Crocheting is one of the oldest arts around, and for good reason: it’s incredibly versatile. From blankets and throws to afghans and scarves, there are so many ways to use crochet to cozy up your home. If you’re brand new to crochet, this Basic Granny Blanket Crochet tutorial is a great place to start. It’s comprehensive and will teach you the basics of crocheting in a step-by-step format. Once you have the basics down, you can branch out and create all sorts of unique items!
Granny Blanket crochet is a super easy and simple crochet pattern that is perfect for beginner crocheters. It’s also a great project to work on while watching TV or in your spare time. The basic granny blanket crochet pattern consists of multiple rounds of single crochet (sc), working into the back loops only. As you get more comfortable with this basic crochet pattern, you can try adding different stitches, such as half double crochet (hdc) or triple stitch (tr). If you want to make your granny blanket even more cozy and warm, you can add some fleece or wool to the fabric.
Starting with a basic granny square, this crochet square design is quick and easy to make. With just a few simple stitches, you can create a cozy blanket that will keep you warm on chilly days.
To begin, chain the desired number of stitches (in this example, Chain 3). Slip stitch into the first chain to form a loop. Work 3 more single crochet stitches into the loop. Do not turn your work.
Ch 2 and work 3 dc into the next stitch. *Skip 2 stitches and work 1 dc into the next stitch. Rep from * until you reach the end of the row. Change to BLO after completing this row.
Row 2: Ch 2, work 1 dc into each of the first two stitches, then *work 1 dc into each of the next 3 stitches. Rep from * until you reach the end of the row. Change to BLO after completing this row.
Row 3: Ch 2, work 1 dc into each of the first two stitches, then *work 1 dc through both loops on the ch-2 sp (counts as one st) in between those two sts. Rep from * until you reach the end of the row. Change to BLO after completing this row
If you’re looking for a crochet project that will keep you occupied for hours, try making a basic granny blanket. This versatile piece can be made in any size or shape, and it’s perfect for using up scraps of fabric.
To begin, determine the dimensions of your desired blanket using the following instructions. Start by crocheting a chain equal to the desired width of your blanket, plus an additional three chains ( six total). Then join the chain with a slip stitch and continue crocheting.
When you reach the end of your chain, turn your work so that the newly created loop is facing towards you. Crochet 2 single crochet stitches into this loop (these stitches will form one corner), then turn your work back around so that the newly created loop is facing the opposite direction. Crochet 3 single crochet stitches into this second loop (these stitches will form another corner), then turn your work back around so that the newly created loop is facing towards you again.
Continue crocheting in this manner until you reach the end of your yarn; do not join anything at this point. Now begins weaving in all of the ends – start by loosely tying one end off to one of the corners created earlier, then tie off each remaining end in a similar fashion. Once all of the ends have been tied off, cut away any excess yarn and enjoy your finished granny blanket!
