A crochet throw blanket is the perfect addition to any home. Not only do they add warmth and comfort to a room, but they also provide a touch of handmade charm. These blankets can be made in a variety of sizes and styles, using a variety of crochet stitches and yarn types. Whether you prefer bold, bright colors or more subtle, neutral tones, you'll be able to make a crochet throw blanket to match your personal style. Plus, the act of crocheting is a relaxing and therapeutic hobby, so making your own crochet throw blanket can be a great way to de-stress and unwind. Whether you use it as a cozy layer on your bed, a snuggly companion on the couch, or a decorative accent in your living space, a crochet throw blanket is a versatile and cherished addition to any home.
Let's get into the pattern! For this throw blanket you will need:
Worsted weight yarn (approx. 1200-1500 yards)
Size J (6 mm) crochet hook
14 stitches and 7 rows in 4 inches of double crochet
ch - chain
dc - double crochet
st - stitch
Chain a multiple of 3 stitches, plus 2 more stitches. For example, for a throw blanket that is 48 inches wide, you would chain 150 stitches (48 inches / 4 inches per 14 stitches = 12 sets of 14 stitches + 2 stitches).
Row 1: In the third chain from the hook, work a double crochet stitch. *Skip the next 2 chains, work 3 double crochet stitches in the next chain. Repeat from * across the row, ending with 1 double crochet stitch in the last chain.
Row 2: Chain 3 (counts as 1 double crochet). Turn your work. Work a double crochet stitch in the next stitch. *Skip the next 2 stitches, work 3 double crochet stitches in the next stitch. Repeat from * across the row, ending with 1 double crochet stitch in the top of the turning chain from the previous row.
Repeat Row 2 until your blanket reaches your desired length.
When you have reached your desired length, fasten off and weave in the ends.
And that's it! You now have a cozy throw blanket made with double crochet stitches. You can customize the size of your blanket by adjusting the number of chains you start with, and you can use any type of worsted weight yarn to suit your style. I hope you enjoy making your crochet throw blanket!
