“Unique and Easy Crochet Patterns!” – by SEB

These are unique blankets for novice and intermediate crocheters. I think it's a great way to practice your crochet in the round skills.

These blankets would make great gifts too! I've already started working on one of the patterns and have found it easy to follow – with “special stitches” listed right at the top of the pattern so you'll know just what stitches you'll be doing before you begin. Each pattern shows a photo of the completed blanket so you know how it'll look in the end.

Personally, I don't think you can ever have too many crochet pattern books and since this one is FREE it's definitely worth the download. There are also a couple of other free crochet book download links at the end of this book so it's definitely an excellent deal.

2. How many skeins of yarn do you need to crochet a blanket?

To be precise, the exact number of skeins you would use for a crochet blanket depends on the desired size of your creation. For this easy crochet blanket, we used one skein of each color for each color block.

For this easy crochet blanket, we used a simple color block technique: with three colors and two blocks of each color. Consequently, the whole project required 6 skeins of yarn.

6. How long does it take to crochet a blanket?

With Bernat Blanket Yarn and our free crochet pattern, it doesn’t take long to complete this simple and easy crochet blanket. To take the guessing game the equation, we used one skein of chunky Bernat blanket yarn for each color strip of this blanket.

To master this stitch, crochet a sample swatch first. Chain any number. Single crochet into the second chain from the hook and every chain. Chain 1, turn.

Refer to this step-by-step diagram above that helps you to understand the structure and simple steps needed to learn and master this fastest stitch for a blanket.

First, put your hook through the back loop of the top crochet stitch (that looks a V). Grab the yarn with the hook and pull it through one loop only. 2 loops on the hook. 

Secondly, grab yarn again with your crochet hook and pull it through both loops on your hook. 1 loop on the hook.

Continue to the end of the row. Practice this simple stitch until you feel completely comfortable with this fast and easy SINGLE CROCHET BACK LOOP ONLY STITCH.

It is a simple repeat of the same stitch and the same row which makes it the fastest stitch for an easy crochet blanket.  It also makes your crochet blanket reversible.

Now you are ready to crochet this gorgeous blanket! 


Each skein of Bernat Blanket Yarn is 10.5 oz, 300 g; 220 yards / 201 m. You may check Yarnspirations for all currently available colors of Bernat Blanket Yarn.


In color A, chain 110 +1.

Row 1: Sc into the second chain from the hook and into every chain (110 stitches). Ch1.

Row 2: Sc BLO (single crochet into the back loop only) until the end of the row (110 stitches). Ch1.

Row 3-16: Repeat row 2.


Crochet repeating the same stitch (SC BLO) until you almost finish one skein of yarn.

We are using the SIZE 12 mm crochet hook for this project (which is bigger than a recommended crochet hook size (8 mm) for this yarn) to create a chunkier blanket. As you crochet, you’ll be creating lovely textured rows reminiscent of classic Fisherman Knit Stich.

When you finish 16 rows, cut your yarn leaving approximately 16″ tail which you’ll use later to attach a pom-pom.

Row 17: Pull with color B leaving approximately 16″ tail. Ch 1. Turn.  Sc BLO (single crochet into the back loop only) until the end of the row (110 stitches). Ch1.

Row 18-33: Repeat row 2.

Row 34: Pull with color C leaving approximately 16″ tail. Ch 1. Turn.  Sc BLO (single crochet into the back loop only) until the end of the row (110 stitches). Ch1.

Alternate colors until you use all 6 skeins of yarn. You should have several balls of all three colors left which we will use to create pom-poms. 

Step 1

Get familiar with you Pom Pom Maker. It consists of 2 parts connected with a long pin. Each part is identical and has 2 blue semi-circular parts. 

First, align blue parts and start looping yarn while moving from left to right. To make your pom-poms the same size, use the same number of loops for each. 

I’ve looped my yarn 40 times around each pair of the blue double semi-circles (as on the tutorial above), moving from left to right and then from right to left. Cut the yarn. 

Step 2

Repeat exactly the same steps using the second part of the pom-pom maker.

Step 3

Close both sides. Using very sharp scissors, cut through the yarn using the middle grove as your guide (you want the little yarn pieces to be the same size though Pom Pom Maker makes it effortless).

Step 4

The last step in pom-pom making is to secure your new fluffy pom-pom. For that, using a fairly long yarn of the same color, pull it through the blue grooves and make a double knot. Tie the double knot one more time. 

Step 5

Lastly, you can open the blue parts on both sides. Holding you pom-pom maker with both hands, gently pull the white circles apart revealing the connecting metal needle.

Step 6

Check your pom-pom to make sure that all yarn pieces are approximately the same length. If one is sticking out, give it a gentle trim.

Make 8 pom-poms total for this blanket. Your newly-made pom poms are ready to be attached to the finished crochet blanket!

Finishing Touches 

Now you are ready to put some finishing touches on your beautiful blanket. As you have long tails left at the end of each color stripe, you can use them to secure the pom poms. 

Note, all pom-pom will be one side of the blanket. 

Just make a few double knots using different strands of yarn until you feel that your pom-pom is securely attached to the blanket. Lastly, use the tapestry needle to weave-in (hide) the ends and cut off the yarn.

If you have the same long tail end as the color of your pom-pom, you can simply put the tapestry needle through the pom-pom (after securing it with a double knot at the bottom) and cut off the yarn. It will make the tail end blend with the finished pom-pom.

Last step: give your blanket a good shake outside to make sure all little pieces of yarn fly away leaving you with a beautiful new DIY addition to your home decor.

This blanket is perfect for a Coastal, Nautical, and Beach home decor or as a cozy patio throw to complement the blue color scheme.

Can you wash Bernat blanket yarn?

Absolutely! That’s the beauty of this durable chunky yarn – it is washable, so is your finished blanket. Just make sure to use cold water settings and a gentle cycle.
