This simple crochet blanket pattern featuring fun stripes is extremely easy to make which makes it perfect for beginner crocheters and those who are looking for a quick weekend crochet project.

USES A SIMPLE DOUBLE CROCHET STITCH!
This simple striped blanket is worked up with just double crochets which makes it easy & quick! I love using simple crochet stitches in blankets because I love fast crochet projects and simple stitches means a blanket that is done faster! 🙂
EASY TO PICK UP AND START
Another great thing about this blanket is that when you do decide to sit it down for a second you don’t have to worry about where you are in the pattern! The only thing you will need to worry about is to just need to keep on double crocheting!
THE YARN You’ll want to use for your Double Crochet Afghan
For my whole blanket I used one of my favorite yarns, Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice! The colors I decided to go with were Dusty Blue, Charcoal Grey and Linen. The colors go so well together and are pretty neutral color palette which is just my taste! The color combinations are endless so feel free to make this blanket in any color palette you can imagine!
