Easy Plaid Crochet Blanket PATTERN PDF
This listing is for a printable PDF pattern & includes a chart as well as written instructions.
I have been searching for months for the perfect plaid crochet pattern, but never found anything that suited my tastes. Everything I found was typically the gingham or buffalo plaid style, but I wanted a blanket that looked more like a traditional woven plaid. Thus, I worked out this pattern that is incredibly easy to make.
For this project you will need 3 colours of yarn. I used Bernat Softee Chunky yarn which is super bulky (6) and recommends an 8mm crochet hook. I used the colours "Natural", "Grey Heather", and "True Grey". Because I was crocheting over my second colour of yarn (sometimes called "tapestry crochet"), I used a 10mm crochet hook. I used two 394m balls of “Natural” and “True Grey” and four 394m balls of “Grey Heather”. Please note that using two strands of super bulky makes a very thick blanket (perfect for cold Canadian winters), but if you are looking for something that transitions between seasons, I would recommend a lighter weight of yarn.
Materials required for this project:
3 colours of Bernat Softee Chunky yarn required (A, B, C)
Colour A – Natural (2 balls - 788 m)
Colour B – Grey Heather (4 balls - 1576 m)
Colour C – True Grey (2 balls - 788m)
Crochet hook (10 mm and 8 mm)
41 x 72” (plus fringe, with bulky yarn)

All patterns are in English, using US crochet terms. Please don't be shy if you have any questions as I am new to crocheting and even newer to explaining a pattern! I will do my best to answer your queries. I also have created a YouTube video where I talk through the process and design, you can find it here if that would be helpful for you to watch.
This is my first venture into tapestry crochet. It has taken some practice but am finally getting through a row without tangling my yarn. I like the pattern and may do another with worsted weight yarn. Thank you for the pattern.
