The crochet patchwork blanket has been designed to help you learn new stitches whilst creating a project to show off your new skills. Made up of 30 different stitches ranging from beginner to advanced with assisting tutorials. The ebook gives you all the details to make your samples a consistent size that can then be joined to make a blanket. This project also makes a great yarn stash buster giving you the versatility to play around with the colours and layout. To get your pattern click here.

Patchwork Blanket

Inspiration

When we moved into the studios at the start of 2022 we had the mammoth task of sorting out all of my crochet samples from over the years. Although it was a huge task we soon realised that we couldn’t do anything with any of the samples because they were all different shapes and sizes.  

The team started a stitch inventory and we decided to have one of each sample made in the same dimensions, initially this was for aesthetic purposes so we could use them on social media and the website. However as they started to build up in the ‘thinking room’ I had the idea of joining a selection to make a patchwork blanket.

Materials Needed

Yarn Details

When it comes to picking colours for my projects I’m often drawn to pastels, I have deviated over the years and experimented with a range of colours but I’m always pulled back towards pastels which has now become a signature colour pallet for Bella Coco! The team and I were looking back at how Bella Coco started to where it is now, going through the mound of pastel yarn, projects and swatches from over the years we reminisced and wanted to have the archive of stitches and samples in what I refer to as true Bella Coco colours. I love that this blanket is completely customisable so get creative with your colour pallets!

I’ll leave alternative yarn below.

I have used Paintbox Cotton DK (8-ply/light worsted) in colours Blush Pink, Sea Foam, Pistachio Green, Vanilla Cream & Stormy Grey.

Alternative Yarn Suggestions

If you’d like to use an alternative yarn in the same/similar colours I suggest using Paint Box Simply DK the are very similar however they are a slightly different shade.

Another alternative is Style Craft Special DK in similar colours.

    Hi, I have lots of stylecraft special DK yarn but not enough of the same colour. Do you think it would look ok with more colours? I was thinking if they all went well together then it would work and placement could be worked out after they were all completed.

    Hi there,
    I purchased the early bird patchwork blanket pattern and saved it to kindle. I can’t get the links to the tutorials to work. When I click on them nothing happens.
    Please can you tell me where to find the tutorials?
    Thank you

      Hi Tina The tutorials take you to the youtube tutorials so I am presuming that this will not work on your Kindle. Please also be aware that the they are only assisted tutorials 🙂
