Jora – a cool geometric crochet blanket pattern
I’m thrilled to introduce you to my latest uber-cool geometric crochet blanket, Jora.
Jora has a simple geometric tapestry crochet design which builds up to create a really stunning blanket.
Jora means “autumn rain”. I chose this name because, for me, the blanket evokes feelings of harvest and rain drops. Whatever the shapes remind you of, their attractive repeating simplicity makes the Jora Blanket a really relaxing and mindful make, whilst creating a blanket with a truly striking pattern.

The Jora Blanket
Jora is worked in rows of htr (or hdc in US terms) to create an attractive repeating diamond pattern. It looks fabulous in two colours but some of my testers have tried introducing more colours with some great results. It’s a fabulous project to have fun with, playing around with different colour combinations.
The diamond pattern uses tapestry crochet and there are links to video tutorials in the pattern, and also below, showing you exactly how to do this. Plus, the pattern includes full written instructions and explanations for how to do the techniques used in the blanket. However, if you have any questions at all, please just send me an email and I’ll be happy to help.
The pattern details
The Jora Blanket was made with Hobbii Rainbow Bamboo (4 ply; 250m / 100g ball; 60% bamboo viscose, 40% cotton):
- C1: 3 balls in Curry (20)
- C2: 3 balls in Natural White (02)
- C3: 1 ball in Ocean Blue (35)
This bamboo-cotton blend gave a super smooth and soft result, with wonderful stitch definition. However, if you wanted something a bit cosier, you could switch to an acrylic or wool yarn.
You could also substitute the yarn for a thicker yarn, such as DK or aran, for a slightly thicker (and larger) blanket.
I used a 2.5 mm hook to make the blanket with the above yarn. You might want to choose a smaller or larger hook if you use a different yarn weight, or depending on your own tension.
The finished blanket measured 67 x 87 cm. However, you can easily adjust this by increasing or decreasing the number of stitches per row. The pattern explains exactly how to do this.
