Smashing Ideas for Crocheted Blankets


If ever in life you feel sick and tired of the conventional blankets and want to go for some other option, I guess the crocheted blankets would always be a great remedy that would fetch you the perfectly desired results. And at the same time this is a great inspiration for all the crochet crafters as well. Although these huge projects could certainly be time taking and tiring as well, but once when you are done with them, the bliss and satisfactions would simply be matchless. Here are some smashing ideas for crochet blankets that would just make you happy.


Most of these blankets are made with different skeins and not the regular stuff. You just have to be creative and gutsy enough to try them out as they are going to make a really loud appearance in your room interior and life as well.

This large crocheted blanket reflecting the Bavarian stitch pattern is a massive craft. The color scheme is simply amazing with a blend of different thread shades where light and dark thread shades are mixed together and the final impact is too impressive. Use it on couches or on the beds wherever you just feel like.

I got overwhelmed with donations of skeins of stray colors people no longer wanted or needed. This is the result, using the Bavarian stitch to make the squares. It’s going to be an auction item for a fund raiser. Each square took most of a full skein to make, so about 44 skeins went into making this blanket, which is large enough for a double bed.  Michelle McNeill

Now coming to the next one we find it to be more common and conventional sort of crocheted blanket which is used as the bed spread. So this is another smart use of such crocheted items like this would be far more easy and comfortable blanket or bed spread ever.

And finally in the last one, we see some countless thread shades that could certainly be problematic to sort out. Like this would be a real tough task for the amateur crochet crafters, that’s why most of the inspirations here are supported by the detailed demonstrations to make them really easy for you.

I found a pattern for this blanket on Ravelry and immediately fell in love with it, so I saved it to my favorites and went and bought the yarn needed to make it. So I go to start it last night and it is KNIT! :/ I must have been very tired when I was searching through and looking it over because I never noticed that. (I’m also still pretty new at this.) Anyway, could you all help me figure out how I could crochet something similar? I really love this blanket and the colors and wanted to make it for my daughter for Christmas!  Shawna Maddox

Steelers Blanket I finished last week!  Holly Anne


This blanket I made for my Dad’s 70th birthday, which was 9/30. He really loves it! Hard to tell, but the colors are lime green, grey, and navy blue. I don’t like always going with the traditional rows, and I’m very happy with the way it turned out. No pattern, just started with an ongoing granny square and added some ends.  Sarah Shattuck Gottleber


Thought I’d share a blanket I made for a dear friend, and my Mom’s bestie. She’s had quite an emotional roller coaster year, and my goal was to bring some cheer her way. Goal achieved; she loves it!  Sarah Shattuck Gottleber


My first blanket. It took 11 months, but I took a break from it for a few months. Word to the wise, buy all your yarn at once. The blue ended up being two different colors. I think the first lot was exposed to sun or light for a while and looks faded compared to the 2 nd lot. The star is on both sides. Tedious to see it together but worth the end product. My husband loves it.  Carla Padilla-Glidewell
