What Colours Are Best For A Crochet Blanket?

We don’t have a definite answer to this. As a rule, the patchwork technique involves combining squares in different colors. The bolder the color combination, the better.

Patchwork projects make it all about being creative. So, there are no colour-mixing limits. What’s more, for patchwork blankets, crocheters often use all the scraps of yarn they have. In such cases, it’s hard to have full control over the shades you can use.

If you are not a big fan of bold colors, you can always make a blanket in a more subtle combination.

Is it easy to make a patchwork blanket?

Again, there is no single answer to this question. It all depends on the particular project. The patterns that you have here include both beginner-friendly blankets and those that are more challenging to make.

See if you know the stitches required to make the blanket you like. If you do, be sure to give it a try!


In conclusion, a crochet patchwork blanket can be a great idea to add some fun to your project queue. No matter, if you choose squares, hexagons, or triangles – working with individual elements is easier than handling a big blanket at once.

What’s more, this kind of blanket is very easy to adjust in size. All you have to do is add or subtract the amount of elements in it.
