Ready for a blanket that is cozy as can be, and also can be completely customized? I have a slight (okay, major obsession) with camp blankets, Pendleton & Hudson Bay type throws. These blankets are often extremely pricy, so I have to control myself. But what if we can make our own? They are cozy and reminiscent of quieter days, and days spent in the tranquil outdoors. This blanket was inspired by the woven blankets of the past that you might find in a cozy cabin setting. What do you think? And can you believe I’m actually using color (it happens about once a year haha!) By the way, if you like this style, but you’d prefer it to be knit, you can see my Native Stripes Knitting Pattern HERE.
This blanket is super simple to crochet and is perfect for beginners and advanced crocheters alike. The stitch that you’ll use is the herringbone half double crochet (see a tutorial HERE from New Stitch A Day), which creates an amazing, flat textured fabric. Some folks would even think that it looks knit!
I wanted to use a yarn that is soft, washable and warm, so Lion Brand Wool Ease was the winner. This is one of my all time favorite worsted weight yarns for winter, as it’s a cozy wool blend with an incredible array of colors. (I’m partial to the Natural, of course).
It was a lot of fun to come up with this striping pattern and meld the colors for that southwest, woven look. However, you can customize it any way that you like! Make the stripes thicker, thinner and add fringe or tassels. You can also easily adjust the size of the blanket by simply starting with a longer or shorter chain in any stitch count, and crocheting for more or fewer rows. Yay! Do any of you remember my Mexican Serape Blanket Crochet Pattern? Stripes really can be a lot of fun and projects like this can make great stash busters. Feel free to use your favorite mix of colors!
So, shall we get to this easy peasy blanket pattern?
