This Homey Plaid Crochet Blanket will be the quintessential accent piece for your holiday decorating. We love the touch of plaid in the pattern that doesn't distract too much from its soft texture made from the super bulky Bernat yarn. You can bet that you and your family will love snuggling up under this when the temperature drops. You'll be watching holiday movies or even reading a favorite holiday story and you'll automatically pick up this blanket to curl up with to do those things.

Great colors that works up quick using super chunky and a size M hook. Simple weaving for the vertical stripe. Don't let the reverse single crochet scare you, it is easy once you get the hang of it. There are tutorial videos available to watch. Pick colors to fit your decor, or for the Holidays, or for your favorite TEAM. The possibilities are endless.
