First blanket

So christmas is coming up, and i want to make a gift for my mother. I have a little cristmas tree pillow pattern picked out, and would like to make a blanket with it, and i mean it doesn’t have to match the pillow but i am going for like light rustic colors, so no bright reds and green. I was just wondering what anyone thought the best type of like stitch and type of blanket i should make. Being my first one, i’m not sure. I don’t think i want to do a plain color, so if there could somehow be a christmas tree or something christmasy involved, that would
help! I was looking at the c2c method, but it seems complicated and the color changing to grid a christmas tree seems a little too much for my first time. And again, it doesn’t HAVE to be tree themed but it would be preferred for that. thanks!


I would suggest maybe christmas granny squares!! There are a lot of different ones. Christmas lights, trees, ornaments. You can basically make any granny square color and put different appliques on each one :slight_smile: Theyre quick and easy​:green_heart: Also hayhaycrochet has a christmas tree granny square vest on her website! You could use just the Christmas tree part and keep adding color rounds like a huge granny square! I used her pattern to make me a vest but you dont have to do the “vest part” as its just two grannys sewed together haha


Another idea might be an applique!

I’m working on one right now, I’m making a granny square with the granny spike stitch and just not ending and just keep going and using a thick yarn it’s working up fast! I definitely would consider that as one way. It makes it more of a square so if you’re done with the width and want more of a rectangle blanket I would continue one side :smile::ok_hand:

Learning c2c with a mama gift would be awesome! I like the idea of smaller squares hooked together. Here’s one option. You could do multiple trees, instead of all the others or … lots of options. Crochet Christmas Character Afghan - Repeat Crafter Me
