Serenity Blanket Free Crochet Pattern

Multicolored throw blanket thrown over a rock with a beautiful stream in the background.

The Serenity Blanket is a beautiful summery throw style blanket! Use this blanket as decor in your home or take it out for a picnic at the park!

Pattern Details

The Serenity Blanket crochet pattern is made using cotton worsted (#4) weight yarn in up to 6 different colors of your choice.

I used I Love This Cotton! from Hobby Lobby. It’s a nice soft cotton and a true worsted weight.

You will need approximately 1,710 yards total. For the main color you’ll need around 360 yards, and for each contrasting color you’ll need around 270 yards.

Serenity Blanket spread out on the grace with a bible and a travel mug on it in front of a stream.

The throw is approximately 58″ x 42″, but the pattern comes with the multiples used to create a blanket in any size you prefer.

This pattern is rated Easy in pattern difficulty. It is a very repetitive and simple stitch combo.
