What Supplies Do I Need to Make These Blankets?
Depending on the pattern you choose, you will want to get a nice quality yarn in the correct size indicated in the pattern. I love washable yarns for blankets, but some blankets might use expensive fibers that might need careful laundering.
You will also need an appropriately sized hook, scissors, and possibly a measuring tape!
For a quicker blanket, look for a pattern that uses a chunky or super bulky yarn. If you’ve got more time, you can make a blanket with worsted weight yarn or even a light yarn.
What Size Do I Make My Crochet Blanket?
You’ll find blankets come in so many sizes, but I’m often asked about specific sizes. You can check out my Crochet & Knit Blanket Size Guide HERE.
The crochet blankets in the round up today are a variety of sizes, from lapghan sizes to standard afghans, and larger. Designers almost always list the intended size, and sometimes how you might be able to adjust the size.
Okay, let’s get to these pretty blankets! Thank you to all the designers who’ve shared their patterns. 🙂

FAQ’s About Crochet Blankets
How Can I Make A Quick Blanket?
Choose a crochet pattern that uses a large hook and chunky yarn. A yarn that is a super bulky #6 and a size N hook or larger is a great combo to have in order to make a blanket fast.
I’m all about quick crochet blankets, and one of my favorite fast patterns is this one, the Forest Lodge Throw.
How Do I Wash Crochet Blankets?
You will want to always take care when washing handmade blankets, but many of today’s yarns hold up really well!
Look at the yarn label to see the washing instructions. If you want to be able to throw your blanket in the wash, make sure you purchase a yarn that says you can machine wash (and even dry).
Be particularly careful if you’re using 100% wool, as this can’t be washed safely many times. There are superwash wool options that are easier to wash as usual in the mashine.
Acrylics are usually a safe and easy bet to wash, and of course cottons can shrink if not laundered following the instructions on the labels.
Even if my blankets are made with a washable yarn, I still am careful when I wash. I try to make it as gentle as possible, just because these are handmade stitches, and I want the blanket to last as long as possible!
I hope you loved seeing these gorgeous crocheted blankets from so many bloggers and designers! While I don’t do a ton of round ups, I’ve really grown a love of blankets and thought it would be fun to share some beauties out there.
