Crocheting With Color — Pretty Baby Blanket for Baby Girls Patchwork Sampler Afghan With Heart Designs and Checkerboard Designs

This pretty baby blanket resembles a patchwork quilt, but it is crocheted. This photograph is posted at the knitting with color web site -- the free crochet pattern is available online.

This patchwork baby blanket isn’t quilted; it’s crocheted! To make this blanket, you crochet a bunch of colorful afghan squares and then you assemble them in a patchwork pattern by sewing the crocheted squares together.

The pinks, purple, peach and other pastel colors featured in this afghan are ideal blanket colors for baby girls. Of course, if you need to make a blanket for a baby boy, all you have to do is use blues and other boy-friendly colors — yellows, greens, oranges etc.

I was so excited to be able to attend the Craft and Hobby Association (CHA) trade show in Anaheim, California. One of the yarn vendors I was most excited to see was Premiere Yarns. Premiere Yarns manufactures a range of exquisite yarns for knitting, crocheting and crafts. Their yarns are all lovely, but I particularly fell in love with their colorful new “Coral Batik” and “Coral Print” variegated yarns. I took these photos to share with you, but I really wish you could touch these yarns in person. They are delightfully soft. The colors are exquisite.
