Comfy Heritage Quilt Crochet Blanket
Embrace all the comforts of your home with the Comfy Heritage Quilt Crochet Blanket.

This pattern from the designers at Lion Brand is easy and it will show you how to crochet a quilt. A crochet blanket like this one will last generations in your family because of its durability and softness. You'll never want to give it up, trust us.
1. Afghan is made from 7 Strips. Each Strip is worked by following a Stripe Sequence.
2. A border is worked around the outside edge of the completed Afghan.
3. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete st. Fasten off old color.

Those colors work together nicely and they would work with the dcor I have in our family room also. This is the perfect size for using as a throw on the sofa while watching TV. The time of the year is almost here to turn the ac down low to make it chilly here in FL so we can experience some cooler temps too.

This looks like such a beautiful afghan pattern! I love patterns like this that are unique in how they are formed. This particular pattern uses 7 stripes, which makes it look like it was not really a pattern. This type of pattern makes me happy, because it is so different than traditional patterns that are very structured.

Problem understanding pattern. What color yarn to use in letter sequence A-G. I tried to go by the picture but ended up with too much Fisherman and not enough cranberry. Also, there seems to be only stripe sequences for 6 strips unless you do #1 twice which I have done. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I havent finished it so with some suggestions my rating may be higher.

Found strip 7. It and the finishing directions were hidden behind an ad when I printed the pattern. I still need to better understand the color sequence.

I love the look of this pattern and it is fairly simple. The good thing about doing it in strips is it is a good portable project. I travel a lot of subways and buses and I can bring this along. It is also a good stash buster. I love to make afghans because I am cold a lot and then I have a choice to keep me warm. Jus changing afghans around adds a different touch to the home as well. Thank you for the pattern.

I love crochet projects that mimic quilting patterns. Ive done my fair share of quilting in my younger days, and I can attest that the crochet versions are much, much faster and easier to work up! And depending on what kind of batting your quilt calls for, the crocheted version is probably as warm if not warmer. Its also small enough to keep on the back of the couch and grab if youre feeling chilly.

I have not made this blanket to-date, but what caught my eye were the colors, red, white, and blue, my twin sister is Very patriotic and I plan on crocheting this pattern for her New home, she will be thrilled. I love the reverse single Crochet stitch for the border. Thank you Jo Ann B.

This blanket is worked in 7 strips which means it is so much easier to join up at the end that lots and lots of squares. The color combination is lovely and as it uses a 9mm or 10mm crochet hook it is going to work up in hardly any time at all which is always good news.

You'll never know that this Comfy Heritage Quilt Crochet Blanket is made from scrap yarn. The blanket has been beautifully crafted in a quilt design using a combination of warm fall colors. It also helps that the pattern has been given to us for free and it has been presented in a clear, well written set of instructions which strongly encourages crocheters to start this project right away. Thanks for this free pattern.
