Baby, It’s (Getting) Cold Outside! Let’s Snuggle Under Crochet Blankets!
The leaves are changing and the temperatures are dropping: what better time to give or receive a crochet blanket? Since your friends and family know that you crochet, you will not likely receive any handmade crochet blankets. So, make one for yourself! If you’re looking for a blanket, afghan, or throw project here is a list of 8 crochet patterns that would be perfect for you or someone on your crochet gift calendar.
Crochet Blankets to Make & Gift
Is there someone in your life who could use a few “ohm” moments? If so, make this throw to remind them to relax and take life as it comes.
Strawberries and lace are classic crochet elements, and both appear in this lovely throw. Originally worked in a worsted bamboo/wool blend, try a wool/acrylic blend for a crochet throw that will give washable warmth.
Made from a combination of mesh + woven chains, this bulky-weight wonder pairs perfectly with a variegated yarn. The fringe adds a special pizzazz at the ends.
Worked in join-as-you-go squares, this throw is perfect for any plant lover. The edging you add to the vine-inspired motifs will make a throw perfect for a picnic.
Cables and jumbo yarn make a great pair. Work up this afghan for some quick cold weather warmth!
No list of crochet warmers would be complete without a Tunisian option or two. Stitched to look like a traditional Log Cabin quilt, the Tunisian stitches will add an extra layer of warmth against the chill.
Mitered squares are the perfect base for any type of edging. If you’d rather not hunt (crochet) sharks, perhaps try shells or fans instead.
This chevron inspired throw is sure to soothe whoever uses it to cuddle, snuggle or otherwise relax. Choose colors to suit the décor of the recipient for a perfect couch-topper.
