June 7th, 2011

Pin It

Bold, colorful stripes are everywhere this summer, from the catwalk to home furnishings. To help you take advantage of this trend, we’ve picked out 4 patterns to add a jolt of color to your home. [As always, photos and highlighted text are clickable.]

Crochet Whimsy Stripes Rug

Contrasting colors plus stripes that get thicker and thicker make this rug eye-catching and appealing. Make it any of the colors of Lion Cotton for an easy-care and hard-wearing area rug that matches your decor.

Knit Summer Stripes Baby Afghan

Soft, breezy shades make this baby afghan a sweet gift project. The graphic stripes here play on varying widths of stripes. Make it as-shown or in shades of green, blue, yellow, and ivory for a completely different look.

Crochet Eyelet Strips Afghan

We love the combination of bright strips and delicate eyelets that make up this afghan. An instant favorite, it really captures summer’s charms.

Crochet South Beach Washcloths

Variations on a theme can make for a fun statement in your guest bath. With just 4 balls of yarn, you can make the multiple washcloths shown here.

    I love the striped rugg. I have been incorporating stripes into a new hat design. I am always looking for ways to use up that leftover yarn. I haven’t written the pattern yet but, I crocheted a beanie style hat in 2 colors  I crocheted the top in a contrast black multi color and used blue as the main color, near the brim I did openwork Dc’s and chained and braided the contrast into stripes. It came out pretty good. I’ve been into braiding and weaving rows lately. Thanks for the patterns. Birdie Gee

    My very first crocheted blanket was the Stripes! blanket from this website, I changed up the colors of Vanna’s choice, but it was such a fun blanket to make, so many colors!
