Winter Blues Crochet Lapghan

Crochet Lapghan Free Pattern

March is almost over, but many of us have the 'Winter Blues' because the cold just won't leave! We recently had snow just the other day and it's now cold and rainy today! Without a doubt, I have the winter blues!

I made this 'granny square' blanket using colors that made me think Cold Winter. The yarn is a shade of turquoise that's more blue than green.

I used Hobby Lobby 'I Love This Yarn', because I really do!


~Worsted Weight yarn in your favorite colors! 
~5mm H8 crochet hook
~Sharp scissors
~Darning needle


 If you're going to do the border in the same color from your square, as I have done, you'll want 2 skeins of that one. The others can be one skein. (7oz)

Begin by chaining 6 and joining with a slip stitch to for the ring. I started with White.
Round 1: Ch 3, counts as dc now & throughout, then put 3 dc in the ring. Ch 2, then (4 dc, ch2) 3 times in the ring. Complete the round by slip stitching in 1st dc and finish off. Use your darning needle to weave the end in, if you prefer.

Round 2: Keeping the right side facing you, join pale turquoise with sl st in any ch2-sp. Next, ch 3 then do (2 dc, ch 1, 3 dc) in the same sp. (sk next dc, dc in sp before next dc) 3 times. *(3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc)in next ch2 sp- this forms the corner. (sk next dc, dc in sp before next dc) 3 times, repeat from * around, join with sl st and finish off again.

Round 3: Continue with right side facing, join darker turquoise with a sl st in any ch1 sp then ch 4 (counts as tr), (4 tr, ch 2, 5 tr) all in same sp, sk next 2 dc, sc in next 5 dc, sk next 2 dc.
*(5 tr, ch2, 5 tr) in next ch1-sp, sk next 2 dc, sc in next 5 dc, sk next 2 dc, repeat from * around, join with sl st and finish off again.

Round 4: Join pale gray with sl st to any ch2-sp again with right side facing, ch 2, then (2 hdc, ch 1, 3 hdc) in same sp.
*hdc in next 2tr, dc in next 3tr, tr in next 2sc, sk next sc, tr in next 2 sc, dc in next 3tr, hdc in next 2tr, (3 hdc, ch 1, 3 hdc) in next ch2 sp. repeat from * 2 more times, then (3 hdc, ch 1, 3 hdc) in last ch2-sp, join with sl st to top of beginning ch2 and finish off.

Round 5: With right side facing, join white with sl st in any corner ch1-sp, ch 3 then (dc, ch1, 2 dc) in same sp, ch 1, (sk next st, dc in next st, ch 1) across to next corner ch1-sp
*(2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in corner ch1-sp, ch 1 (sk next st, dc in next st, ch 1) across to next corner ch1-sp, repeat from * around and join with sl st in 1st dc.

This creates the square. Use your favorite joining method to put your squares together. I used a darning needle and white yarn, and looped the yarn through the back loops only of each square edge.

For the border, I really didn't feel like counting stitches and getting fancy. So I just did sc all the way around to start, then 2 rows of dc.

Ch 27 Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and sc in each ch across. Ch 1, turn
Row 2: sc in 1st sc, *hdc in next sc, sl st in next sc*, repeat * to * across, sc in last sc, ch 1 turn


Row 3: sc in 1st sc, *hdc in next sl st, sl st in next hdc*, repeat * to * across, sc in last sc, ch 1, turn
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until piece is square. Make two and then using a steel yarn needle and the same yarn used for making them, combine them using an overcasting stitch.

A New Year And A New Pattern!

Soft Bobbles Baby Blanket aka Effortless Baby Blanket

Crochet baby blankets are very popular and there are so many out there! Here's a little pattern for you to whip up for the newborn in your life. This pattern is very simple and very easy to make.


There are many on the web that are very similar to this with soft cluster stitches and thus is how I got my inspiration to make my own! I actually used a dish cloth pattern and turned it into a baby blanket. The slanted double crochet clusters make for a weighted blanket with soft bobbles. At first glance, the blanket seems complex but it's really super easy! Make one in beautiful baby blues or choose your own color palette!

Light & Lacy Crochet Baby Blanket

Baby pink, sage green and a soft cream come together to make a delightful crochet baby blanket. I may have put too many stitches on the sides because it made for a ruffled border, which is fine because I think it looks cute that way! The pattern is quite easy!




Create this light-weight, wonderful crochet blanket in a matter of hours! Slanted shell clusters with small blocks of double crochets in a lacy form make this a super easy blanket to whip up! Use it was a great tummy-time blanket or make it longer for the perfect lounge chair lapghan on a cool Summer night! You can make it in the colors shown here, or use your favorite "cake" yarn for non-stop crocheting fun!
