The perfectly speckled look of this easy crochet blanket pattern is created by holding 2 strands of different colored worsted weight yarn at the same time.
Opt for a more textured look by instead combining 2 strands of different yarn material (like mohair and wool). If you’d rather skip the double strands, you can replace them with one strand of chunky yarn.
This beginner-friendly pattern features a lightly textured stitch that’s beautiful on both sides. It’s free of holes, making it a wonderful chunky blanket to cozy up under without your fingers and toes getting stuck. Choose one of the 5 available sizes, and this super-fast blanket will be warming your lap in no time!
This printable PDF blanket pattern will walk you through every step.
