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.
