Crochet Stitches for Blankets

You can use almost any stitch to make a blanket. Some of the most common stitches found in these Christmas blankets are:

  1. Single Crochet (sc)
  2. Half Double Crochet (hdc)
  3. Double Crochet (dc)

If you’d like to make a tighter stitch blanket, in which you’d use something like a single crochet (sc) stitch. And on the other hand, if you want a looser one, you can move up to a half-double (hdc) or double crochet (dc) stitch.

The patterns below may have different stitches listed, so be sure to look over the pattern instructions completely before you start your holiday blanket. All the blankets below do specify the exact crochet stitch to use, so you won’t have to worry.

Yarn for Crochet Blankets

As for the best yarn to use in these crochet blanket patterns, it is almost always preferred by crocheters to use a fiber that is machine washable, such as acrylic or wool, since it is used and washed often. Each yarn brand usually has the care instructions for the yarn listed on the label.

I think the yarn being easily cleaned is of the most important factors when selecting a yarn. This way, you’ll be able to keep your blankets looking brand new every Holiday season.

A few of my favorites yarns to make blankets with are Vanna’s Choice by Lion Brand, Wool-Ease Thick & Quick by Lion Brand and Red Heart Soft. Both of these yarns are available in a wide variety of classic holiday colors, so you can really customize these blankets to your style.

In the list of crochet holiday blankets below, the designers will also specify which yarns they used to make their designs.

Crochet Hooks for Blankets

I also have a favorite set of crochet hooks to use when I am making blankets. If you will be working on a big project like a blanket, then you will want to make sure your hands are comfortable.

I highly recommend Tulip crochet hooks because they have a thicker grip on the handle and keep your hands from having aches. Take a peek at my go-to crochet hook set below.

To make it easy for you, each of the blanket designs will have the hook size listed with it. This way, you’ll be able to check to see if you have that size in your hook collection.
