I am a new crocheter, and was hoping someone could tell me what stitch was used for this anthropologie blanket:


Also, could they be using roving, or is it just really thick yarn? Here is the catalogue link for up close views:

Thanks so much for any help!

*pulls out stitch dictionary*

It looks to me like single crochet, but like every other row is crocheted into the back loop, to create a ribbing effect. It also looks like it is made with thick yarn, not roving.

I am a new crocheter too, so if this is not it, hopefully someone has a better idea.

I was going to say half double crochet through the back loop.  I honnestly thing it's half double, but if you want to make the blanket, double is much faster.

I'm also going with half-double through the back loop only.  I think the yarn is a VERY thick single ply.  If you can find a similar yarn it will go very quickly since the yarn is so thick.  If you can't find anything that thick, looks to me like maybe polar weight) you could hold together two strands of bulky or even super-bulky weight.

Thanks for all the responses!  This will be the perfect christmas gift for my sister, I'm really psyched to try it out.

Just to clarify- we think that each row is half double crochet through the back loop? Or does it alternate rows (one row regular hdc, one hcd tbl)?

no, go through the back loop on every row... it will make your blanket look like a concertina... almost like knit ribbing.
