Happy Fall Crocheting!
This Fall blanket is designed with six autumn-inspired colors varying from yellows to oranges! You can change up the colors to suit your style or even make one for a different season. The color-blocked look along with the simple stitches make this a great beginner-friendly pattern that’ll look great when finished.
Scroll on down to learn about the yarn to use, the ONE stitch that you’ll need to know and finally remember to enjoy the pattern!
For the entire blanket, you will need to get your hands on some Vanna’s Choice yarn from Lion Brand. Most craft stores, big box stores, and Amazon usually have it in stock.
It is a great yarn to use for items that will get lots of love! Since it is 100% acrylic it washes up great and looks fantastic wash after wash. It is a must keep in my yarn stash for this mom of three!
Don’t forget about looking at lionbrand.com too for your yarn shopping needs (wants!)
Check out the colors I used below!
For those of you that have trouble finding the Vanna’s Choice, then the new Basic Stitch yarn which is also from Lion Brand would work perfectly too. It crochets up similarly and has some great colors to pick from in its line.
The Herringbone Half Double Crochet Stitch
The Herringbone Half Double Crochet is a variation of the basic crochet stitch the Half Double Crochet. It is easy to learn. Promise. I will explain it below and also link up to my Youtube tutorial too!
If you have any questions please feel free to join the RPD Facebook group community for help or guidance.
The Stitch: It is worked up by yarning over, inserting the hook through the designated stitch, yarning over and pulling the hook back through the stitch (three loops on hook) now pulling the hook through one loop (two loops on hook) then yarning over and pulling back through the last two loops.
