Are crochet blankets worth it?

Are crochet blankets worth it? I've already spent $20 on yarn and I'm like barely halfway done 🙁 Am I doing something wrong or is that just kinda how it is?

    Nothing is worth making anymore. Raw goods cost more than finished products, unless you can get steep discounts.

    For things like crocheting, the real value is the sentimental value or customization possible by doing it yourself, as well as the pride gained from learning a new skill and accomplishing something. You can buy a warm polyester blanket for like 15$ that will be warmer, and last longer without special care - but nothing will be able to replace a gift from a loved one.

    It's always more expensive to knit or crochet something. Usually by a lot. I have probably spent thousands in yarn over the years. I also never sell anything I make because people would be aphaled at the price.

    My wife has been crocheting since she was a little girl. you'll get good enough to the point that you can rip apart your work and start over without a second thought. And you'll get faster. Yes it's worth it. I have countless blankets my wife has made and they're cozy as frick. Also thick yarn like that is shit and makes for uncomfortable blankets and use more material because you need a larger hook. Why did you get troony colors though? Are you a troony?

    yes, they are worth it. much warmer than commercial shit, however you shouldn't use expensive yarn for house blankets. Buy the cheap redheart stuff, you can get it in packs from amazon. Also if you just want a basic b***h blanket use double crotchet throughout to speed things up. half doubles for a little warmer, singles if you want ultimate insulation. Double crotchet saves yarn. If you want an especially light blanket do one double crochet, chain 1 or 2, skip 1 or 2 holes and do another double crochet to anchor in place. That gives you an open pattern. You can do 3 or 4 doubles in a row, then chain 2, skip 2, 3 or 4 more double crotchets, and so on for a good compromise between strength and an open pattern. You can also make a blanket out of individual granny squares of any size and stitch them together and then run a border around the outside edge or just on the top and bottom. All kinds of ways to make blankets.
