I don’t make a lot of crochet blanket patterns, as I know most people are like me, here for the garment action. This drunken granny stitch crochet blanket pattern may change your mind though.
Don’t just think of it as a crochet blanket pattern. This same drunken granny stitch crochet blanket could be made into countless other useful crochet projects.
With some minor adjustments, it could me a crochet table runner, a place mat, a baby blanket, it’s really up to your imagination.
If you need a break from making size adjustments to your crochet garment projects, rest your weary head with this one.
I used a #6 super bulky yarn for this blanket, and it went really fast. It also makes for a super cozy blanket. You could use the same pattern with whatever yarn you have, you just have to use your imagination.
Hint: smaller yarn is great for decorative wall hangers and place matts, while heavier weight yarn is good for blankets of various sizes depending on the weight etc.

Measurements: I’m embarrassed to say, but I didn’t write down the finished measurements or the gauge for this pattern before I got on a plane to Thailand, where I’m finishing it. The good news is, it’s a blanket so it isn’t really crucial. Phew!
I’m estimating my finished blanket at about 50″x70″ but you don’t have to stick to any particular finished size, you can easily make it larger or smaller.
