Easy beginner single crochet blanket

 This blanket is baby size but can be made for adult as well, it is a beginner friendly as it consists of single crochet stitch and half double crochet.

So each section has alternatively 10 rows of single crochet then followed by 10 rows of half double crochet and the same is repeated to obtain a total of 70 rows.

I have used 100./. cotton yarn and one big ball, the link is below about 600 yards and a 9 mm crochet hook, one size bigger then the recommended one in the label.

The blanket is light weight and is ideal for summer, cover the babies without too much heat.

for an adult blanket you might need around 3 yarn skeins of the same.


ch: chain
st: stitch
sl st: slip stitch
sc: single crochet
hdc: half double crochet

Written Pattern
