The first thing that comes to mind when we hear the word ‘crochet’ is grandma knitting crochet blankets. No wonder they call those common patterns the Granny Squares. Lately, I’ve been seeing crochet blankets popping up in modern homes. There is a whole world out there – a world of crochet filled with modern patterns. Can you ever refuse a blanket like the one shown below? We especially like crocheted patterns by a French artist Sophie Digard. She has an amazing color intuition, and her stuff is sure very modern. Beautiful and functional blankets, throws and afghans can be a great way to add a decorative touch to any living room or bedroom. If you’ve been thinking about adding one to your room, there are myriads of patterns that can be found on Ravelry and Etsy. Here’s 25 modern designs for your delight. From bright to subtle, from simple to elaborate, from monochrome to multicolor, these are beautiful works of craft. Will you change your mind about crochet?
