Learning how to crochet a blanket can give you great warmth inside and out. If you know how to crochet or just learning, making blankets can be very beneficial items to craft. Now, if you have never crocheted before, there are a few things you will need and learn before you can craft a blanket well. You will need a yarn that is too your liking. A hook that works with the weight of the yarn, and possible a pattern depending on how fancy you are looking to get. Also remember to have a conferable place to sit with good lighting. Crocheting blankets can become very time consuming, but can be a good stress reliever and rewarding with your finished product.
When you have everything to start crocheting, the first step to making a basic blanket is to start chain stitching the width your want your blanket to be. Next, continue chain stitching back and forth to make the length of your blanket. Finally, continue till your blanket becomes the length you want it to be.
This , of course, will just make a basic singular patterned blanket, but will get you well on your way to developing your own personal style. Once you have the idea, you can start making granny squares to link together for a different designed blanket.
After you learn how to crochet blankets and have a few made, you will have family members at awe when receiving them, the blankets, from you. There is nothing, in my opinion, sweeter than receiving a crafted item rather than something that is store bought as a gift. So if you are looking for that something special to hand out as a gift, think about learning how to crochet a blanket for your next gift giving occasion. Not only will they be pleased with a gift from the heart, but they will have something to stay warm with in the cooler months of the year. So if you do have some free time on your hands after the work day is done, take the time to learn how to crochet a blanket.
