The Yarn That’s Perfect for This Easy Crocheted Blanket
For this blanket pattern, I used a worsted weight yarn (that was given to me as a gift) which is no longer available. I recommend Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice as a substitute in its place or even Red Heart Super Saver would even be great too!
I linked up the yarn below so you can check it out.
Do You Want to Make a Different Blanket Size?
If you decide you want this blanket bigger or smaller just start with any even number of starting chains. You could also use the blanket resizing calculator for extra help with sizing. This pattern would be so cute made smaller as a crochet baby blanket and as a bonus it would work up fast sine it’s a littler size!
The Crochet Stitch in This Blanket
This blanket is made with ONE basic crochet stitch which is perfect for beginners. To make this blanket you will need to know how to do a double crochet stitch which you can learn how to do in the link provided. You will not be disappointed with this double crochet blanket pattern, I promise!
I also have a video tutorial on this stitch that will help those who prefer a video. Check it out below!
