Falling in Striped Crochet Blanket
Last month I had the pleasure of making the Falling in Striped crochet blanket by Easy Crochet.
I wanted to make a crochet blanket as a gift for a family member. While searching for a pattern that was simple, attractive, and worked up fairly quickly, I stumbled across this blanket.
Gather Your Crochet Supplies
- Crochet Hook: These Clover Amour crochet hooks are the most comfortable ergonomic crochet hooks!
- Stitch Markers: I love using these colorful stitch markers to mark my stitches.
- Row Counter: With this tally counter, I never lose track of what row I’m on when I crochet.
The Falling in Striped blanket was worked up using one of my new favorite yarns, the Heartland Yarn from Lion Brand. This yarn is so nice to work with. It’s super soft and comes in heathered and tweedy shades.
Because I was making this blanket for a guy, I went ahead and used the yarn colors Grand Canyon and Mammoth Cave that were show in the pattern. However, there are so many amazing color options to choose from.
Additionally, in case you’re wondering, I made the throw blanket size. The pattern includes instructions for making the blanket in eight different sizes.
It took me a total of one month to start and finish this gorgeous blanket. This pattern uses the herringbone half double crochet stitch. However, I chose to use the half double crochet stitch to allow for the blanket to work up even faster. I love that I was able to work on this while binging my favorite TV shows.
Because you’re changing yarn colors with this blanket, I highly recommend weaving in your ends as you go. I personally don’t enjoy weaving in all the ends once I’m finished with a project.
