This pattern is for a crochet speed hook blanket. A perfect couch blanket that measures 82″x43″/ 208 cm x 109 cm (adult) or 48″x43″/ 121 cm x 109 cm (child).

Size: This is just long enough to lay under and be completely covered, with some slack for curling up at the shoulders and around the ankles.

Yarn: The yarn I chose is Pound of Love by Lion Brand Yarns. I love working with LBY because the quality of the yarn doesn’t pill and shed, it’s easy to work with especially for crocheting. Even though the yarn is acrylic, it feels soft in the hands to work with and also sturdy enough for a large blanket. I used Oxford grey with Charcoal grey on one blanket and Oxford grey with Hunter green on another blanket, in photos.

Yardage: I used 1.5 skeins of each color, holding two strands together. I round up to 2 skeins of each color for supply buying purposes. I also would like to mention that if you are interested in making this blanket for a child, you will finish after using only 1 skein of each color, and your blanket will roughly measure 48″x43″ / 121 cm x 109 cm.

I hope you enjoy making this pattern! Tag your creations using #thespeedhookblanket and #crochetcolorfully !
