Great idea: "For this blanket, Jane used double moss stitch and knit five "scarves" that were then sewn into one big blanket." Find a scarf pattern (or two) and then make scarves in to a blanket. More interesting than knitting a whole blanket!
When it comes to easy crochet blanket patterns for fall and winter, nothing screams cozy quite like the Stellar Patchwork Crochet Blanket. While this crochet afghan might look like its granny squares joined together, it& actually crocheted as one.
