Bedspread

An accomplished crafter who can crochet intricate patterns for full-size crochet bedspreads make them with yarn or mercerised cotton. Heirloom patterns including Bridal Wreath, Wedding Ring, Irish Rose, Popcorn and Pineapple are made with white or pastel crochet cotton thread. Most of these bedspreads are made in squares or motifs that you assemble in rows. A crochet bedspread project may take many hours or even months to complete.

Afghan

Make large afghans using the ripple stitch, afghan stitch, granny square or a chevron pattern with worsted yarn. Crochet the bed coverings in blocks or strips in a variety of stitches. You can make a solid blanket afghan with a foundation colour and decorate it with embedded florals, scenery and animals. One-piece blankets can be decorated with cross stitch or crocheted flowers that add dimension to the project. Afghan patterns are available for you to make to fit twin to king size beds. Create small crib-size afghans for a winter bed covering for a baby.

Duvet

Make crocheted duvet covers with yarn or mercerised cotton in a solid piece or strips of blocks. Match the two rectangular shapes when crocheting the equally sized pieces. Sew the pieces using a whip stitch or crochet them together with slip stitches on three sides of the bed cover to create the duvet pocket. Add buttons that you can fasten into crocheted holes after placing the duvet into the cover.

The Unexpected

Repurpose an antique crocheted lace tablecloth into a bed cover by backing it with a cotton sheet or fabric. You can also crochet medallions, flowers or strips of lace to sew on to a comforter for a bed covering. Create your own crochet design using a favourite pattern such as the pineapple stitch, popcorn stitch or star stitch to make a bedspread. Crochet a series of squares using leftover yarns to make a crocheted quilt for a warm, colourful project.
