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!
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! My youngest son recently requested one, which is the one in the photos!
This crochet blanket is made with worsted weight (#4) yarn. I used one of my favorite worsted acrylic yarns, Brava Worsted from WeCrochet. My son chose the colors Denim, Tidepool, and Silver for his blanket! I really like how these colors look together!
Brava Sport is 100% premium acrylic and can be machine washed and dried. It is also very soft and comfortable. I love to find an easy yarn for blankets 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.
