Here is a new take on our modern half-stripe pattern with some beautiful shades of Forever Fleece that are perfect for fall, we are calling it the Crochet Forever Fleece Half Stripe Throw.
We love all the new colors that are available now in Bernat Forever Fleece.
This combination is Patchouli, Matcha, Bergamot, and Balsam.
We selected them hoping that the little pop of pink (patchouli) would make a statement and it did!
It’s a fun surprise.
This blanket is based off of our original half-stripe throw we made years ago.
It really is a design that inspired us to continue working with colors in interesting ways.

Other half-stripe blankets that we have made are for babies and have turned out so modern.
This is baby Jack on the Mesh Stitch Colorful Half Stripe Blanket made with Caron Simply Soft.
And we made one more version with Caron Simply Soft:
In this version, the stitch is changed to a wide half-double crochet. All of them really are so fun to make, and are great for when you have scraps of yarn that need to be used.
Happy Crocheting and be sure and scroll to the end of the post for the free printable PDF.

Row 2: Work 1 HDC in each of the next 25 stitches with Balsam, pulling through with Matcha on the 25th stitch, then work 1 HDC in each of the next 25 stitches with Matcha. CH 2 and turn.
Row 3: Work 1 HDC in each of the next 25 chains with Matcha, then pull through with Balsam before finishing the 25th HDC. Work 1 HDC in each of the next 25 chains with Balsam. CH 2 and turn.
Rows 4 – 9: Repeat rows 2 and 3.
Rows 10 – 18: Repeat rows 2 and 3, this time alternating Balsam and Bergamot, making sure the Balsam is on the opposite side as the previous color block. (You can cut the Matcha after finishing row 9.)

With Balsam, pull up a loop in corner and chain 1. Work 1 round of HDC around the blanket, working 1 stitch per row on the sides and 1 stitch per HDC on each chain. Work 3 HDCs in each corner. At starting corner, slip stitch into starting stitch, chain 1 and turn.
