This textured lapghan looks really nice in these colors. I also do not see the reversible aspect, but it definitely does look like a great combination of stitches. What stitches do you enjoy putting together for afghans? I have a book somewhere of crochet stitches. I think it would be great to make a sample afghan with a bunch of different stitches.

When I used to work with dementia patients, offering any sort of appropriate stimulation was always welcomed. Textured objects were among the best ways to do this and these lap blankets would be perfect. Project Linus is named after that famous Charlie Brown character and his security blanket. Our local group also makes blankets for seniors as well as children.

I don't see the reversible aspect of this lapghan. Sure it is a neat combination of single, doubles, and triple (treble) crochets, along with the puff or popcorn. I like the way that looks. Every once in a while, I try designing my own combo of stitches with an afghan, but mine do not ever come out looking as nice!

I love the idea of this smaller lapghans for seniors in wheel chairs. The Crocheted Textured Reversible Lap Blanket is a pattern I'll be making. This pattern is very well written and a easy to follow. This would be a good way to use up the half balls of yarn I have been saving. Color and textures are a good way to stimulate the mind. This could even be used for the babies. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

I love making textured lapghans for the seniors. I have found that while sitting with these textured lapghans the seniors will slide their hands back and forth over it and they find a soft texture to be soothing. It's almost like petting a dog or cat. This simple action can be beneficial to them. This pattern has a few textures and I like that the simple rows of single crochet done in the back loops can be worked in ombre colored yarn as well as solid so I can use up odd skeins let from other projects too. Thank you for sharing this pattern.

I feel this would be a great gift for my daughters. One for each.

I have made quite a few lapghans for a local church group which gives them to seniors in the area. One thing I have noticed when I see the seniors with them is the they seem to enjoy the ones with texture like this. They are constantly rubbing their hands softly over it and this seems to be a soothing reaction which can benefit their health. I spoke to the therapists about it and they feel the same as I do. This lapghan is also lovely to look at and it can help a person realize someone cares.

This information is so helpful. I've been looking around at the patterns, trying to decide what pattern to use first. I love making afghans, and have decided to start making lapghans for the senior center, here in my small town. Your tips are so helpful and I appreciate you taking the time to share. Thank you!
