What is Modern Crochet?

Modern crochet patterns mean simple, neutral, and clean lines. I tend to design most of my patterns that way, especially crocheted blankets. Sleek edges and a minimalistic color palette are a must, in my opinion, for a modern look.

I love designing modern blankets in blocks of color, straight lines or in a chevron. I have crocheted quite a few blankets with this approach. You’ll see the neutral colors and clean lines in most of the designs I selected below. I hope you love them!

The Modern Henley Crochet Blanket is one of the designs you will find below.

The Yarn That’s Perfect for Modern Blankets

Most of the yarn used in the blanket patterns below are from my favorite yarn company, Lion Brand Yarn! I used Vanna’s Choice, Wool-Ease Thick & Quick, and Hometown USA Yarn, to name a few.

I’ll link up a few of them, so you can look at the available colors. You are welcome to substitute with the yarn you currently have, but try to make sure it is a similar weight to achieve the same outcome as the pattern intended.

Check them out below by clicking the images.

After you pick your yarn and pattern, all you have left to do is grab your crochet hook to get started, which is the best part of crocheting!

Ready to Get Started?

If you’re ready to begin crocheting, then read on down to get started on your next project! Be sure to read through each pattern to make sure you have the correct yarn weight and hook handy.
