This Crochet Ombre Blanket has an easy built-in-border. This free crochet pattern uses basic crochet stitches and is easy to adjust.
Below you will find the complete pattern and instructional photos for this Crocmet Ombre Blanket pattern. You will also find all the materials, stitches, gauge, video tutorial, and sizing information.
Crochet Ombre Blanket with Built-in-Border
I am still playing around with the built-in-border concept. This time we will change the colors when you transition from the border to the center of the blanket. We will also add a few stripes by carrying the border across the entire blanket.
Carrying your Yarn
In this pattern, I did not carry my yarn at all. Instead, I pulled from 3 skeins of yarn at once.
The Premium Ad-Free PDF Pattern
Below you will find the free pattern with all the instructional photos and videos needed to complete the pattern, but I am also aware that several of us like to crochet on the couch, in the car, or in bed with a printout of the pattern. This is why I also offer a nicely formatted large font PDF version of the pattern that can be purchased on Etsy or Ravelry. You can print the pattern and take it on the go with you or tuck it into your project bag.
