Designed for crocheters who are looking for a challenge, the colours and patterns used in this blanket have been inspired by Ghana’s beautiful Kente cloth.

Worked in squares and joined at the end, this would make a great portable project.

You will need:
6 balls of the Main Colour
5 balls of Contrast Colour 1
2 balls each of Contrast Colours 2 & 3

This pattern features in Issue 42 of Crochet Now, which was on sale from May 2019 in supermarkets, newsagents and craft stores across the UK. Copies can be ordered from or if you prefer, digital editions are available via
