Here it is the one and only Virus Blanket. The name may be unfortunate, but the project is great!

Undoubtedly, the legendary Virus Blanket Crochet Pattern is one of the most impressive stitch patterns ever! There are so many different versions of this pattern that we now have hundreds of color palettes to choose from. Virus crochet blanket is one of the free patterns that ignite creativity and makes it spread like… well, a virus! Although its fame isn’t comparable to the granny square, it’s still definitely worth a try.

Crocheters fell in love with the free virus blanket pattern and came up with lots of new versions. Besides crochet blankets and baby blankets, you will find virus shawls and home accessories. Many of these creations are available as free crochet patterns, so check the links below the pictures.

Unfortunately, the original pattern is no longer free, but there are many other sources you can choose from. For example, you can still watch the free youtube video tutorial made by Jonna Martinez, the author of the pattern.

You will find the free video tutorial at the end of the post. The link to the pattern is under the first photo.

  1. I clicked on the link and it doesn’t work. It takes me to a page that tells me the pattern isn’t there.

    1. Sorry Susan, link was broken. I fixed it. Thank you for your comment.

  2. I am using different colors each change to use up left over wool. To those complaining about the size of the holes. Use a thinner thread and adjust the needle size. The holes will be smaller. I like it the way it is because I can move along at a faster pace. Thanks for sharing this pattern. I do these blankets to donate to different causes in need.

  3. I finally got the hang of this pattern thanks to you… Your video helped alot.. Thanks..

  4. I May have a silly question…but how did you finish this blanket off? Is it a row of single crochets in white then again in grey?

    I’ve just finished everything up to the very end! Thanks so much for your help!

  5. Can you tell me what yarn was used for the rainbow blanket? Thanks so much!
