I have disigned this crochet blanket with beginners in mind. It’s super simple and the video shows in detail how to make each stitch and also covers how to add in a new ball of yarn, or change colours. I hope this will be a great starter project, for new crocheters that would like to make their first blanket.

This blanket may be made with any weight yarn as long as you use the hook size rercommended on your yarn ball band.

Not essential for this project


I used a chunky weight yarn, which works up really fast making it ideal for beginners. For a small sized lap blanket, you could even make this in as little as a weekend. My chosen yarn also has a self patterning effect meaning you get a beautiful blanket without lots of colour changes. Meaning less ends to weave in at the end. This blanket would also look great made with yarn cakes.
