I find making these graphghan blankets so much fun. They can be tedious with all the bobbins involved, but the outcome is always worth the little inconvenience. This MCAL blanket is the perfect addition to your holiday or winter decorations!

This Blanket is perfect for the holiday season!


4 Skeins Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn (Approx 1600 Yards of Worsted Weight) for Background Color (W) (I used Ivory)

2 Skeins of Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn (Approx 600 yards) for Accent Color (G) (I used Jelly Bean)

.5 Skein Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn (Approx 100 yards) for Topper Color (Y) (I used Pale Yellow)

I9/5.5mm Hook or Tunisian Hook

Tapestry Needle


If you want this blanket for more than just the winter season, it will definitely work in other colors!

The materials you choose will have a direct bearing on what the size of your blanket will be, so if you use a smaller yarn or needle, expect your blanket to come out smaller and vice versa.

The directions to the pattern will be written as row counts, there is no intricate pattern writing on how to manage color changes or whether to use separate skeins, carry your yarn, or use bobbins (although I recommend using separate bobbins for each section). If this is your first time doing a graphghan, I recommend utilizing YouTube for video tutorials. There is no graph.

This pattern can be worked in Tunisian, single crochet, or HDC. I don’t recommend doing double crochet because it makes the picture look stretched out and incomplete. Also, if you choose to work in something other than Tunisian, you will need to read every even numbered row backwards. Don’t worry, its nowhere near as complicated as it may sound. If I can do it, you definitely can.
