What Are Some Unique Crochet Stitches to Learn?
This question, what are some unique crochet stitches I can learn, Is a question I always asked myself when I first started crocheting! I did and still, to this day, do end up using the simple but fun single crochet most of the time.
The single crochet is always a favorite of mine for crochet patterns and can be extremely useful for beginner crocheters to master early! But once I researched all the different stitches, I was amazed to find out how many stitches for blankets there were!
After you cover the basic stitches you will be ready to make some unique stitch combinations and be able to create beautiful crochet afghans and blankets!
Be sure to check out my stitch database too if you’d like to explore some stitches that may not be on this list.

Before You Get Started Learning These Stitches You’ll Need Supplies
Before you start crocheting these new stitches you’ll need some yarn! Of course.. Right? Below I linked up some of my favorite go-to yarns for blankets and throws. I do tend to shop mostly Lion Brand because of the fantastic quality, plus they are a great family company to support. I also highly suggest Caron Simply Soft due to the incredible colors and softness of the yarn.
As well as the yarn I always suggest having a good pair of scissors, tape measure, a couple of different size crochet hooks and yarn needle on hand. I will share my suggestions below about these supplies too!
Feel free to explore all the different types of yarns & supplies linked up and let me know which is your favorite.

What Are The Best Crochet Stitches to Use for Blankets?
Even to this day, almost five years after starting the Rescued Paw Designs crochet blog, my go-to stitch is the basic half double crochet stitch closely followed by the single crochet. I love basic simple stitches and design a lot of my blanket around them.
I usually use a combination of these stitches in most of my designs like the Single Stitch Chevron Blanket and the Blanket Stitch Throw Blanket. Once you explore this list be sure to leave a comment to let me know which one is your favorite too!
