Playful puff stitches dot either end of the blanket, adding texture and visual interest. The body is a sea of single crochet stitches, allowing you to get into the groove of this quick and easy project. You’ll be planning your next afghan before you finish the first!
Dot To Dot Lapghan Crochet Pattern
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!
Cuddle Up Dinosaur Blanket
The Cuddle Up Dinosaur Blanket features the corner to corner stitch and a roaring good time! Crochet one for your own little wild one with this crochet pattern on Moogly! With this pattern, it's all too easy to see the possibilities! Change up the colors, and you'll go from dino to Cuddle Up Dragon Blanket! Change up the spike colors, use color-changing yarn, your imagination is the limit. And it's a great accompaniment to the Cuddle Up Unicorn Blanket! I used the Corner to Corner or C2C stitch, aka the box stitch to create most of the pieces for this design. But if you're not a fan, don't fret! You can simply make the Body and Head with simple rows of double crochet, or your own chosen stitch. Just work to the dimensions for each piece given!
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.
Parker Cozy Blanket
I love making blankets. As they grow, they keep me super cozy and that is pretty much the reason I designed the Parker Cozy Blanket - because I was cold that day. True story! I love the Parker Cozy Blanket because it has both a cozy and open style of stitching so as not to create a blanket that doesn't allow for some air flow. It is perfect for those cozy nights on the couch! The Parker Cozy Blanket is great for every level of crocheter because it has a wonderful rhythm to the stitching that lets you really get in a groove and will fly off your hook!
Brainless Wonder Baby Afghan
My friends meet your next favorite thing: the Brainless Wonder Baby Afghan. I love a brainless wonder. The kind of project you can laze around in your living room, mindlessly crocheting for hours while you drink your favorite beverage and binge watch Netflix. And if you want to take it on vacation or some such other crocheting adventure, it's game to go without too much fuss. The Red Heart Ombre yarn is gorgeous, and with a fast an easy stitch like the sedge stitch, what's more to love?"
