10 Closed Crochet Stitches PERFECT for Scarves, Blankets, or Pillows

Looking for closed crochet stitches that will work for scarves or blankets? I’m so excited to show you this Stitch Collection that includes crochet stitches with no holes!

Now, if you know me or have read my blog before, you probably know that I LOVE unique crochet stitches. My favorite “category” would most likely be lace (I have so many lace stitch tutorials here on the blog!)

BUT, lace stitches are generally not so good for projects like blankets or scarves. Although you can get it to be warm if you use the right yarn, there really is something to be said for crochet stitches without holes (or at least fewer holes than lace, haha).

10 Stitches Perfect for Blankets and Scarves

Join my 2021 Stitch-Along to Make Crochet Stitches Without Holes!

If you’re like me and you’ve made lots of lace or textured stitches…but not so many closed stitch patterns, I would invite you to join my 2021 stitch along!

Each week starting January 15, I will be releasing 1 new stitch pattern and tutorial every Friday.

Each stitch is designed to be perfect for projects like scarves, blankets, pillows, and dishcloths (and lots more too!)

The stitch along does not officially start until the first stitch is released on January 15th.

BUT, you can get ALL of the stitches sooner if you purchase the Closed Stitch Dictionary PDF!

This option will allow you to have early access to ALL of the stitch patterns, photo tutorials, and video tutorials completely ad-free.

Don’t wait – grab yours here right now!

How to Join

This stitch along is very RELAXED. If you’ve joined any of my CALs before, you know I don’t like to have any crazy requirements.

There’s just a few steps you can take to join:

  • First, sign up for my email list below (so you are notified any time a new stitch is live!)
  • Join my Facebook group if you haven’t already, where we can share pictures of the stitches and support each other
  • Decide how you will participate (either week by week on the blog, OR with the ad-free stitch dictionary)
  • Look through your yarn to find leftovers to try out the stitches

That’s really all there is to it!

Soooo…are you ready to see all the stitch patterns we will make together?

How to Crochet a Blanket With Your Squares

You might be wondering, can you make a blanket using the swatches you make from this stitch-along?

Yes, that is totally possible, but I highly recommend you make a plan from the beginning.

The stitch patterns that are released each week are not written as “square patterns” with gauge that makes them all the same size. If you would like to make yours into a blanket, here’s what I recommend you do:

  1. Decide on a yarn weight you will use for ALL your squares (i.e. worsted, sport, etc.)
  2. Decide on a SIZE for your blanket, and then calculate how big your 10 squares should be based on that
  3. Once the stitch patterns start releasing, use the multiples provided to make sure each square turns out the same size.

Using these 3 steps, you should be able to easily make a custom crocheted blanket out of the stitches from this CAL!

I hope you’ll join us for this fun, relaxed 2021 stitch along! Make sure you join using the steps toward the top of this post.

Happy Crocheting!

  1. If I’m already receiving your newsletter do I need to register specifically for the stitches? I do not want to miss this informative series ;D

    1. Hi Carol! Yes, it is best to sign up just to make sure you get updates. This will ensure you get an email every time a new stitch releases (For those who don’t sign up, i likely won’t update as often).

  2. Thanks for the prompt response. More help needed; I signed up but when I tried to submit, I received this error:

    This site can’t be reachedstatic.mailerlite.com refused to connect.

    Checking the connection
    Checking the proxy and the firewall

    1. Oh no!! That’s so weird. Did you make sure to click the checkbox at the bottom?

      I do know the form is working because others have signed up. Maybe try reloading the page too?

    2. If all else fails, feel free to send me an email with the email address you’d like to be signed up. I can add you manually😊

  3. I’ve done the camel, moss, alpine and star stitches but the others are beautiful and I’m looking forward to trying them. I’m already on your facebook group and email list but will do the join one to make sure I am reminded of new stitches

    1. Oh hi Ruth, I do know you from FB! I’m glad you’re going to participate even though you already know some of them! That’s why I love relaxed CALs 😊

  4. Hi, Rachel! I’m working on the Suzette Stitch square and I found what might be an ambiguity for some. The Row 2 instruction for the second group of stitches says “Sc in next sc, dc in next sc.” Everyplace else, that says “dc in same stitch.” It’s clear in the video that the second one should also say “dc in the same stitch,” but this could confuse a less experienced crocheter. I’m looking forward to the rest of the blocks. Thank you.
