To create the texture in the blanket, you will need to know a few basic crochet stitches, such as the double crochet and single crochet stitch. These two beginner-friendly stitches will be worked together in one stitch to create the beautiful texture you see.
Learn more about each crochet stitch below before you get started.
- Wrap the yarn over (yo) the hook, insert the hook into the specified st.
- Yo the hook again, draw the yarn through the st, so there are 3 loops on the hook
- Yo the hook again draw it through 2 loops, so there are 2 loops on the hook
- Yo the hook, draw it through the final 2 loops.
- Insert hook from front to back in the second chain from the hook or designated stitch
- Bring the yarn over (YO) the hook and pull the yarn back through the chain (or stitch) from back to front (2 loops on hook).
- Yo and pull through both loops on the hook.
For this entire blanket, I used Pound of Love yarn, which is made by Lion Brand. It is a 100% acrylic worsted weight yarn that has over 1,000 yards of yarn at a low price point.
I used the colorway Antique white because I was wanted to create a neutral blanket that would be able to be used in any room of the house.
