Single Crochet and Cross Stitch Lapghan
This cozy lapghan crochet pattern is worked up in simple, yet cozy stitches to keep you warm in the cold winter months. Whether you like to cozy up on the couch or need a little extra warmth while working at your desk, this crochet lap blanket is just what you need.
Better yet, the stitch pattern is gender-neutral, which makes it ideal for gifting to everyone on your holiday list.
Finished Crochet Lapghan Size
The finished size is 36 by 48 inches.
It is perfect for those who spend a lot of time in chairs, including those in wheelchairs. The blanket can be tucked under the legs to keep super warm.
The measurements are also the perfect size for toddlers during nap time.
That said, the blanket is super easy to adjust to any size you need from preemie to full-sized blankets for the bed. This crochet size chart for blankets can help to make it easy to adjust the size.
The Stitch Pattern
For this crochet lapghan pattern I chose the single crochet cross stitch worked in between rows of single crochet stitches. The single crochet cross stitch is on the short side, which helps to pull the stitches together, thus creating a solid and cozy fabric.
I worked mine in a solid color, but the stitch pattern makes it super easy to add a few stripes or blocks of color as you like.
I chose Bernat Premium, which is a medium-weight acrylic yarn. Any similar worsted-weight yarn will work just as well.
