The Arrow Crochet Blanket is great for the crocheter wanting to try colorwork. With its easy stitch repeat and fun design, any crochet level will enjoy this project. This crochet blanket is also easy to adjust to any size. The border is crocheted in a nice modern style with a clean look.
For this crochet blanket, I use WeCrochet Brava Worsted Yarn. This is one of my favorite acrylic yarns that comes in a variety of colors. I can just imagine some of the great combinations, so many to choose from! And it’s excellent for customizing your home decor, or for a baby room theme. This one is sure to win at any baby shower.

The Arrow Crochet Blanket is created by using the tapestry crochet technique in rows.
This technique works with multiple colors in one row or round, but there is less of a need to weave in ends. The yarn colors not in use are worked over by the current color and they will sit within the stitches being worked.

Arrow Crochet Blanket Notes:
This pattern is worked in half double crochet stitches in rows. It can easily be sized by chaining additional width in multiples of 32 and crocheting more rows. Feel free to use the colors in your stash or match your own home decor theme. There is a chart at the end of the pattern to help visually with the color changes. It can also be used to help you plot your own color choices.
The beginning stitch is worked as a stacked single crochet instead of chaining. This counts as a stitch.
