Circle Lap-ghan

This little lap-blanket is crocheted as a full circle, using a large hook with 2 strands of yarn held together. It’s fast and easy, and the big stitches give it lots of loft and a relaxed drape. It works well as an around-the-shoulders wrap, too. This makes a great prayer shawl.

Recommended Yarn for This Pattern
Lion Brand Wool-Ease Worsted Weight Yarn
This is my all-time favorite yarn. It's nice to work with, has the warmth of wool, and the washability of acrylic. It is machine washable and dryable. I love to use it for gifts, because it's so easy to care for. And it comes in lots of great colors.


  1. Thanks for sharing. I am going to try this with the odd single skeins of baby yarn I have. It looks quick which is what I need because I have a two-week old niece and my first grandbaby is due any day. Gotta get going.

  2. Thanks for sharing. This would be a really great gift for a person in a nursing home. It would keep their legs warm in a wheel chair or to be put around their shoulders. I will be making this for our charity!

  3. Really cute and something different to work on. Thanks for sharing!
