About this Pattern


If you’re looking for a blanket that doesn’t take months to complete, you’re in the right place. We use Bernat blanket yarn in our wavelength crochet blanket to not only work up fast but make a blanket your family will love to snuggle with.

With this project you’ll get to practice the wavelength crochet stitch, a reversible stitch that’s a great choice for all sorts of projects. Customize the color palette to your liking. Use only two colors for a more simple look or four colors for some variety.

Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We prepared a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations you’ll need to get started and as well as written instructions to walk you through our wavelength crochet blanket step-by-step.

Additional Notes


Finished Size

58″ wide; 70″ long
(unblocked)

Gauge

9 sts x 6 rows = 4″
(stitch pattern)

The wavelength stitch can be worked in a single color, however, for the design to really pop, we recommend using two colors or more. The instructions indicate where to break one color and join another.

Additional Notes: Chain one at the beginning of indicated rows does not count as a stitch. Chain four at the beginning of indicated rows counts as a treble crochet stitch.
