Best crochet blankets 2023: Colourful and patterned throws for home

Infuse your living space with a warm, homespun spirit

o homely space is complete without a quality selection of blankets.

As a staple design detail for creating a cosy aesthetic, it's an easy way to bring both personality and texture to your home - and it's practical too, after all is there any better feeling than curling up on the sofa under a knit after a long day's work?

The 1970s aesthetic is dominating both the fashion and homeware space where anything that can bring a touch of the free-spirited charm to your interiors is a surefire win. Invest in raffia chairs, add velvet textures to your furnishings, and see our edit of the best crochet blankets to recreate the look.

Synonymous with a boho aesthetic, crochet delivers a new level of homespun appeal to your home. Whether you prefer Urban Outfitters’ obviously hippyish take with yin and yang and peace signs or Zara Home's less statement cream iteration which still adds character through the weave, any would deliver an easy-going Seventies look in one easy hit.

If it's luxury you’re in the market for, it's Missoni or The Elder Statesman that should be on your wishlist, but for more affordable options, Anthropolgie and George at Asda have great offerings too. Or, if you’re feeling creative, perhaps you could take up the craft yourself. Not only is there a great selection of beginners kits for blankets available to buy, but the hobby is also proven to be good for your mental health.

Missoni's signature chevron stripe is instantly recognisable - and we love the neutral tones that make up this crochet blanket. Sure to garner admiring glances from even the most discerning of house guests. If you prefer brights, there's a more vibrant option too.

A blanket that could have been taken from a bygone era, Caramel's throw is vintage-inspired and expertly crafted by artisanal craftsmen - and the colour-combo is to die for.

Crochet doesn't have to cost a fortune - as proven by George at Asda's throw. Crafted using cotton and recycled polyester for a large size of 120cm by 150cm, it scores high on the value for money scale.

With a super soft finish and a snuggly texture, you’ll never want to leave the couch once you’ve hunkered down beneath Loaf's throw.
