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.

It’s not all colors with crocheting.

Indeed, textures are just as important. Thus, here are some texture-forward patterns with diagonal stripes blanket ideas to help enhance your tactile experience. All of these patterns feature a lovely, attractive design with a diagonal, sensual and very visible texture. Moreover, they are also quite easy, so you can really practice making different surfaces. Consequently, you can experiment with various stitches, yarn weights as well as colors to produce pieces that are a joy to the eyes and the hands. Of course, the latter is so important in baby blankets where touch is a young one’s first exploratory sense.
