One of my favourite things about crocheting Christmas gifts for family is that I can use those gifts as opportunities to design new, fun projects.  When making my gift list for this year I really wanted to make my grandmother a blanket.  She loves maroon and has a lot of maroon in her home decor.  So the colours were pretty easy to pick.  They normally wouldn’t be colours I would choose myself but I am so glad that I used them.  I fell in love with the burgundy and whipped cream combo!  Now that I have finished my Striped Thicket Stitch Blanket, I want one for myself! Keep reading to learn how to make this easy crochet blanket for yourself or someone you love.

Bernat Blanket is my go-to yarn for soft, cozy blankets that work up super quick.   The Bernat Blanket Whipped Cream in this texture actually kind of looks like real whipped cream which just makes me happy…and a little hungry but I promise I didn’t consume any of the yarn. Well…not on purpose anyway!

This blanket is a lapghan/baby blanket size and is easy a good blanket for beginners.  If you  know how to chain, single crochet and double crochet, you can make this blanket.  It is so simple but has a beautiful texture.

If you’d like to use the thicket stitch for another project or practice it before using it for your blanket, find my thicket stitch tutorial here.

  1. thank you for the pattern! love it…BUT i’m confused. Row 3 : *skip the next CH, (SC, DC) in the next CH*
    there are no chains on row 2?

  2. Hi Ashley! Beautiful pattern! My question is about the Whipped Cream yarn which I LOVE so very much and just made another blanket using it and want to make more. However, it seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth…I can’t find it anywhere!? Can you point me to where I might be able to purchase more? THANK YOU! 🙂

    • Hi Wendy,

      I believe it is a Michaels exclusive colour as I have not been able to find it elsewhere. I sure hope they haven’t discontinued it – it’s one of my faves! I’m sorry that I couldn’t be much more help.

  3. I love this stitch thank you! I used it to make my first blanket and I wonder if the stitches should be tighter or looser. Is this a generally tight or loose stitch? It’s beautiful either way but I’m not sure how it’s intended.

    • Hi Roxy,
      I’m not sure exactly what you mean by loose or tight stitch. Do you mean is it a more open stitch (i.e. lacy) or a closed stitch (ie. no holes) perhaps? This is a relatively closed stitch but when crocheted to the gauge given, you get a beautiful, drapey fabric. If you crochet your stitches too tightly, you can get a more stiff fabric. If you’re encountering a stiff fabric, I recommend going up a hook size or two.
      I hope this helps.
