I’m continuing my quest to create as many different crochet blanket patterns with self-striping yarn as possible. I didn’t really plan to make this a thing, but it’s now a thing.

Here are a few of my other patterns featuring this yarn:

And if that’s not enough, here’s a round-up of even more self-striping yarn patterns from around the interwebs.

Yep, needless to say, I’m a bit obsessed.

It probably has to do with the fact that I love stripes, but I don’t like weaving in a bunch of ends. 😉

Right now, I’m working on another crochet camping blanket to celebrate the beginning of the camping season. Most likely it’ll be with self-striping yarn, but we’ll see…

The Ethan Throw

The Ethan throw is made using a solid gray colored yarn and a beautiful Mandala self-striping yarn that features blues, greens, yellows, purple and red.

If you’re familiar with Tunisian crochet stitches, you just might recognize the smock stitch.

I’ve been wanting to make a blanket with this stitch forever but knew I wanted to mix it up a little and not just do a solid color.

After a few experiments and some smock stitch practicing, the Ethan throw was born.

I also made one of these blankets with cream yarn and another Mandala colorway.

The Ethan Throw Tunisian Crochet Pattern


The Ethan crochet throw is all about two things: color and texture. You’ll be amazed at how lightweight this blanket is and how fun it is to snuggle up under. It is a very delicate stitch, so be careful with this throw around young kids and pets.
