Learn To Crochet: Chunky Blanket

Pull out that crochet hook you’ve got stashed away because I’m about to show you how to make the easiest, coziest, most rewarding blanket…ever. It snowed today and I am so glad I have this blanket to cozy up with for these winter months!

materials: chunky yarn (similar, similar), size Q crochet hook

process: chain 86 (or until desired width), *single crochet in second chain from the hook, single crochet across, chain one* and repeat from asterisks until the desired width you want.

my method & notes: Don’t know how to crochet? Here is how to chain,single crochet and if you prefer to make your blanket go a little faster with a taller stitch, you can use double crochet instead!

I ended up using 13 balls of 100yd Loops & Threads Ginormous yarn that I bought during a half off sale at Michaels and can’t seem to find for sale on their website. Check out their stores for availability, it is JUST like the “similar” I linked above but comes with way more per skein.

My blanket ended up measuring 56in x 85in. It is very heavy, but extremely warm!

I crocheted this over a period of about 3 days, a few hours here and there while binge watching Netflix.

As you can see, it is rather large and chunky and just all around cozy goodness.

The key to a good chunky blanket is the yarn. I am so glad I found this yarn at my local Michaels! Hopefully one day I’ll knit an even chunkier when I get up the nerve to order some roving online. Have you been crocheting or knitting anything lately?

Here is where to find chunky yarn!
