The Charlotte crochet blanket is a great beginner crochet pattern and uses only two basic stitches! I would suggest this blanket to anyone looking for an easy weekend project! 🙂 I started mine on a Friday and finished it up on Sunday night!
I always find myself watching tv when crocheting so I recommend adding Netflix to your crochet marathon to make it even more fun and plus it makes the time go by so much faster!
Maybe I can call it Croflixing? Whatever, it’s called it’s fun! 🙂
For my blanket I used Lion Brand Wool- Ease Thick & Quick in Gray & Claret which is a chunky yarn and so cozy to work with! It is considered a super bulky yarn so whatever you are crocheting with it works up super fast! I call it a win win since this blanket is a cozy and fast project! I also used my huge 15.75 mm crochet hook which is always a blast to work with because my kids think it is so funny how big it is! 🙂
It is written to be a great throw blanket for on a couch or chair. But below in the pattern I’ve included notes on how to make this blanket smaller or larger if you need it to be. You will need to adjust the amount of yarn needed, but it will still work great! 🙂
I also wrote up an AD-free PDF of this pattern because let’s face it some Ad’s are really annoying! But if I want to keep offering free patterns, then Ad’s are a must on here. If you are not interested in the PDF keep on scrolling down to find the full, FREE version of the Charlotte Crochet Blanket below.
