This half double crochet blanket is such an easy crochet blanket, so if you are just learning how to crochet, This is a great beginner project! If you are a more experienced crocheter this would be an excellent project to keep your crojo while watching listening to Netflix, an audio book, or while the family watches a movie or sports on TV. Crochet along with us!

Woven In Time Sofa Blanket

I really really wanted to call this one the “Weave Me Alone” sofa blanket (bahaha!), but because this blanket makes me think of my Grandma’s handmade quilts – the ones with little yarn tufts peeking out at specific intervals – and because we are crocheting this together as a crochet along, I decided on “Woven in Time”. I love the nostalgic vibe! ♥

My goal for this CAL is to use up worsted weight yarn. This could be scraps left over from other, long-ago projects, or it could be that you’re just trying to use up some of your stash. This sofa blanket would be PERFECT for a stash buster blanket! Of course, you could use two (or three or four!) solid colors as I have.

My favorite part? This blanket CAL requires ZERO SEWING! You would think it does, but it, in fact, does not.

Head on over to Ravelry and add this pattern to your favorites. Now that the crochet along has finished, you can purchase the complete, ad-free, printable file there as well. In the printable file, which you can find here, I break down the patterns for each part of each size individually for you, like this:

If you are using the free pattern here on the blog, your finished blanket will be just the same, only you will need to pay attention to 1.) how many of each strip is listed for your desired size below, and 2.) the stitch counts of each strip. Insert those numbers into the patterns you’ll find in part one and part two respectively. The row counts remain the same on all sizes of this pattern.  If you need help reading a crochet pattern, make sure you head over here and check out this detailed post.

This sofa blanket will be perfect for cuddling up on the couch to watch a movie, or as a wedding gift, etc! When finished with the CAL, I will share other sizes of the pattern with you so that you may make different sizes including a baby blanket, full size, or even a king size blanket!

Crochet-Along Dates:

I am giving everyone two weeks to complete each portion. Since there are 9 pieces in part one and 11 pieces in part two, I didn’t want to give you more pieces than there are days in which to complete them. This is supposed to be fun, not a race! 😀

Part ONE will be published on Friday, February 15th – see part ONE here.

Part TWO will be published on Friday, March 1st – see part TWO here.

Part THREE will be published on Friday, March 15th – see part THREE here.

You may begin posting your final reveals in the Heart Hook Home Crochet Community as soon as you are finished, with a CAL closing date of March 29th.

There will not be a video tutorial for this CAL because it really is extremely easy. I will, however, be discussing each portion during my live videos on the Heart Hook Home Facebook page.

Of course, this sofa blanket pattern will remain on Heart Hook Home indefinitely, and for free, so you can join in at any time, or work straight through after we have finished the Crochet-Along. Follow along on the Heart Hook Home Facebook page for updates and to be alerted when new parts are released.

I can not WAIT to share each part with you, and to see everyone’s progress as we work together!

