US I-9 / 5.5 mm hook
yarn needle and scissors for finishing
To customize size, chain a multiple of 3 + 2.
I found that this stitch pattern results in nice and neat edges without the need to add a border. If you do prefer to add a border, you can use the simple single crochet edging pattern as I did in the Textured Dishcloth Crochet Pattern.

“I Love This Cotton” in colors: Bright Teal, Ivory, Orangeade, Pewter, Dove (1 skein per 7 hexagons you will crochet + extra in whatever border color you plan to use)
size h hook (5 mm) (I’ve been loving this affordable set)
The Hawthorn Afghan Pattern
About 1600 yards of Size 6 Super Bulky Yarn. I used All Things You Acrylic and Wool Blend in Pewter Light Gray (10 balls), Spearmint Green (4 balls), Clematis Purple (2 balls), Goldenrod (1 ball), and Fleece White (1 ball)
Size N (10.00 mm) Crochet Hook
Crochet Modern Moss Stitch Blanket
For this new version I used Caron One Pound yarn which is great for beginners as it is easier to keep the tension more even and to undo it if you go wrong. I love using moss stitch with this thread because the seams aren’t too punched but the seams still keep the thread loose and give the blanket a really nice cover.
Crochet Modern Hatch Lines Blanket Squares
Finished size approximates 25 x 31 inches
6 skeins of Patons Alpaca Blend in Butternut (click for yarn specifics)
1 skein of Patons Alpaca Blend in Birch

About 1900 yards worsted weight yarn (5 Caron Cakes). Sample used 3 cakes in Pistachio Fudge and 2 cakes in Pistachio. You may wish to buy a 6th skein to use for planned color changes and the border (see notes).
US H8/5mm crochet hook Did you know you can purchase my go-to hooks on Amazon?)
Tapestry needle and scissors
Cluster Panels Crochet Blanket
Skill level: Easy
Create waves with this crochet blanket! Create vertical stripes of different textures using double crochet and single shell stitches. Starting and finishing with a series of single crochets completes the whole thing. Make it in your favorite shade from super soft and soft Bernat blanket yarn.
Celtic Afghan Crochet Pattern
Three classic cable stitch patterns add plenty of character and style to this crochet project. Don’t be afraid of crochet cords, these are really just a matter of sewing after you have crocheted from the front and back.
Daydream Simple Striped Tunisian Crochet Blanket Pattern
This Daydream blanket is a striped Tunisian crochet blanket with an easier color change than its cousin Sunset Stripes Blanket. This makes it a great starter crochet project for anyone new to Tunisian crochet. The blanket uses Tunesian Simple Stitch from head to toe. This stitch is one of the loosest stitches in Tunisian crochet stitches, but you still need to go up a few sizes in your hook to make sure the stitches don’t come out too tight. You want the Tunisian crochet blanket to be nicely covered while you experience that soft, comfortable feeling.
