How to Crochet the Beautiful “Virus” Blanket
“Do you want to know what EVERYONE is crocheting? What’s on the top of everyone’s crochet list, what’s hot and trending? This is a must crochet: The Virus Blanket! I kept seeing this pop up on Pinterest constantly so I finally clicked on it and took a look. I was in LOVE.”
I’m a member of a couple of Facebook groups dedicated to crochet, and the trending pattern on these pages is the virus blanket (or shawl or poncho.) Don’t be thrown off by its unappealing name– the virus pattern is supposedly so-called because it quickly went viral online. This pattern has a light, lovely, airy look to it and is definitely feminine and delicate. And what makes it even better is that it’s really easy to pick up the pattern and you can make this blanket as big as you want to! No wonder it went viral so quickly.
