Crochet TV Blanket
I was inspired by Erin, a designer for Yarnspirations in the concept of mixing two yarns at the same time to create a plaid look. I wondered, what would Bernat Blanket Ombre look like in this concept. This is my latest Crochet TV Blanket. A great blanket to get cozy with while watching tv.
I have done the Moss Stitch / Granite Stitch before but I have never carried the used yarn across the top of the stitch to lock it into place. Erin taught me this concept and showed me that the edges look far superior and the colour play options are endless.

Using 2 Separate Balls Same Time
Each ball stays within its own vertical stripe. You can see the mauve colour carried onward while the other ball turned from light pink to dusty pink. This is helping to create a plaid appearance.
This blanket can be used for the TV room or even an extra blanket for a guest bed or footer for a bed.
Some people may have issues with the self-striping not lining up but if you prefer this concept, you can always use solid colours of Bernat Blanket and control your colour as well. For myself, I prefer fewer yarn tails and let the yarn do the work.
Comments on “Crochet TV Blanket Pattern + Tutorial”
I am having problems with the width. After I had made several rows I had to frog it all back to the first two rows, because the first two rows were a few inches wider than the rest. What should I do to make sure the width is the same from beginning to end? Thanks so much in advance.
It’s a tension issue. Maybe start off with a smaller hook for the first 2 rows and then switch to the normal hook. Chain edges tend to be wider generally but that’s how you can be more consistent if tension is an issue to this degree. Just change to a smaller hook to start.
I need print versions of patterns. I have Traumatic Brain Injury and I cannot follow videos.
All patterns have a download option using the Link to the Pattern. Most are labelled with a blue button inside the article when a free pattern is available. I wish you the very best.
Mikey and Dan,
Without your tutorials I would probably never have tried any new stitches. In the past 3 years, I have expanded my repertoire of stitches and LOVE to crochet again! Going to try this one next!
for me, it was the study of texture it had so many stitches I had never tried before, it really opened up doors to creativity after that
Hi is there another version of your tutorial? When I try to download it says file corrupt?
Testing. Fixed the link. Not sure why that happened.
This pattern seems to have a problem downloading. Tried 2 different computers. I know you were looking at possible link problems.
I reloaded the address, hopefully it works for you now
Thank you for this awesome pattern! I made this for my daughter and she absolutely loves it ? my husband tends to steel it too! I’m new to the crochet world, but I have learned with all of your wonderful tutorials! Thank you!!
Is there a tutorial on how to carry the yarn? I can’t imagine how it’s done.
There is now yes. See our latest videos on YouTube. I filmed it earlier this week.
Unless there is some missing there aren’t any chain 1 in the first 2 rows. The set up row says to make stitches on the charger 1 space. What am I missing?
Yes, the Granite stitch has tension. So it increases by 1. Good eye.
This technique sounds facinating will you be making a video tutorial for it? Thank you for your time
Taken care of earlier this week.:)
I did my Moss/Granite Stitch with 3 cakes starting at different points of color. The rows were counted 1-2-3-4-5-6 but the yarns were rotated between 1-2-3, 1-2-3. I can post a pic if you tell me where.
I love the look of this blanket. I love the color choice and I love love love ❤️ ? self striping yarn. I think this meets all my self imposed requirements (to keep yarn addiction under control), I’l definitely be making this blanket in the not too distant future. Thank you for sharing ?
