Is it just me or is winter the perfect time to cozy up with a good crochet project? This year I have spent more time than usual snuggled up with my projects, as the combination of quarantine and snowy weather has kept me indoors. With the holidays coming up I wanted to create the perfect blanket that would act as a neutral backdrop for my Christmas decor. I tend to change up the colours I decorate with often but wanted this blanket to be something that would fit in with anything over the years.

In my part of the world, we get a brilliant morning sunshine - but it only lasts for a few hours before the sun sets in the late afternoon. For this blanket I was inspired by the gorgeous morning sunshine reflecting off the snowy evergreens. I wanted to keep the colours lighter for most of the blanket with contrasting stripes.

For this project you will need three colours. I used Bernat Softee Chunky in the colours Natural, Grey Heather, and True Grey. These three colours blend so well and give a great plaid effect. This chunky yarn makes for a super cozy blanket to keep warm in our cold Canadian winters. The blankets I make with this yarn are so great for snuggling up in and enjoying a cup of cocoa - or warming up after a fun afternoon outside in the snow.

I found this blanket to be the perfect size to lay as a runner on the end of my bed. I did not add tassels to this design, but it would look amazing should you choose to do that.

 MATERIALS

  • 3 colours of yarn required (A, B, C). I used Bernat Softee Chunky.

    • Colour A – Natural (2 balls, 788m)

    • Colour B – Grey Heather (2 balls, 788m)

    • Colour C – True Grey (1 ball, 394m)

  • Scissors

  • Tapestry needle

  • Crochet hook (10 mm and 8 mm)

FINISHED DIMENSIONS: 48 x 60”

Gauge: 5 in. = 10 sts, 8 rows

STITCHES USED IN THIS PATTERN: 

  • Half Double (HDC), Single Crochet (SC)

 NOTES: 

  • You will be working with 2 colors in each row. You will carry along & crochet over the colour you aren’t working with (sometimes called “tapestry crochet”).

  • To change colours, pull through a loop of the next colour to finish the last half double crochet of the active colour. Give the colour you carried over a small tug first to keep it flat along your row.

  • Keep one colour to the front of your work, and one colour to the back to keep the yarn from twisting.

  • You can find a photo & video tutorial for changing colours in plaid here
