When I recently played around with the blanket stitch, it was love at first row. He he! This is a great “go-to” stitch for so many different projects that you could make. Not only does the blanket stitch work great for blankets, but because it creates a dense fabric, it would also be great for scarves, hats, or washcloths. The stitch uses super simple single crochet and double crochet stitches and it works up quickly and easily. Beyond that, it’s great to use when you want to relax and watch a movie because it’s repetitive and easy to do without paying much attention. Simply make a chain as long as you want in a multiple of three and get to it! See below for the pattern as well as a video tutorial to show you how it’s done.

How to Crochet The Blanket Stitch (Pattern)
Step 1: Make a chain in a multiple of 3
Row 1 Make 2 dc in 3rd ch from hook, *sk 2 ch, sc in next ch, make 2 dc in same ch stitch. Repeat from * to end of row. Sc in final ch st of row. Ch 2, turn.
Row 2 2 dc in first sc below, *sk next 2 dc, make sc & 2 dc in next sc. Repeat from * across row. Make sc in turning ch 2 at end of row, ch 2, turn.
Repeat row 2 for as long as you’d like.
That’s all there is to it. What do you think? Pretty easy, right?
And watch the video below to see it done:
I recently shared a new project (here) on how to make a blanket with this stitch using chunky yarn. (You can see it pictured below)
Don’t you think washcloths would be great with this pattern? What would you use this stitch for?
Hope you enjoyed and thank you my friends!
