Easy Colorwork for Beginners

New to colorwork? My step-by-step instructions and crochet chart will guide you through the process and make it super easy. You’ll end up with an adorable baby heart blanket or small throw that’s completely reversible. Add the optional corner tassels for a fun twist.

This free crochet blanket pattern features written instructions, photos, and a full chart of the colorwork portion.

Before you Start

Materials

  • 6 mm / US J – 10 hook
  • Worsted weight wool yarn: Royal Zeeman yarn (100% acrylic, 100g, 241m / 264yd)
    • 7 skeins in burgundy (MC)
    • 2 skeins in grey (CC)
  • Tapestry needle to weave in the ends – I love this set as it has different eye sizes for different yarn thicknesses and it comes in a small tube which is very convenient so I don’t lose them.

Because the yarn I used is not available everywhere, and I know how painful it is to try to find equivalent yarn which will give you the same effect I have selected a few equivalent yarns for you. 

Size

The blanket is 100 cm by 120 cm / 39.25” by 47.25”.

Gauge

The gauge for this pattern, in rows of sc with 6mm / US J – 10 hook is 14 st by 18.5 rows for a 10 cm by 10 cm square (4” by 4”). 

Baby crochet blanket pattern

Abbreviations

This pattern uses US notations.

  • st = stitch
  • ch = chain
  • sc = single crochet

Notes

Work instructions between [ ] the indicated number of times or until the end of the row / round.

The final number of stitches is indicated at the end of the row / round between < >.

The turning ch 1 doesn’t count as stitches throughout the pattern except if mentioned otherwise.

The pattern is written in crochet shorthand.  For example:

  • “sc 1” means to single crochet in the next stitch, 
  • “sc 2” means to single crochet in each of the next 2 stitches,
  • and “2 sc” means to single crochet twice in the next st.

Use the color changing method you prefer. 

Tips and Tricks

  • If color changing is new to you: when working the last part of the indicated stitch, insert hook, draw up a loop, (do not yarn over with the same color to finish the stitch), finish the stitch with the new color according to the pattern. There are many videos on Youtube to show you in more details.
  • When working the 2 lobes of the heart I worked with 5 skeins or bobbins (3 MC and 2 CC) to avoid carrying the yarn between the lobes.

Blocking and Finishing Touches

You’re done with the crocheting part. Make sure to weave in all the ends.

To make your square even neater, carefully block it. Don’t skip this step as it can make a huge difference. Read my detailed tutorial on why to block, how-to, and all my tips and tricks if you need help.

In CC make 4 tassels (mine are 10 cm / 4” long). Attach one in each corner.
