4 Methods On How to Gift Wrap a Crochet Blanket

Wrapping your handmade crochet gift is an important aspect of the gift-giving process. A beautifully wrapped crochet gift shows that you put time and effort into making your crocheter feel special. Below are ten easy ways on how to wrap a crochet blanket so that it can be presented in style!

1. Spiral Wrapping Method

This is the most creative way to wrap afghans, baby blankets, and even giant Granny Square blankets! I know of no other technique that is as creative as this one.

The spiral wrapping method begins when your shawl or blanket is laid out nicely in front of you with the tip facing towards you. Fold the bottom half of the blanket over so that it looks like a long rectangle. Fold this rectangle up towards you and then back down again to make a long strip. Next, take the strip and fold it to your right at a 90-degree angle. You would like your bundle to be. Once you’re done with the strip, hold the end of it, lift up your spiral, and place it on top of itself at a slight angle for that added special touch!

2. Bed Roll Method

This method is perfect for crocheting baby blankets or afghans that are thinner in weight. It’s also perfect for crocheters who are tight on time because it doesn’t require much effort! Next, fold the top half over to look like a long rectangle. Next, fold this rectangle on each end towards the center one fold at a time until only one fold is left. Once you’ve done this, place your blanket (rectangle side up) on top of itself and flatten it out. There is no need to tie any knots because the corner will stick into each other.

3. Square Knot Wrapping Method

The square knot wrapping method is used mainly for baby blankets, afghans, or more oversized shawls that are slightly heavy. To begin this method, lay your crochet project flat out in front of you with the top facing towards you, as shown below. Fold the right side over to look like a long rectangle with two folds at each end. Next, fold the bottom half towards you, so it makes another rectangle. As with all folding methods, the rectangle should have two folds at each end. Once you’re all set with your folded blanket, take one corner and fold it over to the other side. Your last step is to tie a knot, and that’s it!

4. Saran Wrap Method

The saran wrap method is perfect for crochet clothing such as scarfs, hats, and bags because it keeps them secure without using any knots. When using this method, you first need to lie out your item flat facing towards you, as shown below. Fold the top half to make a diamond shape, as we’ve done here. Next, take one side of the fabric and bring it diagonally over the top of itself until its center meets the center of the diamond you’ve created. Take this diagonal fabric, bring it underneath the diamond, and repeat this saran wrap technique until your item is neatly wrapped.

When you’re all finished with wrapping your crochet gift, grab any extra loose ends of yarn and twist them together until they meet. Use a clamp or clothespin to keep the twisted pieces securely in place for about 10 minutes, allowing them to dry off fully. Once dry, gently pull on each end of the clamp/clothespin until your knot comes untied, and proceed to remove it from around your crocheted project!

Another option instead of using a clamp or clothespin is by using a large pin – insert one side of the pin into the twisted pieces of yarn right at their base and leave it in place until it’s dry. Once dry, remove the pin from your crochet project, allowing it to unravel naturally, as shown below!

Tips and Suggestions

  • Use a blanket/throw with an already finished edge as it will be easier to create the loops needed for wrapping.
  • Check out this post on CraftStylish for step-by-step, written instructions.
  • Make sure the yarn you choose is strong and durable enough to handle your gift’s repeated wrapping and unwrapping. – Consider crocheting or knitting a flower applique to slip onto your package. It adds a special touch to any handmade present!
  • Or just leave it natural and let the recipient create their own adornments for their beautiful blanket!

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Blankets Hard to Crochet?

No, Blankets are not hard to crochet. In fact, many people find them to be quite easy once you get started. The key is to master the basics so that you can make any type of blanket without difficulty. Many experienced crocheters recommend that beginners start with a simple afghan or scarf before moving on to more complex projects.

Once you know the basics, there are no limits to what you can create! There are dozens of variations and designs available online or in your local yarn store, and there’s no need for complicated instructions – just follow along step-by-step and have fun!

Is It Better to Knit or Crochet a Blanket?

It depends on many factors- personal preference, the intended use of the blanket, and the type of yarn being used. Some people prefer to knit a blanket, while others prefer to crochet one.

At the end of the day, the best thing you can do is experiment a bit and see what you like best. You might find that one style is more your thing than the other.

What Is the Quickest Crochet Stitch?

When it comes to crochet, the quickest stitch is often double crochet. This fast-paced stitch can be worked using a hook size D/3 or E (3.25mm) and requires only two loops on the hook at a time. It’s important to note that this stitch is not interchangeable with single crochet, resulting in an uneven texture.
