3 Types of Crochet Blankets
When it comes to blankets, there are endless possibilities in terms of design, color, and texture. Here are three popular types of blankets that you should consider making:
Granny square blanket – This type of blanket is made up of small squares that are knitted one by one and then sewn together.
Granny square blankets are usually very colorful, as each square can be a different color or shade.
Ripple Blanket – Ripple blankets have a wavy pattern created by increasing and decreasing the number of stitches in each row.
They can be made with any type of yarn, but variegated yarns (yarns with various colors) usually look especially good in ripple patterns.
Solid-stitch blanket – As the name suggests, this type of blanket is worked using only one stitch throughout the entire project.
The most common solid stitch used for blankets is the single stitch, but half double crochet and double crochet stitches can also be used.
Solid stitch blankets can be made with yarns of any weight and usually work relatively quickly.
