Easy Cozy Crochet Blanket

We love how it veers from the usual appearance of your usual spread, but gives you the same comfy feeling. Once you find yourself with this blanket, you’d just want to stay in it forever. See for yourself with the free pattern below, or get the ad-free printable PDF pattern here!

There’s still a nip in the air at this time of year, so it’s a perfect time to grab a cozy blanket and cuddle up on the couch with a good book.

I was getting a bit bored of always making baby hats so I decided I needed a new crochet project. When my daughter Noelle saw me looking at blanket ideas she begged me to crochet her a blanket.  I knew Noelle would really enjoy and appreciate a special crochet blanket that I could make just for her.

I formulated a plan and took Noelle to the store to pick out some yarn. She picked out this fun and colorful Bernat Blanket yarn that’s super chunky and has great colors.  I also picked up a size P/11.5mm crochet hook and went to town on my newest crochet project.

This blanket was inspired by Melanie Ham’s “Easy Beginner Crochet Baby Blanket Tutorial” on YouTube.

This easy crochet blanket pattern works up really quickly. I’m not a fast crocheter and it took me a little less than a week to finish it off.

Noelle loved the finished crochet blanket and uses it all the time now. It’s great because it’s cozy without being too warm. I’ve used this blanket on occasion myself and it really is the best of both worlds.

My finished blanket is 44″ x 55″ which is the perfect size for my daughter. Before we dive into this cozy blanket, do you love cozy too? Check out my NEW Massive Pattern & Class Sale.

Pattern

Blanket 

Ch 60 (multiple of 2+6) 

Row 1: Dc in 4th ch from hook (skipped chs count as additional dc), sk next ch, [2 dc in next ch, sk next ch] across to last ch, dc in last ch. (57 dc) 

Note: This creates groups of 2 dc across the row. In the next row you will be working into the spaces between these groups. These are not chain spaces, you simply insert your hook between the posts of the stitches. 

Rows 2-50: Ch 3 (counts as dc throughout), dc in the sp before the next st, [sk next 2 sts, 2 dc in the sp before the next st] across to last 2 sts, sk next st, dc in last st. 

Fasten off. 

Fringe 

Cut 60 strands of yarn, each 8 inches long. 

For each section of fringe, fold one strand in half to form a loop, matching up the cut ends. Use your hook to pull the loop through the desired space. Pull the cut ends over the edge of the fabric and through the loop. Pull to tighten. 

Add 30 sections of fringe to each end of the blanket in this manner. Place one section at each corner, and the remaining sections in the spaces between the 2-dc groups.
