Crochet the Comforting Granny Stripe Blanket with your favorite cozy yarn or all your leftover scrap yarns for a fun color explosion! This blanket is a repetitive stitch pattern that works up quickly with Bulky weight yarn and a large hook. Finish this classic crochet blanket and curl up with a good book for a comforting way to chase away the cold!


This pattern is slightly different from my Straight Granny Blanket Pattern, because I wanted something with a tighter weave. My main reason for posting this pattern is because I wanted to make this blanket with a larger hook size. I’m not claiming to be the first person to ever come up with this, I’m just wanting to offer my version of how I’m making this blanket, and I hope you find it helpful!
