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).
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 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:
- Decide on a yarn weight you will use for ALL your squares (i.e. worsted, sport, etc.)
- Decide on a SIZE for your blanket, and then calculate how big your 10 squares should be based on that
- 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.
