Crazy Chunky Crochet Blanket

A chunky blanket, thanks to its bulky yarn, ranks as one of my favorite crochet blanket patterns. Its snug warmth, perfect for more chilly weather, is hard to resist by kids and adults alike. Be it a relaxing evening in front of the TV or a talking time with your little ones, a chunky blanket is just perfect.

They come in various textures fitting the weather mood and stand as the top decorative piece on your bed. However, today I focused on creating an easy crochet, crazy chunky blanket featuring a bit more beautiful open work, perfect for early winter when bulky heat isn’t as necessary.

Using basic stitches like single crochet and chain stitch, this tutorial welcomes beginners. The experts can never have too many blankets! So crocheting many in various colors could end up as a delightful gift. This written tutorial will go through everything, from making the blanket to adding special touches like charming pom-poms. So, let’s start creating your comfy chunky blanket!

Materials You Will Need

So what should we gather before getting started? Here are some great supplies options you will love to utilize:

1- Yarn

As the name Chunky suggests, you’ll need bulky and thick yarn when you head to the market. But also, it must be soft, comfy, and durable. Especially if you’re crocheting for your little ones, use something that can easily be washed without losing appeal and hypoallergic.

Our Choices:

Here are the yarns we used for this crazy chunky blanket pattern:

  • Our top pick was The Sexy Wool from the Wool and the Gang brand. This yarn is 100% natural fiber, making it gentle on your skin, and it’s got fantastic heat maintenance, perfect for that coziness finders.
  • Another fantastic option for this Crazy Chunky Blanket is Urban from Yarn and Colors. Made from 15% wool and 85% acrylic. If you decide to go with Urban from Yarn and Colours.

There is not always a strict rule to choose from because there are so many options for great blanket yarns and their colors.

Is Chunky Yarn Easy To Work?

The chunky yarn, relative to thin yarn, is super easy to work with, even by beginners, because you can easily find the stitches and complete your blanket quickly. So you do not need to worry!

How Much Yarn Will I Need?

The size of your desired blanket decides how much yarn you’ll need. We’re using bulky yarn here, meaning you’ll need less than what you’d use with thinner yarn. However, you will have some extra in many cases. You can check the table online.

If you’re following our pattern (for a small child throw blanket) gauge, here’s a simple guide:

  • If you’re using the first option, you’ll need 7 balls of yarn. This includes enough yarn to crochet 4 lovely pom-poms.
  • If you choose the second one, you’d need about 9 balls.

2- Crochet Hook:

We are using a hook with a size of 12mm that is perfect for a bulky weight yarn.  Ensure you are comfortable working with it by practicing on little test patterns and have an excellent grip on this hook.
