Creating Your own Crochet Blanket Design

step 1

 Find a piece of graph paper.

step 2

 Fill in boxes to create a design. 

step 3

consider each box 5-double crochet's across and five upwards.  So one row of boxes would be about 2 inches high by 2 inches wide. 

This should measure about 2 inches in width

step 4

Now decide how large or small you would like your blanket to be?

If 5 double crochet is 2 inches in width.

Example: 75 inches wide would be 15 boxes across the graph paper

84 inches long would be 17 boxes up graph (starting at first row)

This would be length of say a twin bed.

Mark out section with marker and design away.

******Unless your experienced enough for massive color changes in one row. I would suggest to try and reduce the number of times in each row for changing colors*******(I learned the hard way)

pattern suggestions

 I would suggest using a basic double crochet stitch on very first row,  using a front post back post stitch would be good, basket weave stitch or whatever suits your fancy.
