Rocky Road Blanket Crochet Pattern

The Rocky Road blanket pattern is the newest pattern added to the Ice Cream Social Collection. The yarn, combined with a bit of texture, created an amazing ombre look that you will be happy to curl up on the couch with.

Whether you love rocky road ice cream or you just think 2020 was a rocky road, this blanket will be a favorite and maybe even bring you some comfort. It comes in 3 sizes and works up fast. It also has an easy 2 row repeat which makes it a great on-the-go project.

The rocky road blanket pattern uses amazing ombre yarn combined with a bit of texture to create an afghan you'll want to curl up on the couch with when completed.

Ice cream social = a gathering of people with the main focus being ice cream and socializing. And after 2020 I am so ready for some ice cream with friends. So, I had the idea to create a collection of patterns all named after ice cream flavors.

If you’d like to see all the patterns from the Ice Cream Social Collection you can find them at the bottom of this post.
