I know, I know, I said I would post this a while ago. Life just seems to be keeping me extremely busy right now. But hey, here I am!
This blanket is soft and warm but not too heavy so it’s perfect for a chilly morning or fall afternoon. And it’s so simple to make. It won’t be done in a day but it’s a project you can sit down and work on everyday for a little while and it will be done in time for those chilly fall days! So let’s get started!
Now, mine isn’t finished but it’s about a foot long (I know I have a long way to go) so you’ll get an idea of what it will look like. I will post a picture of the finished product soon!
15mm or larger crochet hook
I used Vanna’s Choice, bulky, 100% acrylic yarn in the color Topaz. These are small skeins of yarn so I have a feeling I will be buying ten or more by the time my blanket is finished. At 1.99 each that’s not too bad!
The first row or two will be tough to get through due to the chain being so long and having no shape. Also The length of the chain you make is actually the width of the blanket.
Onto the good part!
*Start out by making a chain of 83.
*Row 1- double crochet into the fourth stitch from the hook and in each stitch across.
*chain 3 and turn your work
*Row 2* double crochet into the fourth stitch from the hook. (The 3 chains you just made count as your first stitch.) Continue with the double crochet in each stitch across.
*Chain 3 and turn
…continue these steps until your blanket is the desired length!
I will post a video of how to double crochet soon so check back this week for some extra tips.
