I love a good, solid textured crochet blanket just like this Boardwalk Blanket crochet pattern!
The Boardwalk Blanket crochet pattern is an easy crochet pattern to work featuring a continuous stitch pattern. The stitch pattern featured in this blanket is a slight variation on the 3D Shell Stitch. The 3D look is created by front post single crochet stitches that cause the shell stitches to push backward. It is really pretty!
The weight of this blanket is wonderful, it’s not too heavy, but it is also not too light making it nice and cozy to curl up on the couch with while reading a good book or crocheting and enjoying a hot beverage. The blanket has already found it way onto one of our favourite reading chairs!
This crochet blanket is worked using a worsted weight yarn. I have chosen a self stripping yarn called Caron Cinnamon Swirl Cakes. There is about 400 yards in each cake of yarn and to work the blanket to the dimensions below you will need about 10 cakes. Along with the yarn you will need a 5 mm (H/8) crochet hook.
This Boardwalk Blanket crochet pattern will be written out in full below and it is free to follow here on Rich Textures Crochet. If you would like to purchase an ad free PDF and add this pattern to your library, you may purchase one through my Etsy and Ravelry shops linked below:
