Free Crochet Blanket Pattern

This beautiful crochet blanket is super cuddly and so easy to make. If you’ve mastered basic crochet stitches and a granny square blanket, you’ll have no problem with our step-by-step guide to making this crochet throw that uses a pretty flower pattern.

For those of you who are still learning to crochet, this is a great beginner-friendly pattern for mastering double and half-treble crochet stitches.

Our free crochet pattern uses five colors to create a dynamic design that can be adapted to any color palette you choose.

Styling by Helen Johnson

We didn’t want to waste yarn, so our final throw size depended on how many patterns we could create with each ball.

Some balls had more length than others, so your final layout may need to be different from ours.

If you want a bigger throw, you can buy more than one ball of each color or more than 5 colors.

Our throw is just a suggestion, being made from identical unique designs – the finished throw can be whatever you want it to be!


This blanket pattern is also perfect for our Get Britain Knitting campaign. We have partnered knitting for peace to get everyone to crochet and knit blankets for families living in poverty. Find out more about our Get Britain Knitting campaign here.

    We have arranged our designs in 5 rows of 8 designs alternating with 4 rows of 7 designs, you may wish to make your throw more narrow and longer. The designs are hand joined by sewing through the 2ch-sps at the stitches of each design, arranging the colors randomly.
