Campfire Blanket Crochet Pattern


This lap-size hexagon blanket features a fiery color scheme – a seemingly-random arrangement of reds, purples, and oranges on a neutral gray field. Available as a simple pattern, or with dozens of step-by-step photos.


The Campfire Blanket, a lap-size crochet hexagon blanket pattern, features a fiery color scheme – a seemingly-random arrangement of reds, purples, and oranges on a neutral gray field. To achieve the same look as the sample, work the pattern as written, with three shades of each main color and two grays, arranged in a very precise manner. Alternatively, you can trust your instincts and choose your colors on the fly as you go. I think having multiple shades of each color gives the finished product depth, but if you prefer a more simplified color scheme, simply choose one shade each of red, purple, orange, and gray. It will still work nicely.

This is a great project to work on through the winter, perhaps while sitting in a cozy spot next to the fire. It’s lovely on its own, or as a companion piece to my other hexagon pattern: the Lakeside Forest Blanket. Crochet one of each, for ultimate fireside coziness!
