Crochet Lush Life Afghan

Learn how to crochet a Lush Life Afghan using one of the most popular yarns today, Bernat Blanket Yarn.

This blanket plays with the concept of simply crocheting double crochets and front post trebles (fptr). The FPTR’s are easy to manage and create the luscious textures and ultra-softness, in this already super plush yarn. It’s like hugging a cloud.

Cuddle up on the couch or put on the chick flick and cry into a bowl of popcorn. This blanket is fabulous. The video tutorial below is available to show you the steps. It’s really easy. I would even guess beginners could master this one.

    Love this blanket and brilliant instructions I worked a moss stitch border on mine as I am not great at keeping straight side edges but thrilled with the end result. I have a photo but can’t find how to upload it here

      We have the Stitch Social if you want to share photographs. Here’s a link for it.

    Hi Mikey – I have watched and rewatched this video as well as your others and still cannot see how you change colors. Are you crocheting individual squares and then joining or how? The foundation chain I imagine is one color and then what. I appreciate all that you can offer/suggest.

    1. Mikey says:

      It’s just changing the colours, but not blocks or individual squares. After the said amount of rows, you simply change the colour. The picture gives the illusion of being blocks but it’s not.

    2. gary says:

      Ahhh. That makes sense if I look closer. Question – could one do blocks and then join ( if so what stich might you use) or would this ruin the integrity of the blanket and or is just too difficult/time consuming.

    Hi! I received my kit today and it contains 6 balls of color A and 6 balls of color B. The pattern that came with the yarn says this is for a 52” X 60” Afghan and says you need 6 balls of each. But your tutorial talks to 3 balls of each, not 6. Can you help me to understand?
    Thanks so much!

    1. Marina King says:

      The tutorial was likely done in a smaller size than what the patterns calls for.

    2. Margaret Villaverde says:

      I want to do the bigger one and don’t know how many more skeins I will need of each color. I want to do the bigger one as your video explains. How much bigger will it be?

      1. Marina King says:

        We can’t honestly answer how many more balls you would need, not everyone’s tension is the same mine is much tighter than Mikey’s so we wouldn’t necessarily use the same amount of yarn for the same project, I would suggest using one ball to do the one stripe and see how far that takes you, from there you should be able to gauge how many more you might need.

    Hi Mikey –

    I LOVE this Lush Life Blanket so much! I am new to knitting (not a crocheter). I bought all the yarn already thinking this was a knitting pattern – oops! Would you happen to have this in a knitting pattern? I am so excited to get started on this. Best Wishes.

    Thank you so much.

  6. Tina Hill says:

    Hi Mikey , As usual another one of your wonderful tutorials ! Thank you , I am wondering if this needs a border? and i was wondering if i could start with single crochet foundation row , then a row of double crochet and then final row would be a single crochet row across. Thank you so much.

    1. Mikey says:

      I don’t think it does but if you feel like it should, follow your heart. 😀

    Hi Mikey,

    I want to make the Lush Life blanket with Bernat Blanket. I already have the 6 skeins that I need. I started to follow the pattern with a chain of 67. I continued with row 2 of dc (using size N hook). When I measured, it was only approx 35 inches wide. Do I just need to make the starting chain MUCH looser? What am I doing wrong? I’d appreciate any advice.

    1. Mikey says:

      You could increase your hook to a P or 12 mm… Sounds like you are tight crocheter. I find with the Bernat Blanket I am tight and I usually increase my hook size to compensate that. Try that.

  8. Magda says:

    This was my first attempt to crochet anything and it was a great experience. The tutorial was great and easy to follow. 6 balls of yarn later I am just now wondering how to finish it. Is there something special that needs to be done to ensure that it doesn’t come undone? Please advise. I don’t want my work to go to waste. Thank you again.

    1. Mikey says:

      Weave in the ends going back and forth three times. You can see how it is done here.

  9. Diane Staffa says:

    Could you please send a link of how to change color? You didn’t show how to do the blanket shown and the written doesn’t tell either.

    1. Mikey says:

      Here’s a link to show you how we change colours.

  10. Diane says:

    When changing color how many front post with new color across to make it even out? I see that wasn’t mentioned

  11. Ruth Garcia says:

    Hello Mikey,
    I think the link for getting the pattern is broken again. Link doesn’t light up when you click on it, actually it does absolutely nothing. Link to tutorial works. Thanks

    1. Mikey says:

      I cannot duplicate results. Seems to be working on this end. Can you recheck?

    2. Denise says:

      I too am having the same problem. What I found that worked is where it says
      Learn how to crochet a Lush Life Afghan. The Lush Life Afghan is in bold red color. Click on that and it will take you to the pattern to download.

      1. Marina King says:

        I added a blue button to make it easier to find, hope this helps

  12. Magda Brown says:

    Hello there,
    Just wondering if there is a similar tutorial to this one that goes a bit slower. This will be my first project ever. Thanks

  13. Renee says:

    Hi Mikey, The link for this pattern is broken 🙂

  14. Susan Stringer says:

    Hi Mikey…when I click on the “get pattern” for the above Lush Life Afghan, it takes me to a page that says “invalid URL” Hope this helps.

    1. Mikey says:

      It’s fixed. Thanks.

    1. I love this pattern, but am having problems finding the written pattern. I am also disappointed that the video did not show how to do the two tone aphgan that is pictured.

  16. You are Bang On, Mickey! And know appropriate that the first Crochet Crowd afghan is called Crochet Lush Life Afghan. I will be making this one soon and will try to make it in to a Prayer Shawl. Prayers for you and yours.
