Crochet Marled Weighted Lapghan

The Crochet Marled Weighted Lapghan is a concept of using two strands at one time. Using Caron Cakes, the marling is addictive and really fun.

I used Caron Cakes, Red Velvet is the colour. One ball you will use from the outside of the ball going inward to the centre. The second ball use the inside of the ball going outward. The yarn tends to cross over in random parts where the colours happen to be the same for a short time frame. That’s what is creating the solid bands of randomness inside this blanket.

What is addictive is not knowing where the solid bands will show up. You can also use two completely different colourways for each ball and you really will have a unique piece.

The multiples are 14 + 2.

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.

    Can I use red heart super saver yarn?

      2. Mikey says:

        You’re welcome. Happy hook’n Teresa! 😀

  2. Nina says:

    Thanks! This is a nice stitch pattern. I may try it for a sweater with one strand of Caron Cakes, which I have in my stash.

  3. Nina says:

    Why is this called a weighted lapghan?

    1. Mikey says:

      It’s using two strands at the same time to double the weight of the blanket.

  4. Diane Dicke says:

    Mikey, is there a “formula” for determining how much more yarn we would need if we make it wider?

    1. Mikey says:

      I sure wish there was. I haven’t been able to come with formulas as people’s tension is all over the place. I am sure mainstream designers have this figured out, me, not so much. I’m sorry.

      1. Diane Dicke says:

        No problem; thank you!! 🙂

  5. Betty says:

    Miley . This is Betty. I want to crochet the weighted blanket. My question is do I carry the second yarn or do I work both yarns in each stitch. If carrying I assume I switch balls at the beginning if each row always carrying the second ball of yarn.

    1. Mikey says:

      Morning Betty, use both yarns at the same time so it marls up. Here’s a video.
