Simple Striped Crochet Blanket
Check out this simple striped crochet blanket. This is an easy, cozy crochet blanket/throw that is created with the newest crocheter, in mind. A beginner-friendly crochet project that uses one stitch through the entire project.
This blanket is very plush and comfy and honestly, it works up really quickly. Combine a large crochet hook with a thick, bulky yarn and you’ll have a cozy masterpiece in no time.

This project uses approximately 4 skeins of Bernat Blanket Yarn, the larger skeins (300g). Start the blanket and end the blanket with the same yarn color.
I purchased 2 skeins of yarn (the starting rows) in the same color.
This blanket is customizable, for a smaller blanket create a shorter foundation chain and fewer rows.
For a larger blanket, create more stitches in the foundation chain, and more rows.
- CH 70, Color A
Be sure to not pull your yarn too tight around your hook or it will be difficult to work the stitches in the foundation chain.
2. Row 2 – 3rd stitch from hook place HDC in each stitch across, ch 1 TW
3. Row 3-4, HDC in the first stitch, each stitch across, ch 1 TW.
Change Yarn, Color B
4. Row 5-7, HDC in the first stitch, each stitch across, ch 1 TW.
Change Yarn, Color C
5. Row 8-10, HDC in the first stitch, across, ch 1 TW.
Every 3 Rows, change yarn color, alternating between color A, then Color B, then Color C.
6. Row 70 or when the desired length is met, HDC across, fasten off cut yarn.
Weave in all ends.
NOTE: The CH stitch will NOT count as the first stitch in the row. Be sure to complete an HDC in the last turning chain stitch.

Using the Bernat Blanket yarn will allow you to create the coziest blanket. Depending on the time you spend creating your blanket you could have it finished in a few days.
