This relatively straightforward simple crochet blanket pattern involves repeats along with some simple basic stitches (I’ll explain them below) to make for a fun, quick, and easy crochet throw (or one of the other seven sizes too)!
I am telling the truth when I say it is simple to work up and you’ll be happy after your weekend crochetathon when you will have a comfy and pretty stylish looking crochet throw to snuggle up in.
You’ll love it. I promise. But first I want to talk about the yarn I used to make this blanket!
The Yarn That Makes This Throw Blanket Shine
For this particular throw, I went with a self-striping neutral yarn mostly because I fell in love with the color-way Linen Stripe from the Red Heart Soft Essentials line the last time I was shopping.
I do love striped blankets (not the color-changing), so this yarn was perfect because it meant minimal yarn ends to weave in. It is considered a bulky 5 yarn and comes in a beautiful variety of colors and even a baby line!
This yarn was harder to find than most others out there. I had the best luck at Micheal’s for this exact color but you can make this in any color of the Red Heart Soft Essentials line. You can also find it online direct from the manufacturer too.
Be sure to check out the full Red Heart Soft Essential’s lineup so you can see how truly awesome this yarn is.
Uses Only Two Easy Stitches
This easy throw pattern only uses two easy stitches the single crochet (sc) and double crochet (dc). If you are a beginner to crochet, this would be a good blanket if you want something a bit challenging than a single crochet blanket. Learn more about each crochet stitch below.
Double Crochet (dc):
Single Crochet (sc):
It is not overly hard but will challenge you if you are new, which is always a good thing in my book. Ready to get started on this fast crochet throw? Yay! I hope you like it!
