Happiness + Harlequins = Happy Harlequin Blanket--Free Crochet Pattern

Happy Harlequin Blanket Free Crochet Pattern by Susan Carlson of Felted Button

It's happy! It's made with diamonds! And it's colorful! I looove this blanket for a myriad of reasons, and these are just a few.

Join-as-you-go motifs, lots of wonderful color, and a simple pattern makes this my favorite kind of blanket. If you've never done join-as-you-go, no fear as this pattern includes a bunch of photos with explanation to walk you through the process. If you have another favorite method of joining with this one, no worries, you can use it.

Another great thing about this blanket is that you can work the center of the diamonds on-the-go and join them later on the final round. I like portability, too.

But don't let me forget the totally terrific border. Again, super simple but it lays so nice and flat. I like that--no curly and wonky border.

Did I mention how much I love the colors of this yarn?! It is made from the same yarn as my Pansy Parade Blanket. Remember this one...

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention, the pattern includes a simple way to make it bigger without making and joining more motifs! Now that's nifty!

The pattern is now available in my shops--best part...I am sharing it with you for FREE!



You can find it on Ravelry here...
or Craftsy here...

I'm off to work on another colorful pattern. Happy Hooking to YOU!

  15. Hello there! Susan did you mention somewhere that you purchased the colors mentioned in the pattern for the Happy Harlequin blanket as a bundle somehow on Deramores? Thought I read that somewhere. Anyhow, I am able to find all the colors mentioned in the pattern except for 'Spring Green' for the Stylecraft Special DK yarn. Is there another green that you think would complement the other colors as beautiful as the Spring Green. God bless and keep up the good work!

    1. Jennifer,
      The Spring Green was part of the Stylecraft Special DK bundle pack that I got from Deramore's. It is one of my VERY favorite colors in the pack--the very pale green. If you didn't get the colour pack, and you can't find it individually, King Cole sells a very similar color and weight--also from Deramore's. Have fun playing with color!

      Delete
    2. By the way, the King Cole color is also called Spring Green!

  16. So, So beautiful!!!
