How To Crochet The Blanket Stitch

Let's dive into the cozy world of crochet, a craft that’s both soothing and satisfying, shall we? I’m here to walk you through a fun project: crocheting a blanket using the blanket stitch, a delightful endeavor that can add a personal touch to your home or make for a thoughtful gift. Whether you're new to crochet or looking to brush up on your skills, this guide is designed to make the process enjoyable and straightforward.

First off, let’s get familiar with the basics. In crochet, the single crochet (sc) and double crochet (dc) are your bread and butter, the foundation upon which many patterns are built. These stitches are wonderfully simple, making them perfect for crafting sessions that double as your me-time. They're the kind of stitches that you can do while binging your favorite series or unwinding after a long day. Once you've got these down, you're well on your way to creating all sorts of beautiful pieces.

Now, onto our project: the blanket stitch. It's a versatile stitch that adds texture and depth to your work, making it ideal for cozy blankets. Here’s a step-by-step guide to get you started:

How To Crochet The Blanket Stitch

  • Step 1: Start by making a chain in a multiple of 3. This will be the width of your blanket, so feel free to adjust the number of chains to get your desired size.

  • Row 1: Make 2 dc in the 3rd chain from your hook (this counts as your first set of stitches). Then, skip 2 chains, single crochet (sc) in the next chain, and make 2 double crochet (dc) in the same chain stitch. Repeat from * to the end of the row. Single crochet in the final chain stitch of the row, chain 2, and turn your work.

  • Row 2: Make 2 double crochet in the first single crochet from the row below. Then, skip the next 2 double crochet stitches, make a single crochet and 2 double crochet in the next single crochet stitch. Repeat from * across the row. Make a single crochet in the turning chain 2 at the end of the row, chain 2, and turn your work.

Continue repeating Row 2 for the length of your blanket. And that's all there is to it! You’ll find the rhythm of the stitch to be quite meditative once you get going.

When it comes to selecting yarn for your blanket, I have a fabulous recommendation. My go-to is always BLINGBLINGYARN’s cotton imitation wool. Not only does it have the softness and warmth you want in a blanket, but it also comes with an extra sprinkle of magic: it’s glow-in-the-dark! Imagine wrapping yourself in a blanket that gently glows, adding a cozy ambiance to your room. It’s perfect for those who love to add a bit of whimsy to their crafts.

Choosing BLINGBLINGYARN for your projects not only means you’re working with high-quality yarn that’s a joy to crochet with, but you’re also adding an unexpected, glowing twist to your creations. Whether you're making a blanket for yourself or as a gift, this yarn ensures your project will be both beautiful and unique.

I hope this guide inspires you to pick up your crochet hook and start creating. Remember, crochet is not just about the end product; it's about the joy of the process, the therapeutic rhythm of the hook and yarn, and the satisfaction of creating something by hand. Happy crocheting!
