-numbered rows from A to B, then work from C to B once, then work from C to D, turn. Work all odd-numbered rows from D to C, then work from B to C, then work from B to A, turn.

Rows 65-172: Repeat Rows 11-64 twice.

Rows 173-182: Repeat Rows 11-20.

Row 183: With A, ch 1, turn; sc in each st across.

Rows 184-192: Repeat Rows 2-10.

At end of Row 192, fasten off.

Weave in all ends.

I have read these instructions numerous times and still remain lost. Here are the instructions that are confusing me. Work all even-numbered rows from A to B, then work from C to B once, then work from C to D, turn. Work all odd-numbered rows from D to C, then work from B to C, then work from B to A, turn. It looks like each row is really three rows of stitches and not only that, each of the three rows are different lengths. ???? What the heck am I missing? Can someone please explain these instructions to me. I would love to make this pattern but HOW?

Oh, I love the look of this Arizona Sunset Crochet Blanket Pattern. The pattern is well written and looks easy enough to make as long as you know how to read a chart. The colors look great together and if I can't find the exact colors, I'll substitute as close as I can. Thankfully my printer lets me enlarge things so the chart can be easier to read. Thank you for this beautiful free pattern.

for your sunset throw.I cannot find Linen there a color I can substitute.I live on Vancouver Island ,and I am a just now starting to learn crocheting.

Is there any way to get a large copy of the chart? it's so small I can't see the row numbers! Thanks!!
