How to Crochet a Baby Blanket
To make this blanket, you need only know how to crochet a few simple stitches. Here is a rundown of the stitches I used, with links to tutorials for most of them.
Intricate Throw Blanket Stitches:
- The single crochet (sc) is a foundational crochet stitch and typically the first stitch taught to beginning crocheters.
- When working the slip stitch back loop (sl st bl), the stitch is completed in the V's backwards.
- Half-Double Crochet (hdc): This is another simple stitch that produces a lovely finished product.
- The hdc bl, or back loop half double crochet, is a half double crochet that is worked into the back loop (or the back V) of the previous stitch.
- The chain stitch (ch) is the foundation of most crochet projects and can be learned quickly.
The knit-like appearance of this blanket is achieved by combining single crochet back loops and half double crochet back loops. Such stitches also produce a warm, hole-free blanket, making them ideal for snuggling up in during the colder months.
Due to the size of the blanket, this is a quick weekend or weeklong project. The chain stitch is the building block of nearly every crochet pattern and project you'll undertake.
The number of chains required to complete a throw blanket crocheted from scratch is:
To make a blanket that measures 52 inches by 60 inches (132 centimeters by 152 centimeters), you will need to chain 105 stitches. Please see the notes section below for details on adjusting the blanket size to your specifications.
Next, we'll talk about the yarn you should use.The Warm Thread
What I Used To Make This Crochet Throw
If you want to crochet a blanket like mine, you'll need some Lion Brand Yarn Wool-Ease Thick & Quick. It's an extremely thick 6 weight yarn, and it's made of 20% wool and 80% acrylic.
The bulkiness of this yarn makes it ideal for quick-to-complete projects. This throw pattern could be the one you've been looking for if you're in a hurry to finish a blanket.
I chose the color "Fisherman" for this throw because I wanted a simple, versatile blanket that would complement any decor.
There are more than 40 different yarn colors available if you'd like to make this blanket in a different color scheme. In other words, you can make a blanket that is completely personalized for you.
A Few Frequently Asked Questions About Blanket Yarn
When making a throw blanket, how much yarn should I use?
You'll need about 14 skeins of WET&Q, or about 1,380 yards (1,262 meters) of super bulky #6 weight yarn, to complete the blanket as written. Because different brands of yarn contain different amounts of yarn per skein, the total number of skeins needed will change. For more information, consult the pattern's yardage chart.
To Change the Yarn in
Hometown Yarn, also made by Lion Brand, is a great option if you're looking for a wool-free yarn. It's a super bulky #6 weight and made entirely of acrylic. Essentially, it operates the same as WET&Q.
Is there a different yarn weight I could use to make this blanket?
In a word, yes. Use a yarn of any weight you like, from medium to five weight and beyond. To figure out how many stitches and rows you'll need for the blanket, make a 4x4 inch swatch. Furthermore, you can then enter the relevant data into our blanket calculator to get an estimate of the size of your blanket.
If you'd like to use a yarn other than a six, some good options are Vanna's Choice, Brava Worsted, and Red Heart Soft, all of which are four weight yarns.

FAQs About Crochet Blankets
Exactly why Did My Crochet Blanket Become Angled?
Adding stitches at the beginning and end of rows, or accidentally placing two stitches in the same stitch, is the most common cause of a slanted crochet blanket. You can use stitch markers to keep track of your progress by putting one every 15 to 20 stitches and at the beginning and end of each row.
When should I use cold water or warm water to clean my crochet blanket?
For the best results, wash and dry the blanket in accordance with the fiber's care instructions. Maintenance for various materials will vary. Cotton, for instance, can be washed in either hot or cold water in a washing machine.
