This crochet blanket has lovely texture that is easy to achieve. In a neutral living room, a blue throw or pillow can add subtle personality to a sofa. The brightness of the blue can draw the eye in that direction. This pattern has alternating rows of double crochet; then the double crochet v-stitch cluster.
