Tips for Crocheting Christmas Blankets using Squares
Below are a few tips about yarn, care and more that may help you out when you are making your Christmas blanket this year.
Choosing Your Yarn
Before starting any of the projects below, consider your yarn options. Wool or acrylic blends are good for warmth, but if you’re looking for something hypoallergenic, cotton or bamboo could be the way to go. Make sure the yarn colors match the festive theme!
Most of the patterns below will have yarn suggestions, so you can use what they suggest or find a fiber similar in the same yarn weight.
These patterns range from beginner to intermediate, offering something for every skill level. If you’re a newbie, the Holiday granny square blanket is a great starting point.
For those who are more advanced, intricate patterns like the Snowflake Square will be perfect for you.
Don’t be afraid to put your spin on these patterns! Whether it’s adding a border, mixing and matching squares, or even incorporating a personal design, your creativity can make these blankets uniquely yours.
After all the hard work, you’ll want to keep your blanket looking great. Always read the yarn label for care instructions. Most will be machine washable, but some might require a gentle cycle or even hand-washing, so this is something to keep in mind when choosing the yarn you want to use.
