Crochet Block Blanket (Free Tutorial)

Whether you’ve never done a blanket before or you’ve done so many you’re looking for a new challenge, there’s one blanket you need to try: the 3-D block blanket. It’s a fun project whether you’re an artsy person, a math whiz, or both. With just three colors, a crochet hook, a tapestry needle and a pair of scissors, you can make your own unique, interesting blanket to show off your skills. When you cozy up in your cuddly new blanket, you can be proud of your new ability.

The video tutorial is available on YouTube in both English and Spanish (there are two different videos so make sure you pick the right one for you), walking you through each step clearly and concisely. The pattern calls for three colors (the original uses navy, light blue and white but you can mix it up and use primary colors, pastel colors, or an ombre effect if you’d prefer) and there are a variety of yarns you can use for this project, but make sure it isn’t scratchy.

Feel a hankering to try this 3-D blanket for yourself? You can do so by watching the Crochet Diamond Blanket Tutorial with Lanas Y Ovillos on YouTube – the video tutorial is only thirteen minutes long, and once you’ve mastered that, you can find other patterns on the channel for a myriad of crochet projects. Be sure and subscribe so that you never miss a video – they release new videos every Tuesday. There are plenty of projects to suit everyone, including clothes, amigurumi, kitchen accessories, and household items.

Here’s a gallery of what this looks like when you’re working on it and when its done.

    My family loves birds. My grandma and grandpa live in the hills between North and South Carolina, and when I call I always ask my grandparents what birds have been around. They usually have chickadees, wrens, cardinals, and tufted titmouses (which happen to be my favorite). My dad loves hummingbirds and has several feeders on […]

    I’ve been looking for a new wallet for months. My old wallet is a particular favorite, picked up at Target because it was a small, blue pleather item with a black French Bulldog on it with red glasses and a bowtie. After a few years, however, the pleather is wearing off and the design is […]

    PVC is one of those materials that, like duct tape, that can be used for so many more things than the original intended purpose. I’ve seen PVC used for everything from cosplay to birdhouses. PVC is a strong material, easy to work with, and a hardy product that can withstand plenty of hard knocks and […]

    It’s difficult to find the right big bag — you don’t want anything too bulky, but you also don’t want a bag that’s flimsy – after all, you’re going to be carrying groceries, library books, craft projects, snacks, and the necessities and you need something you can depend on, that won’t snap or tear or […]

    Try These Knee Highs On For Size (free crochet pattern)

    by on December 8, 2017 - 0 Comments

    I always get really excited when I find knee highs. There’s something about long socks that makes me feel fancier — and they keep you warmer, especially if they’re under jeans. Cold jeans are the worst. It has been more difficult to find thick, comfy knee highs of late, but I discovered the other day […]
