An Easy Crochet Blanket Pattern!
This easy crochet blanket pattern involves repeats along with some simple stitches to make for an easy quick and easy crochet throw! After your weekend crochetathon you will have a comfy and pretty stylish looking throw to snuggle up in! You’ll love it. 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 the with the color-way Linen Stripe from Red Hearts 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 typical yarns out there. This blanket ended up taking me longer than I wanted to finish it because I didn’t buy enough the first time. So remember ladies and gentleman buy at least 4 skeins of this yarn if you want to make this blanket in the size I have listed below.
USES ONLY 2 EASY STITCHES!
This easy throw pattern only uses 2 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!
