How to Crochet a Big, Soft Blanket

Essentials You Will Need

Do you need a new blanket for winter? The website will teach you how to crochet a big, soft blanket that will keep you warm all season! The best part is that this project is beginner-friendly – even if you have never crocheted before, you can do this! We will provide step-by-step instructions and video tutorials to help you along the way. So get ready to snuggle up with a brand new blanket!

The first thing you need to do is gather your supplies. For this project, you will need:

-Yarn in the color of your choice (we recommend a bulky weight yarn for a cozy blanket)

-A crochet hook that is appropriate for the yarn you have chosen


-Tape measure or ruler


Now that you have everything you need, let’s get started! The first step is to make a slip knot. This will create a loop on your hook, which is where we will start crocheting our blanket. To make a slip knot, take a tail of yarn and hold it in your left hand. Then, make a loop with the yarn around your crochet hook. Next, insert the hook into the loop of yarn and pull the yarn through the loop. Now you should have one loop on your hook – this is your slip knot!

The next step is to chain stitch. This will create the foundation of our blanket. To do this, simply wrap the yarn around your hook and then pull it through the loop on your hook. This will create a new loop – continue doing this until you have reached the desired length for your blanket. For a throw blanket, we recommend chaining about 80 stitches. Once you have reached the right length, cut the yarn and tie off the end.

Now it’s time to start crocheting our blanket! We will be using a basic stitch called a single crochet. To do this, insert your hook into the second stitch from the hook. Then, yarn over and pull up a loop (see photo 3). You should now have two loops on your hook. Next, yarn over and pull the yarn through both loops on your hook (see photo 4). Congratulations – you have just made your first single crochet stitch! Continue making single crochet stitches across the row until you reach the end. When you get to the last stitch, simply make one more single crochet in that stitch and then turn your work.
