The Dude crochet blanket is simple, durable, and not too frilly, just like most guys like things.
This is one of those projects that is mindless and easy to work on when watching TV or chatting with friends. You and the special “dude” in your life will love it!
This crochet blanket is great for guys and girls alike! Don’t let the name fool you!
The Dude Blanket can be made in any color combination you like or make it solid! You can also change the size of the blanket by working in multiples of 2+1
I designed the Dude Hat and Scarf set to begin and knew I wanted to create a Dude collection of patterns. A blanket was something I knew that I wanted in the collection!
This blanket started out as a design for the collection, but my oldest son ended up taking claim of it and still uses it every day! He absolutely loves it!
I decided on the three colors, because what is more “dude” that some pretty blues?! I love this combination!
All of these yarns are great acrylic yarns that are soft and can be machine washed and dried. I love to find an easy yarn for blankets and such that I gift, so the recipient doesn’t have to put a lot of thought into the care of the gift.
The pattern is rated Easy in pattern difficulty. It uses a combo of half double crochet stitches for the entire project. The pattern is worked in rows with a very simple repeat. You can create the color changes however you prefer, or just make it in one solid color.
