Emerald Isle Blanket Crochet Pattern

The Emerald Isle blanket crochet pattern is my go-to blanket for curling up on the couch with a good book and staying warm. Reminiscent of Irish cables on those gorgeous Irish sweaters, this blanket will have you dreaming of a vacation to the emerald isle.

The crochet cables make this pattern good for an intermediate crocheter, but an adventurous advanced beginner could give it a try.

The Design Inspiration

The theme for our winter Crochet Capsule was Festive Nights, with a jewel-toned yarn.

I’m of Irish descent, and it’s also one of the best vacations I’ve ever been on, so I decided to choose emerald as my jewel tone. From there is was pretty easy with an emerald theme and me thinking of my time in Ireland to realize I needed to have some sort of cables in the blanket.

I wanted this blanket to be available to all skill levels and not just advanced, so I picked an easier cable. You will still need to be an intermediate crocheter or at least an adventurous advanced beginner. But the results will be amazing!
