What Makes a Crochet Blanket Perfect for Fall?
This crochet blanket is perfect for Fall because it is designed with six autumn-inspired colors varying from yellows to oranges! You can change up the colors to suit your style or even make one for a different season.
The color-blocked look along with the simple stitches make this a great beginner-friendly pattern that’ll look great when finished. Scroll on down to learn about the yarn to use, the ONE stitch that you’ll need to know and finally remember to enjoy the pattern! But first lets discuss the yarn!
For the entire blanket, you will need to get your hands on some Vanna’s Choice yarn from Lion Brand. Most craft stores, big box stores, and Amazon usually have it in stock.
It is a great yarn to use for items that will get lots of love! Since it is 100% acrylic it washes up great and looks fantastic wash after wash. It is a must keep in my yarn stash for this mom of three!
Don’t forget about looking at lionbrand.com too for your yarn shopping needs (wants!)

Are you looking for a substitute yarn? The Basic Stitch yarn line which is also from Lion Brand would work perfectly. It crochets up similarly and has some great colors to pick from in its line. Be sure to check it out in the link above.
What is The Herringbone Half Double Crochet Stitch?
The Herringbone Half Double Crochet is a variation of the basic crochet stitch the Half Double Crochet. It is easy to learn and creates a great texture to any crochet project. Check out the tutorial and video for extra help.
The Stitch: It is worked up by yarning over, inserting the hook through the designated stitch, yarning over and pulling the hook back through the stitch (three loops on hook) now pulling the hook through one loop (two loops on hook) then yarning over and pulling back through the last two loops. Learn more about the HHDC in this video tutorial/lesson here.
