Crochet Blanket Colour Inspiration
My mudroom is my favourite place to be. I spend my mornings snuggled up in my chair drinking my coffee. It’s the perfect spot to read, catch up on social and of course crochet.
If you hadn’t already guessed, my favourite colour is blue. It’s the calming tranquil effect I get just from looking at it. A new blanket was needed for my mudroom so blues were definitely my top choice. I was lucky to discover that Brava Bulky from WeCrochet had the perfect colours I was looking for. But if you need a little help on how to pick your colours, here’s my designer tip! Search for colour palette inspiration on Pinterest. This blanket is basically a colour chip!
I wanted a simple textured crochet stitch that would be easy to work up and compliment the striped pattern. So after swatching several stitch options I settled on a single crochet cluster stitch. I then modified it to work up faster and use a little less yarn. Because we all want to spend a little less right?
Added Crochet Pattern Value
The calming stripes crochet blanket includes a video tutorial you can watch on YouTube. This will ensure you get the stitch pattern down without any problems. The blanket is worked in a 9mm crochet hook so it will work up quick. So settle in with a coffee and some Netflix and let’s get started on how to crochet a blanket!
