It’s almost that time of year again full of football, leaf piles, and everything pumpkin. So the inspiration for this easy crochet blanket came at the perfect time!
Great for Beginners!
If you are a beginner looking for a quick project, then this is the crochet pattern for you! The Pittsburgh throw blanket crochet pattern is extremely simple and uses only the half double crochet stitch, which makes for a fast project! Learn more about the half double crochet stitch here or watch the video lesson instead.
I used Charisma yarn from Michaels stores, but any bulky 5 yarn would work! If you can’t find the yarn, I used, I highly suggest using Lion Brand Yarn Hometown or Wool-Ease Thick & Quick as a replacement.
Let’s get started!
