Crochet Herringbone Blanket Pattern

Crochet Herringbone Blanket Pattern

| Comments 29

The Crochet Herringbone Blanket pattern is an easy repeat once the foundation of the stitching is solidified.

The pattern has the herringbone section completed first and then the Single Crochet bands are crocheted to both ends of the blanket afterwards.

Finally, the trim of the entire blanket and fringe is applied. Of course, if fringe isn’t your thing, you don’t have to add it.

Free tutorial is below.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.

    This was so helpful!! Do you remember what colour you used? I love it ❤️

    1. Mikey says:

      It’s like a seafoam blue but I don’t recall the name. I’m sorry.

    Hey there Crochet Mentor!

    Thank you for another fabulously explained video tutorial! You have a way of explaining the stitches and the “why” of where the hook goes, that NOBODY else comes close to! As a noob to crochet, that has never had the opportunity to ask, “now where?” and “why there?” because I’ve taught myself during a pandemic and know zero people who crochet, you have officially become the gold standard for video tutorials in my book. If I see a nice stitch in a picture, I stalk your Pinterest page to try and find one of YOUR videos to explain it properly! Don’t let anyone tell you “you talk too much”; they are all liars! Send them to me and I’ll have my finger wagging so fast….
    Big hugs and thanks AGAIN!

    1. Mikey says:

      Heya Kerri. Firstly, thanks for your thoughtful response. I am teaching the way my mom taught me. It’s not the issue to stick the hook into a position but it’s best to know why so you can use that knowledge to further yourself. I firmly believe the crocheters aren’t meant to follow 100% but to understand the logic of the concept so they can remember it easier.

      I try not to talk so much and it’s difficult to maintain a speed for everyone. That’s the hardest thing about being in the public like this.

      Enjoy and happy hook’n to you.

    I love this tutorial! You did such a fantastic job explaining this beautiful stitch. I have some Bernat Blanket yarn that I want to use. I have been looking and I don’t see where it is listed how many skeins this will take if done with the 110 starting stitches and done to the correct length. I hate to wing it and hope that I have enough, but that is what I am going to do.

    1. Mikey says:

      Checking the pattern now for you. Stand by.

    2. Mikey says:

      Pattern stated: MATERIALS
      Bernat® Blanket™ (10.5 oz/300 g; 220 yds/201 m)
      Almond (10830) 7 balls or 1425 yds/1303 m
      Size U.S. L/11 (8 mm) crochet hook or size needed to obtain gauge.

    Mikey- your tutorials brought so much joy & peace into my life several years ago. I no longer watch tv- but listen, as I’m always counting my stitches 😬 Crocheting is meditation with a tangible benefit you can gift to anyone! Thank you so much! You’ll never understand how much you have impacted my life & those around me. ❤️ Can hardly wait to get busy on this gorgeous pattern!

    1. Mikey says:

      It’s brought me stability too. It’s saved me more often than I could ever have imagined. I can totally relate. All the very best to you on this lovely day. Michael.

  5. Sharon Pierce says:

    I love this stitch. I have made a sweater and a shawl after I learned this stitch.

  6. Camille says:

    Is using different color of yarn possible with this pattern or will it be ugly?🤔

    1. Mikey says:

      Up to you. Colour is personal and up to your own personal choices. I don’t like yellow but others love it. Do what you think you would love the most.

  7. Allison Ward says:

    Hi! I was glancing at this pattern and a few others here on your channel. I am wondering if you have a pattern that’s fit for a king size bed? Thanks in advance!

    1. Mikey says:

      Not usually but that’s because many afghans have a multiple repeat where you can adjust the sizing, so they make it a throw size knowing we can adjust it. The yarn quantities won’t be known. For myself, I don’t have a king-size here at home, I just know dimensions. You would just need to figure out the multiples for the pattern and make the starting chain big enough for the king-size and also in the same multiple to keep the stitches insyc.

      You’re most welcome. Enjoy your evening.

      1. Faith says:

        thank you for ALL you have done for so many people. What you do is “love them”. Have a great and BLESSED Holiday.

      2. Mikey says:

        Thank you Faith and the very best to you and your family as well. 🙂 I’m working throughout, so I am not on holiday this year. 😀

  9. Cindy Stewart says:

    Michael, is there a way you can change that neon green print to darker non neon color please! I’m older & have 2 eye blinding diseases so those neon & light colors are almost invisible to me! I’d like to be included in being able to read & navigate your blog! Thank you

    1. Mikey says:

      I can yes… Let me work on that now.

      1. Cindy Stewart says:

        Thank you so very much Mikey! I truly appreciate it! <3 🙂

  10. Lulu says:

    Beautiful pattern! But is there a way to see what yarn is needed without downloading the pattern or viewing the tutorial first?

    1. Mikey says:

      Let them think on that. I am trying not to rewrite the pattern on the blog because if the pattern changes, then my article is wrong which compiles into a ton of complaints for inaccuracy. Leave it with me. I have to think about that as the repercussions for any misinforming come at me fast and furious each day. That was requested on YouTube as well for people to know more without having to click the links of the details we have. I am providing more details on YouTube but of course, everything is subject to change without warning.

      1. Lulu says:

        Thanks for replying, Mikey! Don’t know if it would be an issue, but I think if just the yarn weight is provided that would really help.

  11. Lisa says:

    Hi Mikey

    You are fabulous at crocheting and I feel privileged to be a part of your wonderful hobby.

    Kindest regards

    Do you think this would work with Bernat softee chunky?

    1. Mikey says:

      Yep, I was originally going to film with that instead.

      1. Debra Burrell says:

        Thank you! I was going to ask that. So soft chunky for me. And thank you for this pattern it is gorgeous and will be a Christmas/housewarming present.

    Love all you do Mikey
