“This beginner crochet blanket idea came to me thanks to a chat I had with a lady in the yarn aisle. I’ve learned so much in the yarn aisle over the years! She told me that anytime she has a baby blanket to make, she buys Homespun yarn and simply single crochets the entire thing. The yarn itself is super soft, squishy and has a really unique texture which makes a super cute blanket. She was buying the yarn that had various colors, but I decided it would be fun to design a blanket with the solid colors to give it a modern striped look. I absolutely love how this turned out! It’s made entirely with half double crochet stitches and single crochet stitching. Perfect if you’re a beginner or you want a super easy blanket pattern.”
Whoever gets to snuggle up with this blanket is going to be in love! The soft bouclé used to make it is so cozy and squishy and just wonderful. And it works up pretty quickly, which is nice. Just a tip for working with this yarn since it’s a little differently textured than most, if you’re having a hard time finding your next stitch (sometimes that texture makes it hidden) simply feel with your fingers to locate it. Easy peasy!
