Easy Cozy Crochet Blanket

Easy Cozy Crochet Blanket – a great pattern for beginners.

There’s still a nip in the air at this is the 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 project. When my daughter Noelle saw me looking at blanket ideas she begged me to make her a blanket.  I knew Noelle would really enjoy and appreciate a blanket that I made just for her. So I formulated a plan and took Noelle to the store to pick out some yarn. She picked out this fun and colorful yarn by Bernat 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 project.

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

This blanket is super easy and crochet’s 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 blanket and uses it all the time now. It’s great because its 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.

Easy Cozy Crochet Blanket Pattern 

Materials:

  • Hook: U.S. P/11.5mm
  • Size 5 Bulky Weight Yarn – Bernat Baby Blanket Yarn – 4 x 300 grams balls (255 yds) in Peachy. 
  • Scissors

Directions:

Ch = chain, sl st = slip stitch, dc = double crochet (U.S. terminology)

If you choose to make this blanket smaller or larger, for the initial chain, make in multiples of 6. For example 42, 48, 54, 60, 66, 72. etc.

Ch 60.

Row 1: In the 4th stitch from the hook, *2dc, skip a ch,* repeat until at end of row with 1 dc in the last chain. Turn.

Row 2: Ch 3. 1 dc in first ch, *skip 1 st, 2 dc in the next st* and repeat until the end of the row with 1dc in the top of the turning chain (making sure the 2 dc should be in between the “v” stitches from the first row). Turn.

Row 3 – 50: Repeat Row 2

Fasten off.

ADDING FRINGE

When adding the fringe, cut the yarn to about double the length you want the fringe to be (mine were 8 inches each total length). Fold your yarn in half and take the side with the loop and push it through the gap on each side of the 2 dc along the border of your blanket. Then get the side with the loose ends of the yarn and pull them tightly through the loop to secure. Continue until both ends of your blanket have fringe across the entire width of the blanket.

DON’T FORGET…
