11 Crochet Blanket Patterns To Start Today

Summer is on its way and that means picnics and day trips to the beach! Make sure you've always got a blanket on hand for those moments when you need something comfy to sit on, or an added layer of warmth once the sun goes down. Crocheting a blanket is a fun project that you can pick up and put down. Plus, if you're working in squares you can always have a ball of yarn and hook in your handbag to work a few stitches on your lunch break or when you have a few moments to yourself. Take a look at our selection of crochet blanket patterns, they're all free to download and a true celebration of cosiness and colour!

For beginners

This sweet blanket is the perfect size for a pushchair or pram, or as a cosy lap blanket for adults. This pattern is a good introduction to filet crochet; a traditional technique that involves creating a square mesh structure and then filling in some of them in to create a pattern. The blanket uses only three simple stitches so is a great project if you’re just getting to grips with your hook. Get the free pattern HERE
