Fast Crochet Stitches for Blankets

Perfect Blanket to sit by the fire. Create this soft and snuggly crochet throw to cuddling up with every evening. Double crochet stitches are one of the fastest stitches for crocheting a blanket.

The double crochet stitch is easy and a basic stitch to learn. It does use a a bit of yarn. The crochet stitch is tall so the blanket will work up quickly.

The double crochet stitch lets even beginner’s make a beautiful blanket. This stitch is gorgeous when paired with great yarn combination choices. It helps the yarn really shine.

In this case, the yarn choice was for a gender neutral family blanket.

No Chain Double Crochet Stitch

Take a close look at the top row and bottom row, you will notice how similar they look. This is achieved by using a NO Chain Double Crochet Stitch to start this pattern.

Here is a video to help you see how the no chain double crochet is completed. This part of the pattern is also detailed in the video further down that includes the stitches used in the repeating rows too.

Crochet Pattern Directions:

Row 1:

Begin with the Chocolate color yarn. Complete 161 of the No Chain Double Crochet stitch. (this special stitch completes the foundational chain stitch row, and a double crochet row) Video further down if you need it.

Row 2:

CH 3, SK 1, HDC. [CH 1, SK 1, HDC].  Repeat the stitches between the [ ] through to the last ST. Complete a HDC in the last ST.

Row 3:

CH 4. (this equals the end DC plus a CH1). In the first CH 1 SP, DC. [CH 1, SK 1, DC in the next CH 1 SP]. Repeat the stitches between the [ ] through to the last CH 1 SP. CH 1, SK 1 ST, end with DC in top ST of the last HDC of the previous row.

Row 4:

CH 2. HDC in the previous row CH 4 SP (which was the first DC plus a CH 1). CH 1, SK 1. [HDC, CH 1, SK 1] repeat the stitches between the [ ] through to the second to the last ST. Complete a HDC in the last ST.

Change Color at Row 5 – Color Row Detail Follows

Rows 5-124:

Repeat Rows 3 and 4.

Row 125:

End with the chocolate and a SC in each ST.


Pull the yarn through the last loop. Weave in the yarn ends and remove the excess.

This helps the ending row look very similar to the beginning row using the chocolate yarn. I think that this gives the throw a nice finished look.

This is a wonderful baby blanket too.
