Superman Blanket – Free Crochet Pattern

I finally finished my son’s blanket just in time for Christmas. He has always been so excited with his blanket and it was supposed to be a birthday present for him. His birthday was last December 3 and I run out of yarn so I have to order online and I have to wait. It’s my first time making a crochet project this big and I was so happy with the result. Working on the corner to corner crochet was really fun. At first I had trouble figuring the stitch but once you get the hang of it I bet you just don’t want to stop. If you want to make one just follow the written pattern and I also provided the graph below.

Materials Needed:

Red Heart With Love True Blue – 4 skeins (blue)

Red Heart With Love Holly Berry – 2 skeins (red)

Red Heart With Love Daffodil – 1 skein (yellow)

6.50 mm. crochet hook

pair of scissors

yarn needle

Abbreviations: 

ch – chain

sc – single crochet

dc – double chain

sl st – slip stitch

Gauge: 

6 blocks = 5″

Finished Blanket Dimensions:

approximately 50″ x 50 ”

So glad I found an easier pattern to follow and you used the yarn I am going to go buy! I do have a question, did you do a border and if not, how can I make this bigger? My oldest son is 48 inches tall and he wants something longer than what he currently has (an old blanket made by a friend when he was a baby, finally outgrowing it). Thank you so much!!!

Hi I know many people have asked how to make this blanket bigger I was curious also the same thing there was no answer on any of them so I did this I did treble crochet instead of her double and added an extra stitch at the end of the row where you do chain si and also added another treble crochet into the stitches so it ended up being four treble crochets and chain four it turned out wonderful fits a king size bed
