Color block HDC child blanket * Free Pattern

Click here to download the PDF pattern for the color block blanket.

This is more a recipe for a color block child-size throw, than a pattern: you can adapt it to any size, any color, any yarn you want. I give you all the information needed to do the same than shown on pictures, not including the yarn references because mine came from a french brand and are now discontinued.

Pattern history: My daughter fell in love with a purple yarn and asked me to crochet a blanket. However, a full purple blanket would have been too expensive. So, I designed a way to showcase this yarn by including it in this black and white color block design.

In the end, I think it’s even better this way: this pattern is a good, stylish, modern way to emphasize a particular yarn!

After a few months living with this blanket, my love for her hasn’t changed a bit 😊 And same for my daughter. Since this blanket seems to make people happy, I decided to share the recipe with you.


Width = 96 cm / 38 inches ; Height = 149 cm  / 58 inches.

You’ll need:

  • 8 mm – L hook
  • Any bulky yarn in 3 colors: black, white (or off-white / beige), and a contrasting color, or any color combination you like. Please be creative and share your pictures, I’d be delighted 😊 I recommend a cotton / wool blend (about half / half). Don’t hesitate to crochet a thinner yarn with 2 strands. FYI the blanket shown on picture weights 1,3 kg (2,15 lbs). There are 6 stripes, 3 of them are white, 2 are black, 1 is CC (Contrasting Color).
  • Scissors
  • Measuring tape
  • Yarn needle
  • A stitch marker can help to mark a row’s first stitch.



10 cm = 9 stitches / 7 rows of HDC
