Lumberjack Flannelghan Lapghan

Posted on April 28, 2017

The lumberjack flannelghan is a beautiful blanket pattern and I just love the look of it. There are many different color combinations that can be crocheted to make this blanket. I used soft navy and white Red Heart yarn to crochet my blanket.

Here is the link to the original lumberjack flannelghan pattern. The original pattern makes a 5 x 7 foot blanket. I wanted to crochet a small blanket that would be a lapghan size.

My lapghan was crocheted using a N (9 mm) hook with two strands of yarn held together. I played around with the pattern to make the squares smaller so I could crochet a lapghan sized blanket. I chained 16 to start and did 8 rows of DC for the first block. There are 15 DC’s on each row counting the Ch-2 at the beginning of the row. I crocheted 8 rows for each color square with a total of 5 squares for each strip. Each strip is about 7 inches wide. There are a total of 5 strips in my lapghan blanket.

For the border, I crocheted with a single strand of soft navy yarn with a I hook. I crocheted in single crochet stitches around the blanket for 2 rounds with 3 stitches in the corner spaces.

The finished size is 36” by 35”. I used about 17 ounces of soft navy yarn and 15 ounces of white to complete my lapghan blanket. I love how this modified crochet pattern worked out. The finished size would also make a wonderful baby blanket.
