Photo Tutorial Crochet Pattern: Simple Striped Blanket!


Leave about a 9 inch tail to help you have plenty of tail to weave in. Hdc evenly around the entire blanket. My name is Candy and I’m a wife and mother of two. I’ve been crocheting since I was 5 and crochet has always been a passion of mine. Looking for a nice, long crochet project you can really sink your teeth into? Look no further than this Boho Stripes Blanket.

I have spaces in places in between stitches which make the row look terrible. I did previous row 11 with a sized up hook so that the row would not curl up tight as instructed. I am going to have to pull out previous row to try and fix this crochet sweater dress pattern free I guess. This free crochet blanket pattern by Easy Crochet is a simple project that’s perfect for beginners. You can whip it up in no time and it will keep you warm and cozy as well. I hope you have fun making this gorgeous blanket.

First, of course, do you love the pattern? Blankets can take a while to complete, and choosing a pattern you love will help you stay determined to get it done. First, you’ll want to choose the right yarn for your project.

I was just interested in the bobbles when I came to the page, but I saw such a lovely blanket to make. I purchased one ball of a lot of colours and more than one shade of each. I really intended them for a granny stitch blanket/afghan, I’m seriously considering this one. There is a large discrepancy on the edges of my blanket even after using a larger hook for the required stitches. I hope that the edging and blocking will help this. I am using the same brand of yarn but obviously in different colors.

I myself did not do this with my blanket. When you reach the beginning of your border, slip stitch to close the round, ch1, and begin row 2. Yarn over and draw through all 6 loops, ch1 to close the star and form the “eye.” Continue in this same way until the end. Don’t leave your ends unwoven til the very end, or you’ll never want to do them! I suggest doing them after about every 6 – 8 rows.

Crochet blankets are a popular project – but since they’re so big, they can be intimidating for beginning crocheters. There are a lot of crochet blanket patterns out there, and it can be hard to know where to start if you’re new to crochet. I don’t know about you guys but I am in the stage of life where, at any given moment, I have anywhere from 2-10 pregnant friends in my life! So today I have rounded up 10 FREE, modern striped baby blanket patterns for you. Hi Hannah, my son wanted a bed spread and saw your blanket online, send me the link. I was able to follow along, easy peasy.

I still have the border to add but am happy with the 172 rows I have completed. Your picture instructions are wonderfully clear and a great help. I especially love the look of the Catherine wheel pattern although I am concerned some of the single threads in this part may snap with use. Due to me not counting each row of stitches, mine turned out a little more wavy on one end too.
