If you enjoy mindless crochet patterns, then you will enjoy this crochet striped blanket. The color changes can be a bit annoying, but overall it’s a very relaxing and mindless pattern to work on. It is easy to adjust in size, making this the perfect crochet blanket to brighten up any room in the house.
You can use any yarn and hook size that you like. I used Red Heart Comfort yarn, which is an economic yarn. It is not my favorite yarn to work with, but it comes out nicely in the wash, and therefore, I do prefer the yarn for afghans and blankets.
