The crochet blanket is more fashionable than ever. And much of this popularity is due to the Scandinavian style that, among other things, preaches a warm, cozy and inviting decor.
However, here in USA, crochet blankets have always had a reserved space, whether on the bed, on the sofa or in the baby’s bag. It turns out that the European influence ended up inflating the prices of this craft so common around here.
And with that, it’s not uncommon to see crochet blankets out there costing your eyes. Nowadays it is possible to find small blankets being sold for prices that reach around US$ 174,51.
But you, as a good Brazilian, don’t need to pay a small fortune to have a crochet blanket keeping you warm on the couch. Of course not! You can make your own crochet blanket. As? In today’s post you will find out.
We’ve brought you a selection of the best tutorials available on the internet, plus, of course, wonderful inspirations to get you motivated. Let’s start?
Types of crochet blanket
Before going to the step by step, let’s start by clarifying the different types of crochet blankets and their main uses.
Crochet blanket for bed
A very common way to use the crochet blanket is to cover the bed. You can do this in two ways: with just a strip at the base of the bed or by stretching the blanket completely. At bedtime, just throw the blanket over and warm up.
For this type of use, the ideal thing is that you choose a blanket the appropriate size for your bed, that is, a single bed asks for a blanket of smaller measures, while a double bed asks for a large crochet blanket, capable of to take care of covering the bed and covering two people.
Also check if the color of the blanket harmonizes with your decor and the style of your room, so everything looks more beautiful.
Crochet blanket for sofa
The crochet blanket for sofa is a great trick for those who want to preserve the fabric of the sofa or hide small defects, such as a stain or a tear.
The blanket can still guarantee that extra comfort when you throw yourself on the couch for a read or to watch a movie. If you don’t want to keep the blanket stretched out on the sofa all the time, provide a hamper and put the blanket there whenever it’s not in use.
When choosing the blanket, take into account the style and color palette of your room.
Baby crochet blanket
Every baby deserves a crochet blanket. They are soft, warm and beautiful. Here, it is only worth taking care to choose a quality wool, anti-allergic and that does not cause irritation to the baby’s sensitive skin.
Another tip is to bet on neutral and light tones, giving preference to the same color palette used in the bedroom.
Patchwork crochet blanket
The patchwork crochet blanket is the one made with small squares joined one by one to form the blanket in the desired size. We can say that this is one of the most popular and well-known models in USA and, of course, your grandmother’s house should have one.
Maxi crochet blanket
Unlike the previous model, the maxi crochet blanket is a direct influence of gringo craftsmanship in our craft. This type of blanket became popular here with the European decoration trend, especially Scandinavian and hygge, two styles that prioritize comfort, welcoming and well-being.
How to crochet blanket
Finally ready to get your hands on the needles? Then write down all the materials you need to start making your crochet blanket:
