Are you looking for the perfect crochet blanket pattern?

This is one of those relaxing patterns that is easy to crochet with gorgeous results.

Red Heart Ombre Yarn

The colors of this ombre yarn are long. Therefore, this yarn lends itself to crocheting a large blanket like this one. I just love the hues of changing colors without the hassle of having to weave in tons of yarn ends. This was a very nice yarn to work with.

Study in Crochet Texture

This crochet pattern uses double crochet to achieve this beautiful textured look. Repeat rows 2-16 throughout. However, due to the turning at the end of each row, some of the row directions are slightly different. That way, the texture will stay on the correct side of the afghan. If you are new to any of the stitches; front loop and back loop double crochet, front post and back post double crochet, no worries.

Crochet Video Tutorials to Help

There are video tutorials to help you along the way. Just enjoy the long rows, varied stitches, and blending of colors. I have posted those at the bottom.

Large Crochet Afghan

This blanket is large enough to let you snuggle right in; covering your toes with enough extra to hug your neck. A nice size blanket like this lets you nestle in and get cozy while you are relaxing.

Printing This Crochet Pattern is Recommended

There are 136 rows of crochet stitches plus the edging. Therefore, this pattern lends itself well to printing off the directions and marking off the rows as you complete them. This will help keep the pattern fun, relaxing, and stress free. Marking the rows allows you to complete a row or two each evening while watching television. Pick up right where you left off.

Blanket Size

The size of this blanket with the border is 53 inches wide by 74 inches long. However, it is easy to change the size of this blanket. Just increase or decrease the rows and the first no chain double crochet row by 1 stitch. This would be a lovely baby blanket too.

Gauge

Four double crochet to 1 square inch.

Materials

Size I crochet Hook

7 Skeins of Red Heart Ombre Yarn Anthracite. Approximately 3,374 yards. I started a fresh skein for the border and did not use it all; so just a bit less than the full 7 skeins of yarn. If you are not able to find this yarn locally, you can find it here.

Pattern Notes

This is kind of a 16-row repeat. However, because I wanted the texture to show up on one side of the blanket, I had to swap the BLDC, and FLDC sometimes. That is detailed in the instructions below.

At the end of each row, turn.

  1. I am making this blanket. Since I crochet a little looser than other people the width is wider than the pattern calls for. I was too far into the pattern to rip it out and start over. I am going to make it longer so which 16 rows should I add on? Should I start over from the beginning till I get the right length?

    1. So glad to hear you were inspired to make this lovely blanket. Once you work the blanket for a few rows, you will get the hang of making the textured stitches on one side. However, If I added on another 16 rows, I would follow rows 17-32. I believe that this will keep the texture on the one side of the blanket just like the other rows you worked.
