Common Questions About Crochet Blankets

Here we answer some common questions about Crochet Blankets.

How Much Yarn Do I Need To Crochet a Blanket?

Answer: The amount of yarn you will need to crochet a blanket depends on the size of the blanket, the stitch pattern you plan to use, the weight of the yarn, and your tension or gauge. As a general rule of thumb, for a classic pattern such as the throw blanket size (approximately 50 x 60 inches), you will need about 1,800 to 2,000 yards of worsted weight yarn. For larger blankets, you will need more yarn, and for smaller ones like a baby blanket size, you will need less.

How do I Wash a Crochet Blanket Correctly?

Answer: To clean your crochet blanket, you have two options. The first one is to handwash it by soaking it in a tub of water with a mild shampoo solution. Alternatively, you can machine wash it by putting it in a laundry bag and selecting the delicate cycle.

How Long Does it Take to Crochet a Blanket?

Answer: The time it takes to crochet a blanket varies depends on the size of the blanket, the stitch pattern used, the thickness of the yarn, and your level of experience. If you are a beginner crocheter, it may take longer to complete a crochet blanket pattern than it would for a more experienced crocheter. For a standard blanket size throw (measuring around 50 x 60 inches) and using easy crochet blanket patterns, it can take anywhere from 20 to 30 hours to complete, depending on your crocheting speed and the complexity of the pattern.

What Size Crochet Hook Do I Need to Crochet a Blanket?

Answer: Choosing the right size of crochet hook for your crocheted blanket depends on a few things, like the thickness of the yarn, the stitch pattern you're using, and your personal crocheting technique. Typically, for worsted weight yarn, which is a popular choice for blankets, a hook size of H-8 (5mm) to J-10 (6mm) works well for most stitch patterns. But if you're working with thinner or thicker yarn, you'll need to adjust the hook size accordingly to get the best results. If you're following a pattern, it's always a good idea to refer to the instructions for the recommended hook size. Alternatively, you can also check the yarn label for information on the recommended hook size based on the weight of the yarn.
