13 Crochet Blanket Patterns for Beginners

By: Christine Weiher, Editor for AllFreeCrochet

When the winter season hits, the first thing I grab for is my crocheted blankets. And when the summer season hits, sadly, the first thing I grab for is my crocheted blankets, but only when the air conditioning is blasting. Do you see a common theme here? I love wrapping myself from head to toe in soft yarns, so when I see crochet blanket patterns for beginners, I jump on them like there's no tomorrow. When I first learned how to crochet a blanket I used worsted weight yarns in three crochet colors and I still use it to this day.
