Crochet Blended Love Blanket

This Blended Love Blanket is crocheted by using 2 shades of your favorite color, to “blend” them together using some interesting textured stitches.

I chose Red Heart Ombré in Deep Teal and Anemone to create this generous afghan that is big enough for 2 to snuggle under together.  Think about upcoming weddings.  Perfect to pick the happy couple’s favorite colors to crochet this gift blanket.

This finished project is 52″ x 74″, but you can resize using the multiples of 16 + 18.

You can use any solids or self-striping yarn too to give it your own look to match any decor.

    Hi, I’m really having a hard time with row 34. Is it supposed to line up with the previous rows? It looks a little wacky. I’m a beginner and would like some help.

    • I believe I received an email on this same question. I have already responded to that about an hour or so ago.

  2. Debra Timmer

    Row 34. Should there be a sk dc before all the (sc,dc,sc,dc) in next stitch. The peaks and low parts arent lining up without one.

    • Jeanne

      I don’t believe so. If I remember right, the first row after the change looks a bit wonky, but by the second row, it straightens out.

  3. Lynn Stilborn

    What size are the skeins listed in the pattern? My local yarn retailer only has 10oz balls of the ombre. Thanks🙂

  4. Jen Cohen

    I don’t have access to the smaller 4.5mm hook. Would I be better off going smaller with the 4 or up to the 5? I understand gauge maybe affected, I’m just hoping to have the bobbles blend correctly with the rest of pattern.

    • I’ll check with Jeanne. I don’t know off the top of my head. I don’t know what the tension is between the two stitches.

    • Jeanne

      It’s been quite a while since I made this one. Are you loose or tight? Try the 4 and keep it loose or 5 and keep it tight. Or maybe switch altogether to the 4 and 5. Experiment a bit and see how it goes.

  5. Lois OBrien

    I want to make the blended love blanket. I’m a seasoned crocheter. I’m stuck on row 2!!! Can you explain it in simple language.? I’m probably over thinking this. Thanks so much. Hopefully I will have an ah ha moment.

    • Jeanne

      Hi Lois. What part are you struggling with? You are creating a chevron. Can you please be more specific? Don’t overthink it. Trust what you are reading and just take it one stitch at a time. ~ Jeanne

      • Lois OBrien

        On row 2, at the first * I skip a SC, then I SC, DC in the SC. Now, do I go on to skip sc, SC, dc, SC ,DC in the next sc. Now do I go back to the first * ?? The first * will be done 6 times, and the ** will be done 11 times. I’ve made 3 hugs and kisses blankets and can’t get this one. Hope I explained this right.

  6. Colleen

    I love this blanket, worked my way through rows 1 and 2 but am having trouble with row 3. I’m not really sure what stitches are being repeated 11 times! Would greatly appreciate your help!

    My email address is. [email protected]. Again ty. My son just married a woman and she had two girls and I am trying to do something nice as a new grandmother with no granddaughter in the family

  10. carole

    I could easily catch on better with a tutorial, sure hope they make one soon:)

  11. carole

    I am really confused about row 3, somehow it just doesn’t make sense to me. Could you explain more clearly, it’s probably just me, I learn by watching, too bad there isn’t a tutorial. If you could help I would sure appreciate it

  12. Rebecca

    Hi, I’m really wanting to make this blanket, but have difficultiy reading patterns. I’m curious when you say drop color and pick up the next color, are we to leave it there or take the drop color to the other end of the row to be able to pick it back up? This is at the end of row 15, to drop & pick up then on row 16 to drop color & pick up again. Im not positive how we are to do that and have been looking for tutorials on doing this but can’t find any. Please help. Thanks.

    Ps. would really love a tutorial on this blanket too.

  13. Linda

    Thankyou for the answer to my question on colors.

  14. Diane

    Thanks Jeanne, sure did help!

  15. Diane

    Thanks Jeanne, it sure did help!

  16. Diane

    Row 34? There are no sc in row 33! Help

    • Yes, you are correct. Where ever it says to work into a sc, should just be st. I’m so sorry. It was tested by 2, but sometimes those small things are hard to catch.

  17. Diane

    Row 34? There are NO single crochet from the previous row. Please help! Thank you!

  18. Patty

    I’m having difficulties. I’m usually not super challenged but for some reason am having trouble at row 20. A video would be awesome, but maybe a diagram would solve my problem. Please consider…. Thank you! It’s beautiful!

    • Kit

      I can’t get row 20 to work out right either!! I’m not a novice, and I’d swear I’m doing everything right on the row below and row 20, but it’s not lining up!!!

      • Devin Folks

        I will have Jeanne revisit this again. 🙂 Thanks for your patience.

  19. Linda Marienski Huck

    Do you have a tutorial on the Blended Love Blanket ? I would LOVE to make this blanket. I especially like your color combinations. I am terrible at choosing color combinations and yours are gorgeous! ? I am having trouble following written patterns, but can follow tutorial. Thankyou.

      • Diane

        Do you use a H and I hook for this? What letter is size 7?

      • Diane

        Row 34, there are no sc from row 33. Help

      • Lorie M

        Hi Mikey or Jeanne

        Can you please do a tutorial on the Blended Love Blanket?? I have a hard time understanding this written pattern. I would like to see how you’re doing it. It will be more helpful for me and everyone. It’s a very beautiful blanket.

        Thank you!

        I’m looking at your photographs of the blanket. Were two blankets made or just one and they look different under lighting? I have to order this yarn online and I want to make sure I am ordering the right set of colors. From what I can tell one blanket is more blue and purple and the other more teal and corals. Can you clarify?

      • It’s only one blanket. It’s the lighting. I’m just a hobbyist photographer. I get a bit frustrated sometimes trying to capture the true colors of the yarn. I’d say more teals and darker pinks, not corals.

      • Jessica Lopez

        How many skeins of each color?

      • Leonnie Needer

        Pooh bumz hoping there might be a chance for a tutorial to be made for this pattern…one day

      • Teresa

        Will you be making one in the future?
