In this blog post, I am happy to share with you the All is White blanket, a delightful and free crochet Christmas blanket pattern that will add an extra dose of warmth to your holiday celebrations.
This pattern is designed to be accessible and enjoyable for crocheters of all skill levels, from beginners eager to learn to seasoned crocheters seeking a mindless new project.
Crocheting a Christmas blanket is not only a wonderful way to embrace the festive season but also an opportunity to create a cherished heirloom that can be passed down through generations.
Imagine curling up with a cup of hot cocoa, wrapped in the cozy embrace of a blanket that carries the love and care put into every stitch.
Now, you might be wondering, “Can I really create my own crochet Christmas blanket?” Absolutely! Whether you’re an experienced crocheter or just starting out, this blog post will guide you through the process of creating your very own Christmas crochet blanket.
To bring your crochet Christmas throw to life, I have selected a palette of festive hues that evoke the joyous spirit of the season. Red, green, and white are the classic color choices for Christmas.
This is why I have partnered with Lovecrafts this time, and they were kind enough to provide this beautiful yarn for the All is White Christmas crochet afghan.
When I saw this yarn on Lovecrafts I knew exactly what I wanted to make. The Elf colorway of the Paintbox Chunky Pots was screaming “ I wanna be a blanket!”, to me. True story. 😉
So now, I only had to find something to pair it with. The Paintbox Simply Chunky is the perfect match for the Chunky Pots.
They are both acrylic yarns, of the same weight with the same exact yardage. I would definitely recommend the pairing for more projects and not just this Christmas throw blanket.
This is an easy crochet throw blanket with a simple twist. It only uses the basic stitches like single, double, and half double crochet, but the way you will change the colors is a bit different.
But, no worries. With a photo AND a video tutorial, any beginner will be able to change colors with ease.
It’s a great mindless project and you will love seeing it grow, especially as it will add its warmth during this cold season.
Customize your Christmas crochet blanket
I have decided to add pom poms to my blanket as I believe they are so cheerful and perfect for getting you in the Christmas mood.
You could also add tassels or fringe to your blanket with the same yarn, but be aware, you will miss part of the blanket’s character.
Well, no more waiting. Let’s dive in and create a cherished masterpiece that will bring comfort, joy, and the true spirit of Christmas into your home.

How to change colors in crochet
In order to achieve the specific effect in this crochet Christmas blanket you will have to crochet two rows in the right side of the fabric.
This means, when you finish the last row of color A you will not cut the yarn, and leave a live loop to work on later.
You will then join the new yarn (color B) at the start of the last row you made, on the right side of the blanket. No turning.
Watch this small video or check out the photo tutorial below. It’s really easy once you see it.
And here’s the photo tutorial if you prefer.
Step 1: After you complete the 4th row, remove your hook and enlarge your loop. You may place a locking stitch marker if you want to stop this row from unraveling.
Step 2: Join color B on the right side of your work and hdc until the previous to last stitch.
Step 3: Yo, insert the hook into the last stitch and draw up a loop.
Step 4: Place the live loop of the previous row onto your hook, tighten, and drop your working yarn.
Step 5: Yo and complete your hdc stitch with the new yarn (color A from the previous row).
Step 6: Your last stitch is complete and you have successfully changed your yarn from color B to color A. You may continue as usual.

Adding the pom poms
This is an optional step that will give some playfulness to your blanket. As mentioned, I made 16 poms (8 for the top and 8 for the bottom) to attach in equal distance from each other.
For the Lapghan size, I had about 15 sts in between each pom pom and placed the first and last pom pom, 3 sts from the edge. The weight for each of them was about 12 grams so I used 1 ball of Paintbox Chunky pots.
You can totally add fewer pom poms if you like, or attach some really big ones at each one of the corners.
Wasn’t that super easy to make? I hope you enjoyed making this easy crochet Christmas blanket and you will cherish it for years to come.
