Easy Weekend Crochet Afghan
Yes, it is possible to make this easy weekend crochet afghan in just two days. Pair this soft, bulky yarn with a large crochet hook and you are all set to start and finish this pattern in the same weekend. Double Crochet V-Stitch. Normally, the V-Stitch has a chain 1 or 2 in the middle. Since this yarn is bulky, I opted not to work any chain stitched between the two double crochet stitches that make up the V-Stitch. While the yarn is bulky, the blanket itself is not thick. The larger crochet hook paired with the open and lacy stitch makes an afghan with a gorgeous drape that has a soft and squishy feel too.
Easy Ombre Baby Blanket

The body of this blanket uses a V-stitch that is made up of double crochets and chains. The border uses single crochet, double crochet, and slip sts to give a lacy effect. This project works up approximately 29" square and makes a great baby shower gift.
Simple Rib Blanket Border
"This simple rib crochet blanket border is a great addition to any blanket. It is a very traditional looking border and can be worked on any blanket. Plus, it is an easy one-row repeat pattern. For this blanket, you will simply need an even stitch count around the entire blanket. Ideally, you should already have an even stitch count. Your top and bottom row should have matching stitch counts, your sides rows should have matching stitch counts and you will have four corners. Overall the stitch count should be even. But do not worry, I will show you in the video how to correct the stitch count if it is off for some reason."

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.

Made with Lion Brand’s Pound of Love yarn."
Single Crochet Border For Blankets With Dc Rows
"Depending on the height of the stitches used in the blanket design, you will need to make one or more single crochet stitches per each row along the side of your blanket. The bottom and top edges of your blanket only require you to crochet 1sc in each stitch, while the corner stitches will have 3sc to help carry over the yarn to the other side. Today I'm going to show you how to crochet a simple single crochet border for blankets that are made with double crochet stitches or have double crochet stitches at the end of the rows, such as the classic basketweave stitch or the gingham pattern."
