I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

Striped blankets are a classic, but see below that they can be modern and contemporary as well.

So, you think stripes, and you think classic, traditional, and frankly a bit timeworn, to list a few words. However, we’d like to show you that blankets with a striped main motif are every bit as fun and contemporary as any design. Here are some striped blankets for the fall that will get your creative muscles flexing. In spite of that, though, don’t be afraid of getting into these because they are easy and fun.  Thus you will never have a dull moment, but you’ll also never become frustrated.

Lucky Dip Blanket

The Lucky Dip blanket is a wonderful example of how you can use a gum ball variety of colors to make a colorful, wild striped blanket. Surely, It’s hard to imagine how such a blanket could be more vibrant and cheerful.

Rainbow Sampler Striped Blanket

The Rainbow Sampler is easy, and perfection is not its aim. You simply crochet together every distinct type of crochet stitch in a sequence of rows. To wit, it’s a good idea to experiment with the rows to see which sequence of textures and colors works best for you. The instructions are general on purpose, because it’s up to you to figure out “how she goes”. As you follow this striped blanket pattern, every once in a while you may need to adjust the stitching in order to match sizes and/or weave, but that is the fun of this project

    I have been unknowingly making this blanket for almost a year but I hadn’t decided on how to finish the edge. Thank you for inspiring me to add fringe! I love it.
