Home Decorating in Blue

According to Better Homes & Gardens, blue can be used in a wide variety of ways.

In a neutral living room, a blue throw or pillow can add subtle personality to a sofa. The brightness of the blue can draw the eye in that direction.

Quickly pull a room together using various hues of a color such as blue. Imagine this crochet throw over the red chair on the right. This would pull that right into the room.

Modernize Traditional Living Spaces

Blue is a classic color, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Bright splashes of color and patterns can help modernize traditional spaces.

Clean and Classy Style

Light blue, brown, and beige create a sophisticated palette.  Blue is a primary color; therefore, blue is an easy, no-fail decorating strategy to use. I think this blanket would be lovely thrown over the chair near the window.

Double Crochet V-Stitch Cluster

This pattern has alternating rows of double crochet; then the double crochet v-stitch cluster. Because I knew that I wanted to add a crochet border onto this blanket, I started off with the no chain double crochet as my foundation row rather than chains. If you are not familiar with this method of starting off your crochet, you can view the video on how this is done. This is a nice way to start a blanket if you have ever had the beginning chain stitch pull a bit looser than you would like when adding the crochet border.

Crochet Stitches for Afghan

This afghan begins with the no-chain double crochet. If this is a new crochet technique for you, no worries, there is a video link just below. Additional crochet stitches such as the double crochet, half double crochet, single crochet, and the double v-stitch cluster are used in this crochet blanket. However, do not let this scare you. There are a number of crochet stitch tutorial videos for you here. The videos showing me working this pattern and doing the first few rounds of the crochet border are after the written pattern below. The videos after the written pattern are for both left and right hand crocheters.

Crochet Border with Lots of Texture

The crochet border has lots of texture just like the blanket itself. This is done with the half double crochet and single crochet. Very easy to achieve. I just love how clean and pretty this is.

Pattern Notes

The pattern for the blanket is alternating rows of double crochet and the double crochet v-stitch cluster. Continuing onto the border, which starts with one round of single crochet. This provides a nice foundation to work the rest of the rounds of the crochet border. Rounds two through four uses the white yarn, round 5 uses the grey, and the blue yarn frames the entire afghan as the last round of crochet.

Blanket Size

The blanket is 60 inches long and 52 inches wide measured with the crochet border.

Crochet Gauge

Gauge is 13 stitches to every 4 inches. In order to make the blanket wider or narrower, the blanket it worked in multiples of 3 plus 5. This means my blanket that was started with 131 no-chain double crochet stitches is: 3 X 42 = 126 + 5 = 131.

Color Rows

The blanket color rows are repeated throughout.

  • 5 rows of Sky Blue
  • 2 rows of Grey Heather
  • 3 rows of White

Repeat these 10 color rows 8 times for a total of 80 rows.

Then end with an additional 5 rows of the Sky Blue. I feel like this helps make the blanket symmetrical.

Therefore, there are a total of 85 rows to this blanket before the crochet border is added.
