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!

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.
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.