  1. Thank you for this wonderful pattern. I'm sure I will make it again. Instructions were clear and it all worked great! Wish I could share the picture.
  2. SOS -911- Please help me! I finished the strips and I have one extra of color B when it’s all laid out (sofa blanket size). I bought yarn that was the same weight and size according to their labels, but my husband pointed out that one is noticeably thicker than the other. Is there a way to work this together without redoing all of the color A strips so they are longer?
  3. I am in the process of making this blanket, sofa size. I am actually on step 3, putting it together. I was concerned about working on it, especially since it is on the floor so I have to bend over to do anything. I used a trick that I did on another blanket I had to put together, I used stitch markers to put the pieces in place. I started with just the stitch markers around the edges, marking each 13 stitch group, but after it moved and putting it back took time, I added stitch markers into each of the places where a tuft would go. I used two markers at each tuft location in an X pattern similar to the start of the tuft. I have been able to move the blanket around a little more. The stitch markers are small; small enough that they provide stability, but not tight so there is still the ability to pull on the strips to line them up while doing the border.
    1. Great minds think alike! This is exactly how I thought of doing the assembly! I just cannot sit on the floor! ‍♀️‍♀️‍♀️‍♀️
  4. Good morning! Are these blankets standard sizes? I also wanted to tell you how much I admire your work. When looking for a pattern, I come to see you first. Thank you so much for sharing your talents! Not just about crocheting but about finances and recipes too. I lost my husband in Oct of 2019, and you are such an inspiration to me. I wanted you to know that. Have a blessed day my new friend, Mae
    1. Hello Mae! Yes, they are based on standard blanket sizes. Thank you for your sweet words...I am so glad you have enjoyed my site and content...and my condolences on the loss of your husband. Hugs to you!
  5. What is the length and width of each size strip supposed to be for the sofa blanket. What are the measurements for the completed sofa blanket?
  6. Unless I have missed them, I don't see instructions for the border . Can you please add border instructions to the pattern. Thank you
    1. Hi Edith! The border is in the Part 3 section of the CAL which can be found here: https://hearthookhome.com/woven-in-time-sofa-blanket-crochet-along-part-three/
        1. Scroll up and click on the link for part 3 Part THREE will be published on Friday, March 15th – see part THREE here.
  7. Hi.... I've looked at all the difference Instructions regarding the Woven in time blanket, and I can't find anything that shows what the measurements are for each of the different blankets. I was wondering if you could tell me the sizes .... thank you so much
  8. Ashley, I'm a newcomer and I'm picking up my crochet needle once again after many years and I just came across this pattern of yours today and I'm excited however I don't see your March 15th posting for the assembling of this blanket. Can you please point me to it thank you Nancy
    1. Hi Nancy! Part 3 can be found here: https://hearthookhome.com/woven-in-time-sofa-blanket-crochet-along-part-three/
  9. Thank you so very much for the beautiful pattern as well as ALL sizes! Very generous of you Ashlea! Your instructions are always so easy to understand. Thank you!
  10. I can’t find the instructions anywhere for other sizes in this blanket. Am currently trying to finish this one, but would love to make a baby blanket. Thanks, and you do awesome work.
  11. I'm really late on getting started but I was wondering how many stitches I would need to make this a fit a queen size bed?
  12. Could you please give me a rough size estimate on the size of strips, I am so wanting to make this blanket but I'm using the double crochet stitch instead because I couldn't get the hang of the other stich. thanks
  13. I just found this pattern on Pinterest. I'm really confused though. You only give instructions for two rows, but the strips look wider than that. What am I missing?
        1. Hello from Indonesia. I'm more of a scarf or shawl person instead of a blanket, so I kindly ask for your permission to try making this blanket pattern into a scarf or a shawl. Thank you for posting this
      1. I feel like an idiot. I just went back and looked at the part 1 instructions and I see where it says for rows 2-12. I can't believe I missed it! I guess I just got soooo excited that I didn't ready it close enough. I'm so silly!
  14. Ok everyone, every time I look at this pattern I get a different answer in my mind. Are the 9 strips the Terra-cotta or the gray?
      1. I am laying out the first strips and just did one grey. I lay it out on the bed and can not figure out how they go together when the grey is so much shorter. Please let me know before I spend all the time Thanks Becky
  15. Ashley, I really feel you should post the next part at least a week earlier. This is a really long time between releases! (And I would really love to have it done before I visit my Dad at the end of March)
  16. This caught my eye right off. I’m not sure if I can stay in the time frame. I am my 95:yo mom’s primary caregiver. Sometimes there is a lot of time and other times there is time do sit for very long. But I intend to give it a go
    1. Just an update. I wasn’t sure if I could keep up with the time frame. Well, I have just 2.5 panels left to be ready for step three. My mom is getting excited to,see the finished project. She can no longer do any of these things. Dementia has stolen most,of it and her 95 y.o. F,infers won’t. Co-operate anylonger somshe says she is my advisor. She does that wonderfully, ideas, colors, etc she can still do. This has been a fun project .
  17. Ashley, what if I do not have an area wide enough to spread this out? Are you talking about when it is time to do the border? Do you think the pieces will stay woven to do this in my lap? I really love it. All I would have is a bed and I could not stand up to work on it. Any suggestions??
  18. I see this blanket as being my Aunt's 95th birthday present! I don't usually do Cals but I love this one. Thanks Ashlea.
  19. This is going to be my stress buster lol. I really needed something to focus on and this is perfect. Thank you Ashlea, you are my favorite crochet blogger to follow. Always about family and easy to follow patterns. UR the best!!!
  20. This blanket looks like so much fun and warm and cozy at the same time. I love the border! Done in 3 weeks? Yikes, this is going to be a blast!
  21. Busy crocheting hats for a school musical and hoping I can keep up with time frame of this CAL. I would love to give it a try. I love any thing that looks like a quilt.
  22. With color did you use for A and which color did you use for B in the strips? I'm trying to figure up my yarn totals. Thanks!
  23. So looking forward to doing this Cal. I have wanted to make something for my sofa and chaise since I got them in 2017. Thanks for motivating me. See you on Feb 15
  24. This is so sweet. I love the concept. Kinda partial to the first name of the patternbut grandma would approve of the second more than likely. Ashlea you just get more creative with each and every project. I love watching you grow and mature as a wife, mother, daughter, friend and crocheter.
  25. This is amazing..can't wait!! My most favorite thing to make are blankets and cardigans..yes to this CAL..so excited
