A few weeks ago I finished up a new crochet pattern called Elise’s single crochet blanket! This pattern is simple, uses one stitch and is perfect for beginners! I love single stitch crochet blankets. Now that it is done I am excited to be able to finally share this crochet pattern with everyone!
Back to that one stitch I said I used for this design well it was a single crochet stitch! The entire blanket is made of this simple stitch which makes it an extremely quick crochet blanket to work up! This pattern is a perfect crochet blanket for beginner crocheters or someone looking for a fast DIY project!Make this simple beginner friendly Crochet Blanket today! Click To Tweet
Simple, simple, and simple! (My favorite!) So if you are like me and always need a quick gift for a new baby you could work this simple blanket up in no time! Yep it’s the perfect quick gift since it is a single crochet baby blanket and can be done in one day!
For this single crochet throw I used Red Heart Gum Drop yarn in grape which is a really pretty & silky soft yarn! The different shades of pink, purple and the pops of blue in it are just beautiful! You can find this in most craft stores or on Amazon if you’d like it dropped right at your doorstep! (Me please!!) 🙂
