Modified Virus Crochet Blanket Pattern

Unlike the original virus crochet blanket, this free crochet blanket pattern uses several different techniques to achieve a multi-colored blanket. Based off of the always-trending virus blanket technique, this pattern uses a multi-colored yarn to achieve the rainbow of color without having to switch from piece to piece too often. This stunning blanket pattern would be a lovely conversation piece for your living room or could even be worked up as a baby blanket. The delightful thing about virus blankets (and variations) is that you are able to stop when you decide your project is completed! If you're looking for something huge, just keep crocheting. This would also be a great way to use up odds and ends of yarn since you can just keep working them in as needed.

I really love the color of this modified virus crochet blanket. Would love to know the yarn and color used to create this item. It is like a burst of sunshine. If anyone can provide that information, that would be greatly appreciated.

By definition of the virus pattern or not, this is beautiful. Home made items are always truly unique and often times it is just the one that made the craft that will know the little errors in the design. I would not have know this was a "modified" version if I had not read the directions. Thanks you for all your little "improvements" to the pattern.

This little project is ideal if you want to explore working Virus crochet but dont have the time or inclination for an entire blanket or shawl. There are enough rows to work that you get a real taste of what the texture pattern should look like, and if you do want to keep going, youre all set. Whenever I encounter a new stitch pattern, I like to work up a swatch anyway, so this is perfect for me.

Wow I love it when a accidental pattern works out so beautifully! The bold colors in this one are a wow factor, I would not of though of putting these colors together, but they work great together. This pattern is well written and easy to follow and understand with only 4 rounds to repeat until the size you wish. Looking forward to making this one and it's on my must make list. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet afghan pattern.
