How long does it take to crochet a blanket?
The short answer to this question is that it depends on the person crocheting the blanket. We all crochet at different speeds and lots of different factors are at play when you’re crocheting. Here are some things that affect the amount of time it takes to crochet a blanket:
- Yarn: The different weights and sizes of yarn can have a huge effect on how long your crochet blanket will take. If you have DK weight yarn, your blanket will definitely take a lot longer to crochet because the size of your yarn is thinner. If you have a bulky weight yarn, your crochet blanket will work up a lot faster.
- Hook size: Like yarn, hook size matters a lot in the speed at which you crochet. If you have a small hook and light-weight yarn, your blanket is going to take a bit of time. If you have a large hook and extra bulky weight yarn, your blanket will go a lot faster.
- Difficulty of Pattern: Are you making an easy pattern? Are you making a pattern with lots of different stitches? These are questions to consider before starting your blanket pattern. If the pattern has lots of different stitches or a lot of seaming, it might take you some time to finish a blanket. If your blanket pattern is simple and includes a one-row repeat, it might go a lot faster.
- Speed: Speed is another factor in determining how long it will take to crochet a blanket. If you’re an experienced crocheter and have made several blankets, you’ll probably work up a blanket fast. If you’re a new crocheter, it might take you a little bit longer to make a blanket.
So these are all things to consider when determining how long it will take to crochet a blanket. These answers are based on my own experience as a crocheter. But remember, crochet is not about how fast you can make something, so enjoy the process and have fun!
How many chains do you need to crochet a blanket?
This all depends on the size of your crochet blanket. If you want to make a bigger crochet blanket, you are going to start off with a long chain. If you want to make a smaller blanket, you’re going to start with a shorter chain.
One way I like to see how many stitches I need for a blanket is by making a swatch of the stitch used in the pattern. I then count how many stitches I have in 1″ inch and I multiply that number with how long I want my blanket size to be.
Make sure to note if there is a multiple for the stitch used in the pattern.
