Why You’ll Love this Blanket

This cozy blanket is perfect for chilly fall days when you want to snuggle up close to a fire and sip on a cup of hot tea! Or, if you are anything like me, COFFEE!

I love using it to wrap up in when I’m binge-watching all the Netflix, Hulu, Amazon shows! 🙂 It also helps that it looks fantastic draped across the back of a couch. So, for me, this blanket is a win-win.

The Crochet Stitches for this Autumn Blanket

The main crochet stitch pattern used in this pumpkin blanket pattern is the double crochet stitch. The double crochet is simple to learn and is a great stitch to work up a blanket when you are a beginner crocheter. Since we are using just one stitch, you will be able to crochet this Fall crochet blanket fairly fast.

The Yarn That Reminds Me of Pumpkin Spice

The main reason I decided to make this crochet blanket is that I love this time of year and the beautiful colors I’d seen outside! I chose to use Vanna’s Choice Yarn from Lion Brand because of how well it holds up to use and the never-ending choice of yarn colors!

Yarn Colors for a Pumpkin Blanket

I used Grey Marble & Rust because I think they are the perfect blanket colors for Fall and a great way to celebrate Autumn! You are welcome to pick your favorite yarn colors for your blanket.

I’d have to say I’ve tried them all (or have almost tried them all) and I haven’t come across one yarn color I didn’t like yet. Take a look at the yarn colors above that I used to create this Fall colored crochet blanket.

  2. Hopefully someone can help me out. I know the pattern says at end of row chain 2, turn and sc in the first skipped stitch of previous row. Would that be the first or second stitch from hook? I love the colors and texture of this blanket and look forward to finishing. Thank you.

    1. Hi Christine,
      It would be in the skipped st space that is after the last st from the row before. Take a look at the stitch chart that is in the notes section that may help with placement.


  3. I’m attempting to make this a bigger size 48×60
    How do you figure the amount of yarn to use ?
    I’m thinking perhaps 5 each ?
    Thanks for your response!

  4. Krista,
    This is Karen and I wanted to let you to know about my blanket and how it is going.

    First I frogged what I had started previously and did a gauge swatch. I then changed my hook to a 7mm hook. This made a huge difference in my blanket! No more curling because I am really focusing on relaxing while I crochet! Another thing helping with the curling up of my stitches! I will send a photo when I am done!

    Thank you so much!

    Karen O

  5. Krista,

    Should I go to a bigger crochet hook? What are some tricks or things I can do to relax so my stitches aren’t so tight? Any thoughts?
    Thanks and I will look into blocking my blanket!


  6. I would like to make this patter quite a bit bigger, but I’m not sure what add 3 chose to whatever amount you picked means. I always mess patterns up when I try to make them bigger, so I really want to get it right this time!

  7. What does add 3 “chose” mean? I’d like to make this quite a bit bigger and I always seem to mess a pattern up when I do that so I want to make sure I get it right

  8. I love the look of this blanket and the pattern was very easy but I have a problem. I used a 5.5 hook, didn’t use the Vanna’s choice yarn but used Red Heart With Love which is also a 4 yarn. My finished blanket ended up being 27 x 31. My stitch count is correct so I don’t know why the size is so wrong.

  9. You say (cluster) but I have looked everywhere and dont see any explanation of WHAT your CLUSTER STICH IS!!!! CAN YA HELP ME OUT HERE

    1. Hi Ruth,

      It is inside the pattern but I put an extra note inside the abbreviations section now so it is easier to find.

      {1 sc ,1 dc} equals cluster

      Happy Crocheting


  10. I was never able to get the instructions to print for the Pumpkin blanket.
    would you please send the instructions to me via my e-mail?

  11. I’m confused as to how many skeins to use if using two colors. Please advise and I think this blanket is absolutely lovely.

    1. Hi Lori,
      You can change the size of the blanket by working in multiples of 10 ch’s and adding 3 chose to whatever amount you picked.

      Happy Crocheting!

  12. What would be a good border to add to the blanket I love the pattern but would like to add a border to mine.

  13. Just finished this blanket in four colors. It was easy but created an interesting texture. I still need to block it a bit to straighten out the edges, but I like it a lot, and I’ll probably make more in different colors. Thank you!

  14. Your material list says 6 colors and 3 of each. Would that be a total of 18 skeins? I am planing on making this beautiful afghan for a gift in different colors. Thank you for sharing your beautiful work!

  15. I follow you on all social media and love all your post. Just a little confused, *{1sc,1dc} sk 1 ch* in the 3rd ch you would do a sc & a dc, then skip one, then do it again and repeat? Just want to make sure. Thanks!

  16. I am all kinds of confused as I am a knitter learning to crochet. I don’t understand the “starting in ch space (ch you sk) from previous row”. I don’t know where which chain that is. Is it the 2nd ch from starting ch row?
