When it comes to easy crochet blanket patterns for fall and winter, nothing screams cozy quite like the Stellar Patchwork Crochet Blanket. While this crochet afghan might look like its granny squares joined together, it's actually crocheted as one solid piece. You'll use color-blocking to create the patchwork look instead. In the end you'll end up with a funky crochet afghan that will add a splash of color and texture to any room in your home.

Do you cut the ends when you change colors? I am confused how you drop color A and start with color B but then pick up color A again without it pulling from the previous? I feel like I should cut them and tie every time I change colors....

Wow, I thought this afghan used granny squares to finish the whole piece but the pattern says it was actually done in one piece and it says easy. Good thing pattern has been published right on the same page, we don't have to link to another site. This is so gorgeous, I've pinned it.

I'm not sure how to ask this question. It might be confusing. I have rows 2 and 3 of the color blocks done. (Colors A and B) Now I need to switch colors. (To colors B and C) Should I have finished off the last row so that I can switch "color B" to the first block of color I am starting? I'm not sure how to continue

Did you make a tutorial video of this? If not, can you?

I love the look of this pattern! This is my first attempt at a blanket so I'm very excited to get going on it. However I'm stumped on the colour switching, do I cut the wool every time I change and then just tuck the ends in later? Otherwise there's just loops of extra wool all over. I'm sure I'm just overthinking it. Thanks!

Would you be able to tell me how many chains I would need to make this a king sized blanket? I really like this pattern and I'm still kind of a novice even though I've known how to crochet for years.

so in otherwords i will be working with two balls of yarn of the same color by dropping one picking up B then starting with a new ball for A again etc. I am going to see if this is correct now and will get back to you. thanks for your patience with me i really appreciate it. For now Gloria

I have been crocheting for years and I am have a real awful time trying to figure out the above Stellar Patchwork Crochet Blanket. I know nothing about color blocking and the first row of this project has me stumped. I did go out and buy all the chunky yarn but I really need a tutorial on this or some kind of information about all the chains with the 3 different colors. Please can you help me. I love the blanket.

as i understand it you are to chain 16 with your first color, then 17using second color 17 A, 17 B and it ends with 17 of A. then you chain 2 with A and the first row is done. it becomes one chain of 120 . each different color has the yarn for it still attached and ready to picked up when you have turned the work. you will work A until the color change and you pick up the new color doing one single crochet and a ch 1 across for 16 stitches. once you work it it will make sense. it is a great way to change color without having to carry the yarn. i hope this is a little bit helpful!

oops i forgot a sentence - color B is joined to A as you go so it is one long chain. i worked over the ends as i crocheted leaving the balls of yarn behind my work as i finish each section.

When you put it that way I think I have it so I am going to try it again and will let you know. Thank you so much.

As crochetingprayermama said, it is quite easy once you get the hang of it, but if you want to make a bit easier as a new crocheter, you might make the chain with just one of your colors and single crochet one entire row with one color. Then begin your color changes in the next row. (It can be hard to change color in chains as the yarns can unravel easily.) Then when the blanket is done, you can do a single crochet with that color around the three sides so it looks like a thin border. I'm not good at following charts, but this pattern needs a chart so you can see at-a-glance what colors are where.

What a clever idea.I love the idea of the border. and it would simplify making the color changes.
