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.

Can I use red heart super saver yarn?
You sure can. 🙂 Michael
Thanks! I love all your lessons. You are a very good teacher!
You’re welcome. Happy hook’n Teresa! 😀
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.
Why is this called a weighted lapghan?
It’s using two strands at the same time to double the weight of the blanket.
Mikey, is there a “formula” for determining how much more yarn we would need if we make it wider?
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.
No problem; thank you!! 🙂
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.
Morning Betty, use both yarns at the same time so it marls up. Here’s a video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rH8gvcY9nVk
