Blankets make an enjoyable evening or weekend crochet project and give you a sense of accomplishment when they are complete! Even if you are a beginner this easy crochet blanket pattern is one you’ll be able to figure out quickly.

Difficulty:
Easy

Materials needed:
6 mm (J) hook, or hook needed to obtain gauge
2400 yards of Red Heart Super Saver or Red Heart With Love for a 60” x 60” throw
Yarn needle
Scissors

Stitches used: 
ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet

Additional Stitches:
Stitching in the “3rd loop” of hdc. After turning, work all stitches for that row in the 3rd loop of the hdc from previous row (it will be in the front). Instructions: Look at the top of the stitch, and locate the sideways “V”, bend the stitch to look at the back, and you should see another “V”. You’ll be working into the back loop of that “V”, this is called the 3rd loop.When working in rows, this loop will be facing you!

Measurements:
See additional Notes section for sizing information

Gauge:
13 stitches in 4”

Additional Notes:
Start with 192 stitches (193 chains) for a 5’ wide throw, and 228 stitches (229 chains) for a 6’ wide blanket. 300 stitches (301 chains) will give you a King sized blanket. You can adjust the size of your blanket by making the starting chain number divisible by 3 + 1 (the first two chains of the row count as a stitch).
-Ch 2, and ch 3 do count as first stitch of row unless otherwise indicated.
-With the previous note in mind, I’ve put turning instructions at the beginning of the row to hopefully make things easier for beginners working this pattern. This keeps rows all together.
