Today I’m excited to announce my first ever video crochet course! I created an eight part, 23 minute video series on how to create this cozy textured blanket.
The videos come with a free PDF that gives you all the information you need to make this blanket in many sizes, from baby blanket to bedspread.
I designed this blanket to be a quick project with plenty of instant gratification. If you are making the baby size or the throw, you can even make it in a weekend! We use super bulky yarn and a stitch that covers a lot of ground with each row.
In the videos you will learn:
Tools and Materials needed with suggestions for two brands of yarn.
Getting started with how to hold the yarn and hook if you’ve never crocheted before.
How to treble crochet…this fun, easy stitch makes your blanket go super fast.
How to add in a new skein of yarn…easy! I even give ideas if you want to change colors.
Finishing off your blanket.
And creating tassels!
This video series is now available on Skillshare and to help your decision, you can watch the intro here:
I just love how warm and cozy this blanket is since it’s made with Knit Picks Tuff Puff. I have loved Knit Picks ever since I discovered their website about five years ago. I used a lot of their yarn for my business when I crocheted newborn hats and photo props. I have been admiring Tuff Puff for months and spent some time thinking of what would be the perfect project for this yarn. The wool in the yarn gives a lot of warmth to this blanket even with its loose, open stitches. Plus, this yarn is single ply wool, which gives the blanket a unique, on trend texture.
So head on over to Skillshare and sign up! And once you get started, don’t forget to share photos of your blanket and work in progress. We would LOVE to have you join us and see what you create! And feel free to ask questions…I’d be happy to help!
