Color Combinations

Before diving into the free crochet patterns I wanted to give you a few tips for picking your 2 colors of yarn for these blankets.

When working with just 2 colors, my preference always goes to one neutral combined with a color. You’ll see in the blanket patterns below, most of them follow this guideline. Maybe it’s just my personal preference but I find that when you work with just 2 colors this gives you the best aesthetics.

Depending on the design and the stitches used, you can either go with 2 high contrast colors or on the contrary have them be closer for a less contrasting look.

You’d be surprised how much you color choices will affect the overall look of your project. When possible, go to check out the Ravelry projects of the pattern you consider making to give you an idea of how it will look with the type of colors you’re planning to use if they are very different from the pattern pictures.

2 Color Crochet Stitches

Simple crochet stitches can take a whole new dimension when using 2 contrasting colors! Some of the following blankets use only simple stitches but the addition of a second color gives a striking look, with minimal effort. Others use well-loved crochet stitches that provide texture to the blanket. The 2 contrasting colors effect gives even more depth to the texture!

Read through the following list to find your favorite crochet blanket pattern!

Modern Moss Stitch Blanket by Daisy Farm Crafts

Using the moss stitch means the stitches aren’t too hole-y, but they still keep the yarn loose and give the blanket a really nice drape. 

You can make this blanket any size you want – all you need to do is make a base chain with an even number that is 2 inches longer than the desired width of your blanket (since the moss stitch requires you to skip a stitch, your base chain will shrink by about 2 inches after you work the first row).
