Free Crochet Fall Blanket – Autumn Breeze Blanket

You know when you’re on a walk in the fall, and you have your cozy sweater and boots on, the sun is shining, but there is a chill in the air? 

The wind picks up, and leaves scatter across the walkway.

You hear the crunch of acorns and leaves. Pumpkins line the porches, and you breath in the cold, crisp air.

That’s my happy place, and that’s what inspired the Autumn Breeze Blanket.

DESCRIPTION

The Autumn Breeze Blanket uses intarsia crochet techniques, so there are individual bobbins of color for each section. You do not cut the colors between rows, but instead pick the color back up when you get to that color portion in the designs.

Half double crochet is used throughout the main portion of the blanket allowing for warmth yet in ease in the making.

THE YARN

For this pillow, I used #4 worsted weight yarn. I chose Lion Brand Wool Ease in the colors “Natural Heather“, “Arrowwood“, “Umber“, “Cranberry“, and “Black“.

Wool Ease is a classic yarn perfect for chilly autumn days. 

It is made up of 80% acrylic and 20% wool. The wool adds the extra warmth while staying lightweight and not too heavy of a blanket.

If you don’t believe me that the blanket doesn’t weigh too much, check out my video here showing how I hiked it up a mountain to take pictures.

DIFFICULTY

This pillow is considered an intermediate pattern because of the multiple colors.

I did intarsia crochet for the whole blanket. I had bobbins of natural heather on either side of the leaves, pumpkins, acorns, and circles. I did not carry yarn through the images.

I purposely designed the blanket so that the majority of rows do not have more than 4 or 5 bobbins per row. 

The images are smaller, so you do not have to juggle the bobbins for several and several rows. You can cut the yarn once you’ve completed the image.
