Patchwork crochet patterns on Bluprint – taking crochet to a new level

You might think that patchwork crochet just means putting together some lovely, plain colored crochet squares into a blanket or throw. It certainly can be that — and that’s a great stash-busting project. But the inventive and inspirational designers here on Bluprint have taken the concept to another level. Read on for a selection of wonderful creative patterns available for just a few dollars.

1. Rosa Fresca Blanket

This vintage-inspired, shabby-chic throw uses a patchwork of two-round granny squares as its centerpiece. The deep, mainly white border and lacy edge provides an elegant finish, and the rose squares placed around the patchwork pick out the colors perfectly.

2. Patchwork Bag

Crochet bags are such a statement piece, and once you start making them, they become very addictive! The two patchwork-style bags pictured above come from the same designer Nancy Brown and show how the technique of using squares can produce very different styles.

On the left is a rich, fall-inspired bag with robust but lacy motifs that are joined to produce a fun and useful tote bag. A total of 25 motifs are used, and you can follow Nancy’s colorway or devise your own.

3. Patchwork Squares Bag

The second bag, on the right, is made from 17 squares made in a solid style. The whole project uses the same yarn, which has subtle color and design variations. Joined together with crochet, the bag is finished off with crochet handles that you can adapt to any length you want.

7. Patchwork Ball

Patchwork crochet doesn’t always mean making a blanket that takes miles of yarn and weeks of time. This fun crochet ball is fast and fun — and great for using up little bits of yarn left over from other projects. The tiny hexagons can be crocheted in minutes and then sewn together to produce a sphere ready for stuffing. Perfect for soft play!
