Learn 9 new ways to crochet blankets! Our dynamic collection of crochet blanket patterns is ready when you are as part of your I Like Crochet Gold membership.
What do a favorite child, a graduation, and a new home have in common? They’re all the perfect excuses to try out a new crochet blanket pattern! Who doesn’t enjoy tucking in a little one with a handmade blanket, expressing your love for a teen going off to college with an afghan to wrap themselves in when they’re missing home, or presenting a throw that harmonizes with the new décor to a friend who just moved to a new house?
Making a crochet blanket isn’t hard to do, and once you learn the basic stitches, you can quickly progress from basic—but beautiful—patterns to more intricate designs. Traditional crochet blanket patterns with granny squares or shell stitches are as popular as ever, but you know how creative crocheters are—they like to mix it up! Crochet pattern designers are always creating new variations that surprise and delight us.
With these ideas in mind, we wanted to introduce you to our dynamic collection of patterns for Crochet Blankets. You’ll find a mix of designs here, from beginner level to advanced, traditional to abstract, and for babies, kids, and adults. We’ve even thrown in a matching pillow pattern! You’ll find patterns for baby blankets, throws, and afghans. This dynamic collection includes a dreamy cloud and rainbow throw using the free-form crochet technique and the design voted ‘Top Pattern’ on I Like Crochet.
And we can’t leave out the 700 + patterns you get in the I Like Crochet library, where you’ll find everything from home decor to stunning scarves to beautiful tops for every season and so much more.
Hip to Be Square
Granny square afghans are a classic design, but this one adds a twist! The New Easy Granny Blanket features contemporary colors and different-sized squares for a patchwork look. Each round is worked in a different color and the border and picot edging pull it all together. This easy-level pattern comes with a downloadable diagram to keep you on track.
Middle East Inspiration
Whether you dream of traveling to Morocco, taking in the scents of the spice market and feasting your eyes on the tile work, or you just love the Boho look, you’ll enjoy this pattern the whole time you’re working it. Inspired by hexagonal tiles from the Middle East, each motif in the intermediate-level Artisan Tile Throw and Pillow Set pattern, is worked from the center out. They are joined later by stitching them together—we show you how with an easy-to-follow diagram.
Calming Ocean Waves
Send little ones off to dreamland with this longtime favorite: the Ocean Waves Criss Cross Shells Throw. Now worked in shades of bright blue, teal, gray, the shell stitches create a ripple effect reminiscent of water lapping at the shore. So relaxing! The size makes a perfect blanket for a young one or to toss over yourself as you drift off after a day at the seaside. This easy pattern can be completed in two weeks.
Nothing But Blue Skies
Do you dream of trying freeform crochet? When you have a pattern as magical as the Dare to Dream Afghan, who wouldn’t want to give it a go? The design builds on freeform circles and is worked with two strands of yarn to create clouds, blue sky and rainbows. This advanced-level blanket pattern is structured by two parts, the Body and the Edge. Both Body and Edge of the blanket start from the lower left corner and worked entirely from the diagrams we provide.
Shades of Autumn
In our garden, the marigolds are the last to succumb to autumn frost. The moment they do is bittersweet, but at least we have the Marigold Blanket to remind us of their glorious golden shades as winter approaches. This intermediate-level blanket pattern works up in larksfoot stitch stripes with a fluffy texture—not unlike a cozy pile of fallen leaves. You’ll love crocheting this blanket as a gift for a loved one—or yourself!
Don’t forget, as well, that this and every pattern in I Like Crochet comes complete with:
- A list of necessary yarn and tools you’ll need
- Row-by-row instructions
- Special stitch instructions
- Pattern notes
- Detailed, full-color photography
Whether you are just starting out with crochet or you’re an advanced hooker, you’ll find a Blanket pattern that’s right for you, and we’ll be right beside you, with plenty of tutorials and instructions.
Voted Most Popular
I Like Crochet fans voted the Circular Chenille Afghan to “Top Pattern” of 2020, and we’re so pleased to include it in this collection. This easy afghan pattern is worked in chenille yarn from the center outward. The soft (washable!) yarn and large size—86 inches in diameter—will keep you cozy all winter long. The faux popcorn edging adds extra whimsey to this fun, circular design. No wonder it’s popular!
That’s a Wrap
When you’re wrapped up in this stylish crochet blanket, neither you—nor anyone else—would guess this pattern is for beginners. That’s because the Linen Stitch Gingham Blanket puts a modern spin on the traditional gingham quilt. It’s made from 25 linen stitch rectangles—the perfect on-the-go project. This blanket makes a wonderful gift for the college student or a loved one moving to their first apartment.
Got a free weekend? Whip up a Seeing Double Crochet Blanket! It’s true, this beginner blanket pattern can be completed in a couple of days, thanks to bulky yarn and a large crochet hook. The double crochet stitch is used in two ways to make the blanket is cozy and interesting. The color block design can be worked in your choice of colors—coordinate with your décor, the colors of your favorite team, or choose hues that just make you happy!
Follow the Comfort Trail
Another autumn beauty, you’ll reach for the easy Nutmeg Trail Afghan pattern time and again. The half-double crochet V stitch gives this simple design interest and texture. The yarn colors celebrate autumn. Doesn’t the design remind you of following a trail through the woods in autumn? Or maybe it makes you think of curling up in an overstuffed chair with a mug of tea.
