The crochet blanket is one of the classics in the world of crochet. As a beginner you can practice the various types of knitwear just fine. It does not have to be the delicate white doily like grandma's. There are now many modern patterns for a crochet blanket. In addition, today the colors for a blanket may be mixed colorfully.

In this manual for a crochet blanket, the wool is relatively thick, so that the procedure is not too strenuous even for beginners. In addition, the thick yarn has the advantage that the doily is quite large even with a manageable number of rounds. A crocheted blanket is called "rounds" because you start with a ring in the middle and then add a new pattern round by round until the doily is done. That may be a bit strange for a beginner. But you will soon realize that it is not difficult to crochet a patterned blanket this way.

Material and preparation

Material for a blanket

  • Crochet hook (3.5 mm)

Especially for beginners, it is convenient to orient themselves in the selection of the material to the guidance of experienced crooks.

Tip: If you crochet a blanket with a thicker yarn, it will be larger overall than a crochet blanket with the same pattern but a thin yarn.
