Great Blanket for Beginners!
The Charlotte Crochet Blanket is a great beginner crochet pattern and uses only two basic crochet stitches!
I would suggest this simple crochet blanket to anyone looking for a relaxed weekend project, and if you would like another comfortable crocheted blanket then I’d suggest trying this chunky crochet throw too!
If you’d prefer to have the PDF version instead that can be found “here” in my shop. Otherwise keep on reading down for the full free crochet blanket pattern!
Easy Weekend Crochet Blanket Project
I always find myself watching tv when crocheting so I recommend adding Netflix to your crochet marathon to make it even more fun and it makes the time go by so much faster!
I started mine on a Friday and finished it up on Sunday night! Easy weekend crochet project. 🙂 Maybe I can call it Croflixing? Whatever, it’s called it’s fun!
The Yarn that’s perfect for a chunky crochet blanket
For my blanket, I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in Gray & Claret, which is considered a chunky yarn and so cozy to work up.
Since this yarn is a super bulky yarn 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! 🙂
WANT to make a DIFFERENT SIZE crochet blanket?
It is written to be a great crochet 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! 🙂
YOU CAN GET THE PDF VERSION ALSO
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.
