An Easy Crochet Blanket Pattern!
This relatively straightforward crochet blanket pattern involves repeats along with some simple stitches (I’ll explain them below) to make for a fun, quick, and easy crochet throw!
I am telling the truth when I say it is simple to work up and you’ll be happy after your weekend crochetathon when you will have a comfy and pretty stylish looking crochet throw to snuggle up in. You’ll love it. I promise!
The Yarn That Makes This Blanket Awesome!
For this particular throw, I went with a self-striping neutral yarn mostly because I fell in love with the color-way Linen Stripe from Red Heart Soft Essentials line the last time I was shopping. I do love striped blankets (not the color-changing), so this yarn was perfect because it meant minimal yarn ends to weave in.
This yarn was harder to find than most others out there. This blanket ended up taking me longer than I wanted to finish it because I didn’t buy enough the first time. If you do have trouble finding it Red Heart soft is a great substitute.
So, remember ladies and gentlemen buy at least four skeins of this yarn if you’re going to make the Alissa blanket in the size I have listed below. Shop the yarn.
Uses Only Two Easy Stitches
This easy throw pattern only uses two easy stitches the single crochet (sc) and double crochet (dc). If you are a beginner to crochet, this would be a good blanket if you want something a bit challenging than a single crochet blanket.
It is not overly hard but will challenge you if you are new, which is always a good thing in my book. Ready to get started on this fast crochet throw? Yay! I hope you like it!
