Smitten Crochet Blanket

Based on a vintage pattern, the Smitten Crochet Blanket is anything but outdated. The beautiful design features the popular crochet popcorn stitch throughout the pattern, giving the blanket an eye-catching look that you will love. This blanket is light enough to be used during your afternoon nap on your favorite couch or while reading a book. This crochet blanket can also be folded up and stashed inside your car trunk for use on a picnic. Consider crocheting a blanket or two to keep on hand for last-minute gifts for family and friends!

Afternoon Nap

  • Designed by Sherri Hoch

Is there anything better than an afternoon nap under a squishy, soft and warm blankie? I don’t think so! Take a look at this sweet, modern looking and very simple blankie by Sherri Hoch. What’s more, the deep, blue, ocean color adds a fantastic pop to the whole project. The finished size is 55” x 47”.Afternoon Nap

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.
