Marly Bird Crochet Patterns Designed in Blue
I used blue in eight of the ten crochet patterns in my Simple Baby Blankets ebook. Blue is the primary color in four of them. For example, see the dark blue in the Mosaic Diamonds blanket pattern from this book:
Of course, you can make any of my crochet patterns using the blue yarn of your choosing. But here are a few more that I designed in blue:
This quick and easy crochet headband pattern is perfect in a bright blue. It’s a great instant gratification make, stashbuster or gift project.
This is a great example of a crochet hat that’s multi-colored but the dark blue holds it all together.
I got to design and crochet this free shawl pattern in a blue shade of my Chic Sheep yarn.
Let the yarn do all the work as you crochet this blue lace shawl.
It’s always fun to try new yarn. For example, I made this crochet messy bun hat in Red Heart Reflective yarn. It’s blue but it’s also visible at night!
Oftentimes when you join my stitchalongs, you get the chance to choose your yarn. But, of course, I suggest what I’m going to use. And when I did the 2018 Game Day Make-along (that’s the Super Bowl Day event I do each year), I choose to crochet in blue.
This granny square cardigan was also a crochet-along project. Mostly in blue.
The Rainbow Sprinkles crochet shawl free pattern is made with It’s a Wrap yarn using a colorway that combines hues of blues and purples. I suggested it as a great gift for mom last Mother’s Day, but it’s good for women of all ages at any time of year! Don’t you think?
The matching crochet hat, cowl, and mittens set in my Yarn Pooling Made Easy book is a mostly-blue design.
Marly Bird Knit Patterns Designed in Blue
Of course, I’ve designed other patterns in blue. And since I love to be bicrafty, some of those blue patterns are knit patterns. For example, check out:
The Chill Out Winter Hat is a Fair Isle knit hat with a beautiful Latvian Braid detail. And it’s knit in beautiful blues.
The Marly Made Me Do It (MMMDI) knit cardigan with pockets is a free crochet pattern that makes the most of blue yarn!
The It’s So Suite Hat is a one-ball beginner-friendly project in blue.
Wash away the blues with my Diamond Brocade Dishcloth free knitting pattern.
The Tilted Blocks shawl is a garter stitch shawl worked in a half circle shape for a unique design.
In 2020, I collaborated with Moogly on the Leap Day Mystery Make-Along. I did the knit design, which turned out to be a mostly-blue capelet.
As I said, I do the Game Day CAL/KAL every year. It’s no surprise that in 2020 a lot of blue showed up in the design too!
In my Ultimate Guide to How to Knit Socks, I shared some of my favorite beginner sock knitting videos and patterns. As you can see, I like blue socks!
Now, don’t you want to go get your blue yarn right now while the weekend yarn sale is still happening?
