I used Red Heart Soft Yarn for this 4 color crochet blanket and let Sam pick out the colors. He did a pretty good job with his color choices and I really love how this colorful throw turned out.
Red Heart Soft is a 100% acrylic yarn that is available in a wide variety of colors, so it will be easy to crochet a blanket that is uniquely you.

I did not follow a set of rows for each color. I changed the yarn colors when the color was up in the skein, which was about every 18 rows.
