Striped Crochet Blanket Pattern – Free crochet pattern

With the weather turning colder I decided to make myself a lapghan for myself to cover my legs when I am at the computer and this Striped Crochet Blanket Pattern was so easy to make!

It’s rare I make anything for myself so I wanted it to be special. I played around with yarn trying different stitch combinations until I found something I liked. I hope you like it too.

Multiples of the stitch:

6 + 5 this means to DCFS in sets of 6 until you reach your desired size then DCFS 5 more and you’re ready to go.

 

To start:

For crib size DCFS 119

For lapghan size DCFS 125

If you’d prefer to have a beginning chain then just add + 1 so crib would be 120 and lapghan would be 126 then do a row of DC’s starting in the 3rd chain from the hook and then continue with row 1.

ch 2 and turn.
