The idea of the blanket was born, when I needed a cheering up project, that wouldn’t require following a pattern. Something really relaxing. No counting.

Also, it had to be practical, I mean: not only fun to make, but also fun to use. A colorful, very easy and big enough crochet blanket seemed perfect to me.

I decided to work with moss stitch, which is arguably one of the simplest crochet stitches, but also: least yarn consuming, I guess. Alternating chain and single crochet stitch create a nice, flat and even fabric. So the colors play the leading role.

I worked with seventeen colors, which allowed me to be creative while crocheting. I have to admit I didn’t have any specific color sequence in mind when I started. I allowed myself you change them on the go. So I wanted to start with similar colors, then decided to break the sequence with contrasting ones. After that I tried how it works, when I am a bit more consequent with rainbowish sequence for longer. I continued that way, breaking it from time to time and starting the rainbow-like thing from another color. And here’s the result.

However, the pattern allows to combine any number of colors in any sequence, according to what you have in your stash or what you like best. Make it either regular stripes sequence, or use different tones of one shade, or use up ALL your scraps and make each stripe different.

One thing may keep you away from this all the way easy and rewarding project. Weaving in all those many many ends. I know it, I was there too.

I’m sorry, no magic trick here. What helped me was the mindset: I just took my needle, and row by row, end by end I was weaving in, meditating, how pretty thing I am about to finish. That’s it. And I was right!

Can’t wait to see what color combo you use! Don’t forget to tag me @pukapukapl in social media when you make your blanket. I’d love to see it!

To finish, you may, but don’t have to, add a simple ribber border. Find the instructions below.

Fasten off. Weave in alllll those ends (be brave!)


If you want, you may add a simple border. You will need approx 75g/2.6oz of yarn of your choice, I chose Light Heather Grey, as it was a nice neutral finishing to this project full of colors.

For a nice ribbed effect, in Round 2 use fpdc and bpdc sts. Fphdc (front post half double crochet) means you insert your hook from front to back around the post of the next st and work a hdc. Bphdc (back post half double crochet) means you insert your hook from back to front around the post of the next st and work a hdc. (See pictures, where to insert hook.)

This pattern is available as ad-free, printable pdf on Etsy HERE or on LoveCrafts HERE.

Round 1: Join yarn B anywhere on the outer edge of the blanket, hdc around the blanket, 3hdc in each corner, sl st to first st.

Round 2: Ch1, *fphdc, bphdc*, rep *-* to end. In corners continue the pattern of alternating fphdc and bphdc, but work three sts around the corner post.

For example: if you get to the corner post and you are supposed to work a fphdc, work fphdc, bphdc and fphc all around the same corner post.  Then in the next st, continue the alternating pattern, working the opposite of whichever stitch you just used (in this example: bphdc).

Sl st to first st. Fasten off. Weave in ends.
