How to: Crochet a Harlequin Blanket

July 19, 2016


I have been making this lovely blanket and putting together a pur-retty exhaustive tutorial to show YOU how to make one too.

It’s taken a VERY LONG time, but I think that it’s going to make it heaps easier for people to learn how to do this. This blanket is actually MUCH easier than it looks, but it helps a lot to have a pal show you what the what is. I am that pal. #fistbump



You can find the complete how-to here, in case you want to make one too!
Crochet your very own harlequin blanket a la Meet Me At Mike’s!

If you don’t want to make one, that’s okay. I will be back very soon with a recipe for Chocolate Chip Brioche instead!

Get the crochet bug with me!

    What yarn brands do you use? You always seem to have such fabulous colours…i have limited selection at my little local spotlight.

    That is so gorgeous, it’s not possible to have too many crochet blankets is it? I feel that I’m going to have to make one of these.
    Do you plan out your colour placement in advance Pip? I find that the hardest part of any blanket getting the colours to look good. Any advice, tips or tricks on how to do this would be gratefully appreciated.

      I try not to think TOO hard about the colour placement. I literally look at the row I just finished, look at my pile of colours and use the VERY FIRST one that catches my eye. I reckon when you think TOO hard, things don’t work, so my advice is to trust your creative eye and your initial colour response. x

        I think that is what I wanted you to say. I think I will gather all my odds and ends together and pull together a pleasing bunch and wing it from there.
