Crochet Plaid Blanket Pattern Details

The Joy to the World Christmas crochet plaid blanket is a modern blanket made with the single crochet tapestry technique. After designing the I’ll Be Home for Christmas Tapestry throw a couple of years ago I have been itching to make another Christmas themed blanket with plaid details.

This afghan is actually easier than it may look as it uses basic beginner-friendly single crochet stitches throughout.  If you have never done a tapestry crochet project before all you are really doing is changing colors to create the design in single crochet stitches.

I have a couple of complete tutorials to help you if you have never worked this crochet color work technique as well.  

The Tapestry Crochet Tips and Tricks tutorial is a complete photo and video tutorial to help you get started with this fabulous crochet technique.

Yarn bobbins will be your best friend while crocheting this crochet plaid blanket. For the gingham plaid sections of the blanket I would carry the non-working throughout.  For the middle section of the blanket I primarily used bobbins and did not carry the non-working yarn much at all.  I just didn’t like how the black yarn would show through the white sections and the white yarn would show through the lettering.  

Joy to the World Blanket process

That did mean quite a few ends to weave in but if you manage ends as you go this won’t be a huge deal at the end like it was for me.  I would recommend that you not weave in close to where you are in the pattern just in case you have to rip any rows out.  Nothing worse than trying to rip out rows with ends already tucked in!  A good rule of thumb is to begin weaving in ends 5-7 rows below your current row – after ensuring things look right first!

I used Red Heart With Love yarn* for my blanket which is a medium worsted weight yarn.  However, you could certainly substitute with another yarn of your choice.  In fact, using a bulky yarn would be a great way to make this throw larger as well.

Using a medium weight yarn I ended up with an approximate finished size of 33″ width x 40″ tall.  The perfect size for a decorative throw for a couch or bed.  

I decided on a single round of single crochet around the outside edge because I preferred the simple finish.  You could certainly add tassels or pom poms to the corners of the plaid crochet blanket pattern as another option. If you like the idea of a simple finish with a little extra texture you could finish with a round of single crochet crab stitch – a favorite!

Joy to the World Christmas Throw Pattern

Pattern written in US crochet terminology


Red Heart With Love Weight 4 / Medium (100% acrylic, 7 oz / 370 yds) 

  •     White 14 oz / 740 yards (W – White)
  •     Holly Berry 2.75 oz / 150 yards (R – Red)
  •     Black 6.6 oz / 350 yards (B – Black)
  •     Pewter 8.0 oz / 425 yards (G – Grey)

Size K (6.5 mm) crochet hook
Tapestry needle

Approximate finished size:  33” wide x 40” height

Gauge: 16 rows x 14 sc = 4” x 4”


  • ch = chain
  • sc = single crochet
  • st(s) = stitch(es)
  • WS = wrong side
  • RS = right side

Pattern Notes:

  • Graph is worked in single crochet (sc) tapestry crochet technique.  Each pixel of graph corresponds to 1 sc stitch.  
  • At the end of each row, turn and ch 1.  Ch 1 does not count as a stitch.
  • Stitch count will be 115 stitches at the end of each row.
  • Since all sts are sc, the pattern is written telling you which color to use and how many stitches of that color. For Example: “[(B)5, (W)5] eleven times” means you will work with black color for 5 sc sts, then white color for 5 sc sts, and work that pattern 11 times total across the row.
  • Since graph is so large, it has been split into 4 sections.  I printed the four smaller graphs each on 8 1/2” x 11” paper then pieced them together to create 1 large graph to follow.
