Crochet Crunch Stitch Blanket Pattern

Crochet Crunch Stitch Blanket

This was my holiday project that I started because I was just absolutely busting to see what this stitch would look like in a blanket! My Crochet Crunch Stitch Blanket Pattern is a lot easier to make than what it looks. The crunch stitch is a combo of a half double crochet stitch and a slip stitch, so if you know how to crochet those two then you will be fine.

The written instructions below can be used for smaller items also like a face washer, baby rug, scarf, etc.

Materials Required

I’ve used 3 colored balls of medium worsted weight (category 4) yarn so far but you can use however many colored balls of yarn you like or use just 1. It’s up to you. I’ll be adding more colors to mine as I get through each ball of yarn.

The 3 yarn colors pictured above are:

bottom color: Red Heart Super Saver – buff

middle color: Red Heart Fiesta – coffee

top color: Red Heart Super Saver – warm brown

6.0mm crochet hook

yarn needle

craft scissors

Skill Level

Easy

Measurements

My blanket is 79 inches/200cm wide which is for a Queen size bed. It will be the same for the length.

Stitches & Terms

This pattern is using U.S. stitches and terms. To convert stitches go to my Crochet Stitch Conversion Chart.

ch = chain

hdc = half double crochet

hk = hook

sl st = slip stitch

st/s = stitch/es

Written Instructions

Notes: I have continued to work with each ball of yarn until it runs out; I haven’t counted any particular amount of rows for each ball of yarn. You can count an even amount of rows for each ball of yarn you add to the blanket if you wish to for an even effect.

Ch 242. (or any even amount of ch sts for smaller or bigger projects)

Row 1: sl st into 3rd ch from hk, hdc into next ch, * sl st into next ch, hdc into next ch, rep from * across to the end, turn.

Row 2: ch 2, * sl st into hdc, hdc into sl st, rep from * across to the end, turn.

Repeat Row 2 for all following rows.

Finish off.

Weave in yarn tails with a yarn needle.

All the best,
