The Inspiration Behind This Easy V-Stitch Crochet Blanket

My son A asked me for a blanket for his (also his brothers) room, so he had something to keep cozy while reading. I had made my other son a color-blocked throw which meant it was his turn to have his own too!

He is loving Harry Potter now and reads every day! Yep, proud mama here. If he asks for a blanket to read, I am most definitely going to oblige him! Since his room is a gray, navy, and white sports theme, we wanted a blanket that would go with that color scheme.

So, we picked (OK, he did) the matching colors in yarn from Lion Brand and I had the green light to get started!  The yarn for this post was generously supplied by my friends over at Lion Brand Yarn! Thank you!

The Yarn That’s Perfect for The V Stitch Double Crochet Blanket

We decided to go with the Color Made Easy yarn line because of the current color choices plus I never can pass up a great #5 bulky yarn! It is a five weight yarn and has amazing color choices to pick from.

If you have ever worked with Woolspun from Lion Brand, this yarn has a very similar feel and look to that line. Ultimately, we ended up with the colors Shade, Birch, and Huckleberry, which matches his & his brothers’ room perfectly!

Need a substitute yarn? Try the Hue & Me yarn line from Lion Brand, which is also a bulky 5 yarn that has amazing colors too!

So now that you picked your favorite yarn colors and decided on making this blanket, it is time to get started! Keep on scrolling down to find the pattern to learn how to do the v-stitch in crochet and a full list of supplies.

This simple & classic v-stitch crochet blanket pattern is quick to work up and creates a beautiful textured looking piece! Enjoy and Happy V-Stitch Crocheting!

Notes

  • Written in standard US terms 
  • Read up on my tutorial on how to change colors in crochet because it will come in handy for this blanket design.
  • I did carry the yarn through with the birch row & huckleberry small rows, so I didn’t have to weave in those ends, but the rest of the rows I followed the method above. 
  • Yarn yardage will change when making a different size than the one shown.
