Crochet blankets or afghans are a great project for beginner crocheters and advanced crocheters alike.
I love to design crochet blankets, throws and afghans. Whatever you call them they are one of the most enjoyable crochet projects to make.
I love the fact that most blankets are crocheted back and forth in rows which makes them a great project to watch (or listen) to a movie while being worked on.

The Yarn I Recommend For Crochet Blankets
I use a variety of yarns for crochet blankets such as Lion Brand or Knit Picks yarns. Either company is a great choice and has many varieties of yarn to choose from.
My personal favorites from Lion Brand is Vanna’s Choice because it is inexpensive and is available in a great range of colors. Secondly, I would recommend Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick (or Thick & Quick without wool) because it is a great bulky yarn which makes crocheting blankets go quite fast.
Check them both out below.
