Beginner’s Pattern For One Of The Easiest Afghans.
This is one of the most simple and easy patterns for learning to crochet. The end product is really nice (especially when using variegated yarn), super soft and chunky. It can be made to any size without a major reconstruction of the pattern. This is definitely one of the best patterns for a beginner.

There’s still a nip in the air at this is the time of year, so it’s a perfect time to grab a cozy blanket and cuddle up on the couch with a good book. I was getting a bit bored of always making baby hats so I decided I needed a new project. When my daughter Noelle saw me looking at blanket ideas she begged me to make her a blanket. I knew Noelle would really enjoy and appreciate a blanket that I made just for her. So I formulated a plan and took Noelle to the store to pick out some yarn. She picked out this fun and colorful yarn by Bernat that’s super chunky and has great colors. I also picked up a size P/11.5mm crochet hook and went to town on my newest project.
This blanket was inspired by Melanie Ham’s “Easy Beginner Crochet Baby Blanket Tutorial” on YouTube. It’s the same basic crochet pattern but I’ve changed the size and added some detailing. Her original baby blanket pattern can be found here. I highly recommend Melanie’s video tutorial – its fabulous, especially for beginners.
This blanket is super easy and crochet’s up really quickly. I’m not a fast crocheter and it took me a little less than a week to finish it off. Noelle loved the finished blanket and uses it all the time now. It’s great because its cozy without being too warm. Noelle tends to get hot quickly so the loose weave in this blanket is perfect for her. My finished blanket is 44″ x 55″.
