Ribbon Candy Crochet Blanket Tutorial – Beginner friendly

Thank you so much for sharing!

Hi Everyone!  I am super happy to share a new project with you! This is the Ribbon Candy Crochet Blanket Tutorial, and I’ve got all the details for you.  See below for the written instructions featuring 2 sizes, throw and doll.

I love bringing you projects that you can adjust and modify – this is a a great one for that. I used blanket yarn in holiday colors for the throw size, but if blanket yarn isn’t your jam, that’s ok! You can use any yarn you like, in the doll size I used a self striping yarn so I didn’t have to worry about changing colors and to give you another idea of how it looks. You may need to do a little guesstimating, but you can really make it your own.

Love your patterns! I’m sure it’s me but this one and the shell blanket pulled to the right so the blanket looked like it was on the diagonal and not straight. Is my tension too high? I used the same weight yarn as you on the shell and that same yarn on this ripple blanket. Again LOVE all your crochet patterns and all work up beautifully. I must be doing something wrong.

This is such a great idea. I can't wait to start these for my family gifts for next year's Christmas. Can you please tell us what exact yarn you used - brand, color, weight? As always, I so enjoy your work and ideas. You are a treasure. .

Yes I have the same question. It would be so helpful to know the weight and total yardage required. Thank you!!
