The amount of Pinterest attention to this post is so crazy! Thanks for reading, friends. It means so much to me that you’re here. Let me know if you have any questions! Feel free to follow along and stay awhile.
I made this blanket in one day.
Granted, I worked on it about all day. But still, I think a day is pretty good. All of the other blankets I’ve made have taken me at least a month to make.
I used a pretty big crochet hook (biggest I could find) and nine skeins of Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick yarn.
For the first row, start with a slip stitch and make chain stitches for as long as you want the blanket to be. Start row two on the fourth stitch from your hook, making double crochet stitches.
Once you get to the end of row two, make four chain stitches and start row three on the second double crochet (the chain stitches act as your first double crochet). Repeat row three for the rest of the blanket and that’s all there is to it! I found that each skein of yarn had enough for four rows, with the exception of the first skein.
I love how chunky and soft this blanket turned out! Even though the holes between the stitches are pretty big, it’s still so warm. And who doesn’t want a cozy handmade blanket?
