This geometric crochet lapghan can serve as a small blanket for the couch or the car, and it can also function as a decorative rug. High contrast streams of bobbles accent a simple base of double crochet to bring a modern aesthetic to this easy project. I am obsessed with the uneven striping and lines of bobbles in this blanket!
Although this piece is really meant for the home, I saw so many wearable blankets on the runway this season, and I can definitely see myself sporting this over a sweater while social distance dining outdoors as the temps start to drop!
Drop in the Pond Blanket
Finally, here is the he Drop in the Pond geometric blanket, a wonderful pattern that uses geometric bands of colors to delineate zigzag designs. To summarize, this will be a great classic design for a rustic interior.
Little Couch Potato Siesta Blanket
This Little Couch Potato Siesta Blanket was crocheted over the course of one weekend (at a relaxed pace), with 3 cakes of Pool Party Bernat Blanket Stripes yarn. The yarn was easy to work with and except for the final row of the project I let the colors come out of the yarn cake as they were dyed. The last row I removed a small section in the dark blue in order to use the next color in the ball to complete the final 2 rows in the same color. Two separate colors over the final 2 rows did not fit with the flow of the rest of the blanket. So if you end up in a similar place after you reach row 50 consider cutting out a small section and allowing the next section to take it's place to make the blanket color flow a bit more smoothly. This was a very relaxed and simple project to crochet. I love the striped effect created by the yarn and not having to sew in a bunch of yarn ends! Great for gifts, baby showers, children, floor blankets and cuddle time! Drew's finished blanket measures 40 inches wide and 36 inches long. The stitch multiple is 2+1 so you can create this to any size you wish easily.

Scotty Easy Crochet Lapghan Pattern
This rich and bold lapghan is surprisingly easy to make and is a great project to work on while on the go. The beautiful texture created with alternating stitches in the squares sets off the striping that's layered on top while the simple clean lines in the edging focus the attention on the vibrant colors in the plaid.
Diagonal Ripple Lapghan Free Crochet Pattern
"For the Diagonal Ripple Lapghan, I modified the Diagonal Chevrons Lapghan pattern to create a different chevron or ripple look. Many crocheters love working the classic crochet ripple pattern in BLO to create a neat ridge effect so I gave it a whirl when working on the bias. If you love to work crochet blankets from corner-to-corner (also known as working on-the-bias) and you love crochet chevrons, then you will really enjoy this lapghan pattern."
Modern Double Crochet V-Stitch Chunky Blanket
This modern double crochet v-stitch chunky blanket is a wedding gift. I have had this Caron One Pound yarn in my stash for a while now. Thought it was time to get something made with it. The blanket had to be large enough to cover a queen sized bed. As you can see from the photo, it is large enough. Not too large though so that one or two people can snuggle under it. Additionally, this had to be warm enough to be the go-to blanket on our cold winter nights. Using two strands of yarn makes this a fun and chunky blanket. It also makes for a very warm blanket. I will miss having this cover me up while crocheting when it is below zero here this week. Brrrr. The double crochet stitch is a quick stitch to master and once the pattern is started, there is really little need to count. For me, this makes for a great crochet pattern to work on while watching movies. I think this is a great beginner stitch once you have mastered the double crochet stitch. It is always easy to see where you need to insert your hook in the previous row.
