Little Couch Potato Siesta Blanket

Afghans and Blankets

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.

Afghans and Blankets

"Blankets are a necessary part of life. So, you might as well have one you like. The little ripple crochet baby blanket is sweet and simple. It would be a great present for a newborn. Baby blankets are often the first object a baby touches. They get swaddled up in one right after they're born. For this reason, I always recommend making easy crochet baby blankets for hospitals to keep on hand. Crochet baby blanket patterns come in so many different designs and styles. They usually come in a standard baby blanket size and similar color palettes. The baby blanket dimensions could easily be changed to suit your needs."

Easy Weekend Crochet Afghan

Afghans and Blankets

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.
