Sure, I’d be happy to provide you with a description of a simple crochet blanket pattern using basic stitches. Here’s a classic pattern for a basic crochet blanket using single and double crochet stitches:

Crochet Blanket Pattern: Simple Striped Blanket

Materials Needed:

  • Worsted weight yarn in your choice of colors
  • Crochet hook appropriate for the yarn weight
  • Yarn needle for weaving in ends

Finished Size: You can customize the size of your blanket by adjusting the starting chain and the number of rows. As a starting point, let’s aim for a lap-sized blanket of approximately 40 inches by 60 inches.


Foundation Row:

  1. Start by making a foundation chain with a multiple of 3 stitches plus 2. For example, chain 122 (120 + 2).
  2. In the 4th chain from the hook, work 2 double crochet stitches (dc). Skip 2 chains, then in the next chain, work 1 single crochet (sc) and 2 double crochet stitches. Repeat this pattern (skip 2 chains, 1 sc, 2 dc) across the row. Your last stitch should be 1 sc in the last chain.

Row 1: 3. Chain 3 (this counts as the first double crochet). Turn your work.

  1. In the first single crochet stitch of the previous row, work 2 double crochet stitches. Skip the next 2 stitches, then work 1 sc followed by 2 dc in the next single crochet. Repeat this pattern (skip 2 stitches, 1 sc, 2 dc) across the row. Your last stitch should be 1 sc in the top of the chain-3 from the previous row.

Repeat Row 1: 5. Repeat Row 1 until your blanket reaches your desired length. To create stripes, change yarn colors at the beginning of each row if desired.

Finishing: 6. Fasten off your yarn and weave in any loose ends using a yarn needle.

Feel free to modify this pattern to suit your preferences. You can adjust the size, colors, and even incorporate different stitch patterns to make your blanket unique. Crocheting a blanket can be a relaxing and rewarding project, and this simple striped pattern is a great place to start for both beginners and experienced crocheters. Happy crocheting!
