This modern boho-style crochet arrows blanket square makes a pretty addition to your current patchwork afghan blanket or would make a lovey blanket of all-arrows! Add some fringe and tassels for some extra style. Snuggle under your new cozy and modern crochet blanket or display it beautifully on your sofa or blanket ladder.
This project was part of a collaboration with the Joy Creators, a group of bloggers for Red Heart. Yarn was provided for this project by Red Heart, but no other compensation was provided.
I am part of a fun group, call the Joy Creators. We occasionally work with Red Heart Yarns on various projects and it’s fun being in a group with other indie crochet designers. Last year, one of our own got married and we wanted to make a special (surprise) blanket for her for a wedding gift! We worked separately on our designs (mine being this Boho Crochet Arrows Blanket Square) and then sent them in to one person to have them stitched together and to have a border added. It was such a thrill to finally see the finished blanket after months of preparation. You can see the full blanket with all the squares here.
Isn’t it lovely?
As part of the project, we decided to turn the blanket into a CAL. I, unfortunately, have failed you in that I haven’t introduced you to the CAL until now. Fortunately, crochet blanket squares are usually quick and easy to work so I think you can catch up! (or work at your own pace, of course). You could even browse through all the patterns and pick a few favorites to make the whole blanket.
Read the CAL deets here.
My contribution is this Boho Crochet Arrows Blanket Square, which is made up of simple sc stitches and a cute graph. I have really been enjoying graph work and I feel it adds a modern touch to classic crochet projects like blankets.
Because of the way the square is made, the square looks the same on both sides!
If you are new to color work or would like a refresher, I have a video to give you some help. (if the video doesn’t load, please disable your ad-blocker, as it prevents the video from loading).

Gauge: 3″ = 11 sc (Gauge Pattern)

On rows 12, 24 and 36, work the colored yarn all the way across. This will put both bobbins on the same end. When you get to the other bobbin, carry it for one stitch so you don’t have to stretch it across two rows when you need it again. On rows 13, 25, 37, carry the colored yarn back through the mostly blue row so you have it on the other side again.
1. Sc in 2nd ch from hook. Sc in each ch. Turn. (40 sts)
2. – 46. Work the chart, treating each square as a sc stitch. You will begin each row with a ch 1, working the first st in the same st as the chain. You will turn after each row. Please refer to the pattern notes for tips on carrying the yarn on certain rows.
