    This easy stitch is perfect for an afghan or blanket. It is just sets of 3 stitches, one single crochet and two doubles. Once you get into the hang of it, you can do it in your sleep!

If you've been searching for an easy crochet pattern for baby blankets you should try this one. The directions are so clear. You should feel quite comfortable trying it.

     Decide how wide you want your blanket to be and chain the proper number in multiples of 3. I chained 108 for this blanket and it is about 31 inches wide.

    1. I use this stitch all the time for blankets – never knew the name of it. My MIL had taught me this years ago. Great easy stitch that works up super quick.
