Thank you for posting this. I have a baby boy on the way and I have the blanket my great grandma crocheted for me over 30 years ago! It does have some holes and want to fix it. Now I know it is possible... I just need to learn how to crochet!

Really, a nice job! I've repaired quite a few afghans for others. Sometimes you can use yarn from the outer part of the afghan to fix the inner damage. Makes the repair less noticeable if the yarn, at least, matches. Then use anything current that goes with the afghan to redo the area where you took yarn. If the original is variegated, try matching 2 of the colors with a thinner yarn, and crochet with both colors together. It will almost always blend in better than using a modern variegated

My dog also chewed a hole in a blanket my mom made for me. I have been trying to find a good site with step by step instructions on how to repair it. The pictures really helped! Great job, by the way.

Thanks, Penny, for your informative post about repairing a crocheted blanket. I have a cotton thread doily my Mother made for me several years ago. Somehow, it also got a hole in it. By using your post, I may be able to repair this lovely doily. Although, the repair will be visible it will still be better than a hole. Again, thanks.

Great job done by you here. It is not a simple and easy task to repair crochet blanket. It is inspire to me to do such work.

Please can you help, I live in the UK and desperately need to find someone who can repair a crochet blanket for me. It belongs to my best friend who lent it to me many years ago when I had my daughter. Unfortunately it became damaged and now she is awaiting the arrival of her first grandchild and would like it returned. I desperately need to have it repaired. Can anyone out there help me?

Great post! I had someone asking my how to do this the other day, so I'm so glad I could point them at your site! I linked to you on my blog: http://www.mooglyblog.com/unpinning-pinterest-for-march-2013/

Thanks so much for sharing!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! My grandmother crocheted a beautiful blanket and my pup got a hold of it. I've kept it safe for years unsure of how to repair it. I am SO SO happy that I can finally fix it. Yay!

Thanks for taking the time to prepare and post this.
Repairing something special will almost always take a fair bit of time and effort -so this is an example of the importance of swatching before starting.
Taking the time to analyze the pattern and swatch it will contribute to creating not just a way to prevent further deterioration, but possibly a way to add your own footnote to a piece that will continue to serve your family for many years into the future.

I have this giant afghan that was made by someone's mother. My dad knew the guy and rescued the blanket as the guy was trying get rid of it. He then turned around and gave it to me while I was pregnant with my son. My dad and I did not get along back then and this blanket was not only a peace offering, but also the perfect present for me. I have used it constantly for years, but my cats snag it up a lot. I've rescued it from a few small holes but one of them was starting to get away from me. I chanced upon this blog right at the point where I would need to retire the blanket for its own good. Thank you for taking the time to post this and give me the tools I need to keep the best present I have ever gotten wrapped around me and my family.
