Crochet a King Size Modern Patchwork Throw blanket. Free crochet pattern and video tutorial.
Lets talk about my inspiration for this design! I was working on my Rosy Posy dishcloth pattern and envisioned how gorgeous they would look seamed together in a large modern patchwork throw blanket. As a result a quickly began working up these gorgeous squares in fun bright colours.
The overall look I was going for was a cozy patchwork quilt. A modern take on a classic style. I attempted a quilt once and never finished it. So I’m super happy I finally have one. It’s just crocheted instead of sewn with material.
It’s so easy to customize the size of your modern patchwork throw. I wanted mine as a BIG throw and wide enough to cover the bottom of my king size bed. I went with 8 x 6 squares. Each Square with white border is 10.5″. The final border is 1″ in width. So my blanket is 86″ x 65″. If you want your blanket as a comforter I made this handy chart for common comforter sizes. I then suggest how many squares you should make.
*One ball of Brava Worsted will make 2 squares
The yarn I choose for the Modern Patchwork Throw is Brava Worsted from WeCrochet. I decided on this yarn for a few reasons.
#1 Amazing colour range
#2 Price (2.49/Ball in US$) Buy it HERE
#3 Durability and softness
I’m really happy with the softness and I find this yarn a dream to work with. The only negative is some of the colours vary in thickness. You may have to adjust hook size to get all your squares to match. Blocking will also help.
In order to get that perfect square I decided to go with corner-to-corner (C2C). It’s an easy pattern and works up quick. I then did a simple crochet border in white.
The join method I used is so easy and quick I know you’re going to love it! After all the hard work making these squares you’ll be ready for a quick seaming method.
