Crochet Plaid Blanket
Learn how to do a crochet plaid blanket / afghan. The trick to the plaid is getting the right amount of rows in place so the the vertical stripes have the right affect. If you rush changing the rows too quickly, you will miss the affect. I know this from first hand experience.
The yarn used in this tutorial is Caron United Yarn. If you need to switch to Bernat Super Value. You can substitute easily. Here is the list for the substitution if using Bernat Super Value. I have looked at the colour of Bernat Super Value and came up with close comparisons and given the name of the colour as a substitution.
- Berry – 3 Balls
- White – 2 Balls
- Lush (light green) – 2 Balls
- Forest Green – 2 Balls
- Dark Grey – 1 Ball
The yarn colours names or shades are not the same between the brands, you will need to look at Bernat Super Value and get colours that are close. Of course, if you prefer to have something in different colours, you are the artist, you can decide what is right for you.
In the video tutorial, I hold up two help sheets that I made for myself. Below are my help notes.
