The first thing I had to decide was what type of yarn to use to make the blanket. So, off to the store.

At the store, I discovered blanket yarn. Oh, my goodness, it is a super bulky and soft yarn. This cozy chenille-style yarn would be incredibly warm and was exactly the product I wanted to make a comfy blanket for the guest room.

Designing a pattern was the next step. I wanted a simple pattern that would work up quickly while I relaxed, crocheted and watched my favorite television shows. After working with the yarn and making a few samples design swatches, I decided on a half double crochet stitch. By crocheting only in the back loop, the pattern had a gorgeous textural element.

The free pattern below is for a double-size bed blanket. You can make this blanket in different sizes, from an easy baby blanket to a king-size bed blanket, just by increasing or decreasing the number of foundation chains.
