Camel Stitch Easy Crochet Blanket
Who doesn't love the feeling of curling up with a cup of coffee or tea during a chilly morning? Add a book and this beautiful camel stitch throw blanket to complete the scene, and you will be all set! This lovely, on-color crochet blanket pattern is intricate and sophisticated. While some people might love to add big and bright pops of color to their home decor, this charming and minimalistic pattern allows you to keep it simple and elegant.
Learning this easy crochet stitch will allow you to give your blanket an interesting ribbed appearance to add to the soft, welcoming color of the white yarn. Using bulky yarn instead of a heavier type also prevents an overpowering weight, so it is the perfect throw to keep close during the cool season.

Tips for Making One-Color Crochet Patterns
Adding a wide array of colors to your crochet can be fun, but a one-color pattern can be just as impactful. It can be easier sometimes, too! There are a few things to keep in mind, however, when you start these projects.
- Have Enough Yarn - It might surprise you how many skeins of yarn you need to make crochet blanket patterns in just one color! Two or three color patterns alternate while one hued projects do not.
- Buy All Your Yarn at Once! - Batches of yarn can differ in the slightest even if they are technically the same color. Be sure to buy your skeins for minimalistic projects from the same batch. This will ensure a uniform look.
- Choose Wisely - We love this all-white, pristine pattern so very much. If you're a kid-free home with neat and tidy occupants, it will look stunning. If you've got pets or little ones running around, however, consider working up single color crochet patterns in darker shades that hide stains. This is a good idea if you're messy, too. No one wants to spend hours working up a pattern only to spill coffee or tea on it during your first cuddle up session.

Several times over the years I did attempt to learn how to knit. I just can not get the stitches right. So I have decided to stay true to crochet. When I run across a pattern that resembles knit, I jump right on it. I really like this camel stitch blanket and I appreciate the free pattern.

My cousin that lives in Maryland took on the knitting and I think really is good at it. I keep telling her we need to get togehter and teach each other what we know. I am the one in the family that crochets. I wonder if I could fool her by making this and telling her I have been practicing? I am guessing only someone that really knits would be able to tell the difference.

This is very nice and very easy to follow. I remember learning thus stitch long ago but it wasn't called the camel stitch. When I went to the designers site to get the directions I found a few other things that I really liked. The little cactus plants in pots is adorable. Thank you!

Oooh, another beautiful, must-make blanket! The knit look is lovely too. I prefer crocheting to knitting but sometimes as knitted look works well on a piece and, for my own taste, this is a really good example of that. It also looks so cozy, warm and very stylish too and with winter approaching here in the southern part of Africa it is going to come in very handy.

A very classy and sophisticated crochet blanket! How beautiful and simplistic the ribbed stitch has created in this finished project. It will make a stunning gift for a housewarming. I have not used the camel stitch before, but there is a link on the hosting website that shows it in pictures. It is easy!

Can I use any size hook for this project?
Jan 18, 2017
You should probably stick with the recommended hook size. You can get away with a little bit of variance, but if you size up or down too much, you'll get a very different result. Too large a hook will result in a very loosely stitched blanket, but too small is going to end up giving you really tight stitches that are hard to pull the yarn through. The pattern says 10mm, so that's ideal, but 9mm or 11mm would probably also work!

This is a beautifully interesting stitch but one I haven't learned yet. I guess by the time I got done with this blanket I would know it well. There is also something simply appealing about the single color. It also seems this weight would work well when it'll be used by a family with varying internal thermostats!

I love the look of this Camel Stitch Easy Crochet Blanket! The camel stitch is a easy to do stitch as long as you are not a tight crocheter. I see that this blanket calls for 17 skeins of yarn, wow that is a lot of yarn. I think it would be cheaper for me if I use a pound yarn from lion brand, sure it won't be as heafty as the bulky yarn, but it would still work out. Saving this pattern for a project for this winter. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.
