It’s not very often that I crochet a large, throw sized blanket, but I’m so happy how this one turned out! I used a super soft worsted weight yarn and only 2 colors to make this simple, yet pretty blanket. Scroll on down for the full large crochet blanket pattern.

What Yarn Did I use?

For this free crochet pattern, I chose to use I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby. It’s a super soft, 100% acrylic yarn that works up beautifully. It holds up and washes very well.

Depending on what color scheme you are wanting to use, I Love This Yarn comes in a wide variety of different colors.

To me personally, I Love This Yarn is so much softer than many other acrylic yarns that I have tried. It will produce a cozy blanket that you will want to cuddle up with time and time again.

I used approx. 8 skeins of yarn total, so it’s a pretty big project.

You could even adapt this free pattern and use a bulky weight yarn to make a chunky blanket if you’d like. But, with making a large crochet blanket pattern, it is more affordable to use a worsted weight yarn. Chunkier yarns are usually more expensive and have less yardage.

Really, any yarn weight would work for this stitch though.

About the Striped Wattle Stitch Throw Blanket Design

I wanted a blanket that used simple stitches but didn’t look too simple and beginner. I actually decided on using the Wattle Stitch. It’s quickly becoming one of my favorite stitches!

That along with doing different widths of the stripes really make this blanket pop! All while still being a very easy blanket pattern!

I just wanted to be able to sit on the couch and crochet on it without having to pay too much attention to stitch counts or anything. All I basically had to do was just pay attention to which rows needed a color change.

I think that this color combination went together very well. The contrast between the lighter and darker colors really adds to the blanket.

Even though this is a larger project, it’s easy enough that even beginner crocheters could manage to make it!

The Wattle Stitch

All the wattle stitch consist of is just a few basic crochet stitches. All you need to know is how to chain, single crochet and make double crochet stitches for this blanket. That is really how easy the Wattle Stitch is!

You may be wondering how to make different sizes of this blanket. You can start this blanket with any numbers of chains as long as the starting chain is a multiple of 3.

I do have a video tutorial for the wattle stitch for those of you that are visual learners.

The size of my blanket came out to approx. 50” x 65”. The perfect throw blanket size to have in your living room!

A crocheted afghan is the perfect project to work on while watching tv. I mostly worked on mine later in the evenings and it’s so relaxing. This is one of those crochet projects that is easy and simple to do, yet the end result is so rewarding!

  1. Wow! Beautiful.
    I like to knit but I find it to be harder on the hands then crocheting. Trying to get into crocheting especially when making a throw!
    Thank you for replying to my question a few weeks ago.
    I complained about when I crochet I loose or add stitches.🤦‍♀️
    Have a great day!
