January Blues Crochet Lap Blanket

crochet lap blanket pattern

Happy January everyone!  My favorite color is blue and sometimes I can't pull myself away from making a blanket using it. Sometimes I'll make it all blue and sometimes I'll add some other complimenting colors like in this pattern. I've been working on this crochet lap blanket here and there for a few months now and finally got it finished for a new year posting!

At first glance, it seems like it might be a complex stitch, but it's really not! Basic double crochets and chaining is what makes the stitch pattern for this beauty! The yarn I used is my favorite brand Red Heart. My colors are Soft Navy, Light Blue, Grey Heather and Buff.

My version measures 40" long and wide enough to cross my lap. Make yours as wide as you like!

~One 7oz skein each of the above colors
or your favorite colors!
~H8/5mm Crochet Hook
~Sharp Scissors
~Darning needle

With Soft Navy, ch 260 loosely. This blanket is worked lengthwise.

Row 1: sc in second ch from hook, *ch 3, sk next 2 chs, dc in next ch, ch 3, sk next 2 chs, sc in next ch; repeat from * across and finish off. Weave in ends.

Row 2: With rs facing, join a new color with sl st in first sc, ch 4 [counts as 1st dc plus ch 1 throughout], dc in same st, sc in next dc, *dc in next sc (ch 1, dc in same sc)twice, sc in next dc; repeat from * across to last sc, then do (dc, ch 1, dc) in last sc

Row 4: With rs facing, join a new color with sc in first dc, *dc in next sc, (ch 1, dc in same sc)twice, sc in next dc, repeat from * across.

Row 5: Using same color as in Row 4. Ch 1, turn, sc in first sc, ch 3, sk next dc, dc in next dc, ch 3, sc in next sc *ch 3, sk next dc, dc in next dc, ch 3, sc in next sc, repeat from * across, finish off and weave in ends.

I did a final row with the Soft Navy that matched the first row. I did not add any borders.

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!

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!
