There are several different ways to knit:
- in one piece
- of square motifs,
- of triangular motifs,
- stripes and zigzags
- from the center, etc.
We knit with a single fabric - this is the longest and most difficult way in our opinion. An adult bedspread is knitted in a large size, for example 1.5 * 2 m, or even more. At first, it will not be false to move from place to place with such knitting, but the more it gets, the more difficult it is to take work with you on the road. And if you need to knit from different balls? In addition to the product, you will have to wear a large supply of threads. So knitting with a single fabric is acceptable if you do not plan to knit outside the house.
How much easier to knit motifs. Usually the motive for the bedspread does not exceed 10-20 cm in length / width. It is convenient to take such work with you and knit on the road, in the clinic, in the subway, while you are expecting a child from the section and on a walk. But the motto of the knitter is to knit every free minute of time. In addition, residues from different glomeruli can be used.
The benefits of knitting from the motifs are obvious. Although there are a couple of small but significant drawbacks - the threads will have to be constantly cut off and eventually sew the motifs into a single fabric.
As you can see, there is no perfect knitting method for bedspreads.
Look for the patterns you like, buy threads for them and knit the largest and most beautiful bedspread. It will decorate your home, and for you it will become a symbol of labor and patience, because not everyone is able to crochet such a big thing - a bedspread!

Crochet a plaid with patterns and description
There are a lot of varieties of crocheted plaids, as well as the knitting styles of these warming bedspreads. Even the simplest patterns on plaids look interesting, and are necessarily associated with the stepfather's home, warmth and care.
But you will not surprise experienced needlewomen with simple patterns; interesting lace patterns, incredible complexity and beauty of patchwork style rugs, thin and delicate bedspreads for newborns, which are so interesting to puff, are thought up for them. In this type of needlework there is work for any interest and request. But let's start learning from the basics - the simplest patterns and crochet patterns for knitting blankets.
Master class for beginners
In any business, you need to start somewhere to learn. And to learn how to crochet a plaid - a master class for beginners is perfect. Such a plaid, completely made in the style of "grandmother's square", will delight both adults and children. Consider how it is knitted using the example of a step-by-step instruction.
- Yarn (in this case, bright green, yellow and brown),
Abbreviations for the knitting pattern:
- VP- air loop,
- Sc- single crochet,
- CCH- double crochet,
- SS - connecting column.
Progress with step by step photos:
Knit need to start with the main color of the plaid. We close six loops in the ring, then make three VPs and knit two more CCHs into the ring. We make two VIs (photo 1). After that, we crochet three CCHs in a ring and make two VPs. We repeat two more times, as a result of which the square is tied (photo 2).
After that, we make three VPs (this is the first CCH) and in the corner in the arch we perform three CCHs, two VPs and three CCHs again (photo 1). We will knit this in the remaining arches. We finish the last one with two CCH and SS (remember that the first column at the very beginning was knitted in the form of three VPs) (photo 2).
We knit a new row of squares and make three VP from the arch in which we have the hook. In it we also knit two CCH. Next, go to the corner. And we knit in it all the same that was knitted in the previous row: three CCHs, two VPs and three CCHs (photo 1). In the next arch, we knit just three CCHs. And so in a circle (photo 2).
In the corners you will always need to knit the same thing. And in the arches that are on the sides of the square, we always knit just three CCHs. As a result it turns out the so-called grandmother’s square. We knit several rows for the desired size of the plaid. And, completing grandma’s square, we will change the thread color to yellow (photo 1). We knit two rows in yellow. And another row in green. And then we make the binding of the edges. In one arch, we will knit seven CCHs, in another one RLS. And so we alternate the harness throughout the plaid (photo 2). Finish tying in green. We will make three VPs and knit one sc in each stitch (photo 3).
To decorate this simple, but without a doubt cute plaid, you can crochet a small decorative element, for example, a butterfly. This is how it can be created:
- We knit five VP and lock in a ring. Next, we knit three VP and one more CCH. We make two VIs. And two more CCHs. In total, we need to knit like that eight times. That is, we get sixteen CCHs.
- We pass to the arch from the VP. SS We knit three VP and here we also perform two SSN. We carry out three EPs and under the same chain we knit three CCHs. So we knit under all the arches from the VP.
- Now attach the brown yarn. Under the chain of VP we knit six CCH. We make one VP and here we carry out six more CCHs. We skip the bottom three CCHs and knit the RLS.
- And in the next chain we knit everything the same as we knitted before.
- We tie our butterfly with yellow yarn. We knit one RLS in six underlying stitches and one RLS under the VP. We make a picot of three VP. And so we tie the whole butterfly.
- Fold it in half and fix the chain of brown VP. Now it can be sewn to one of the corners of the finished blanket.
In this video, the author will tell you in detail how to connect a motif for a plaid, how to combine motifs into a single canvas.
To knit a plaid, we need:
- simple and cheap yarn of different colors,
- hook number 3,
- desire to knit!
Also, from the motives, you can knit a light blanket, seats on stools and much more.

How to connect a children's plaid with a simple pattern
Very often, people resort to knitting only to create a crocheted children's plaid with an original pattern for their baby.

And this is a completely feasible task, because making a crocheted plaid as a result will definitely result in an interesting and beautiful product, even if made with the most uncomplicated pattern - for example, with relief columns.
- 8 skeins of 50 g of wool mixture or white synthetic yarn of white color (A),
- 8 skeins of 50 g of wool mixture or volumetric synthetic yarn of blue color (B),
- hook number 3.5.
Knitting density: 20 loops x 11 rows = 10 x 10 cm (embossed posts).
Size: 75 x 100 cm.
The embossed column crochets like this: make a crochet, insert the hook (front to back) under the column (leg) of the previous row, stretch the loop, grab the thread and stretch it through the first 2 loops on the hook. Again, grab the thread and stretch through the remaining 2 loops.
Work progress and knitting pattern
We knit a white yarn in the initial chain of 145 VP.
Base range: 1 CCH in 3 VP from the hook, 1 CCH in each VP to the end, 144 loops knitted. 1st row: 2 VP for lifting, * relief. Art. around the loop of the previous row, CCH in the CCH of the previous row, repeat from * to the last loop, 1 relief. Art. around the loop of the previous row.
Next, we knit according to the scheme of 7 rows. Cut the thread (A). With a thread (B) we knit 8 rows according to the pattern. Cut the thread (B). Next, knit 8 rows of thread (A) according to the pattern. Repeat the stripes until 96 cm are crocheted.
To tie the edge of the finished product, use the color thread (B).
1st-4th rows (wrong side): 1 VP, RLS to the end of the row. In the corners of the finished product, knit 3 sc in the sc in the previous row.
Then, knit 1 row with the “step of the dog” (RLS is knitted from left to right, and not from right to left) around the entire outer edge of the product.
Finish knitting PBN (semi-crochet) in the 1st PRS. Fasten the thread.
Crochet workshop for a square bedspread on a sofa
I knitted a sample of the yarn that I found at home. But she is a little rude. I advise you to take a finer yarn for bedspreads, which include acrylic. For example, Turkish Alize, then yarn consumption will be more economical.
According to my calculations, about 2.5 kg of yarn may be required approximately, maybe a little less or a little more.
