Free Crochet Zig Zag Blanket pattern

Make your own Crochet Zig Zag Blanket

Back in December, I showed you how I plan to decorate my son number 1’s bedroom. We looked at what we had to work with, on his bed was his crochet zig zag blanket. I wanted to share with my crochet readers the pattern. So now you can make one too!

I searched high and low for a zigzag pattern, and I just couldn’t find one that didn’t involve thousands of single crochet (UK doubles)! I wanted a blanket in a couple of months not a life long project(!), so of course this is what led me to write my own. I’ve made ripple blankets before. I knew the basis of what I was trying to create. I just needed to make the ripples a tad steeper.

You can make this Crochet Zig Zag pattern with this FREE pattern

To make your zig zag blanket:

4mm Crochet hook

I used my long time favourite DK Special Stylecraft yarn. I used the colours teal, duck egg, lobellia, mustard, graphite, white, empire, silver and storm blue. It was a big blanket so I used 3 balls of each.

Darning needle for sewing in ends.

    Brilliant! Just the pattern I’ve been looking for, I couldn’t face the long winded double crochet blanket patterns and this is perfect! Thank you!

    How big is the blanket that you made and did you use all of the 9 balls?

      Yes all 9! It would be big enough to drape on a single bed and to lie flat on a double. You can make it any size though 🙂
