Modern Textured Crochet Blanket
My latest free crochet pattern is an easy modern textured crochet blanket. It’s cozy, oversized, and perfect to wrap yourself up in as summer turns to fall.
The best part about this crochet blanket is that it uses only 2 stitches. So if you love making 2 stitch crochet blanket patterns, I think you’re going to enjoy making this one.
It’s made using a combination of single crochet and double crochet (my two favorites!).
I’ve used these two stitches quite a bit for patterns (here’s an example of the baby-sized version of this pattern). I just love how easy and simple they are to make.
The Perfect Lightweight Crochet Blanket Pattern
Another thing that I love about this crochet blanket pattern is how lightweight it is. I love how you can easily grab it and wrap it around you, without feeling weighed down.
I wanted it to feel like one of those Ikea blankets that are super stretchy, and squishy. So if you like those types of blankets, I think you’re going to love this one!
The Yarn You’ll Use for This Modern Crochet Throw
For this crochet blanket pattern, you’ll need 4 skeins of worsted-weight yarn. I used Lion Brand Re-Spun yarn in the color whipped cream.
This was my first time working with this yarn and I absolutely loved it! This yarn was so easy to crochet with and the stitches came out so beautifully.
The best part about this yarn is that it comes in 12 different colors, blush, and whipped cream being my favorites. It’s also part of Lion Brands sustainability yarn line, so the fiber of this yarn is made from recycled polyester.
As always though, you can substitute this yarn for another one if you prefer to work with a different fiber.
Alright, let’s get started with our crochet blanket pattern!

Do not cut yarn. You’re now finished with the blanket portion of the pattern. Now you will work a border around your blanket. You will be making a single crochet border (check out the step-by-step tutorial of how to make a single crochet border here).
How to Crochet a Border Around Your Blanket
You want to start off by chaining 1 at the top left corner of your blanket, make 2 single crochets in the corner stitch, and then continue by making one single crochet in each stitch along the edge.
Continue to repeat this sequence around the edge of your blanket. Making 2 single crochets in each corner and 1 single crochet in each stitch along the edge of your blanket.
Note – if you find the blanket is curling at the corners, make an extra single crochet or place a chain within your two single crochets.
Once you have finished making your last single crochet stitch, make a slip stitch, and finish off your work.
