As fall creeps up around the corner, the knitting community is excited to participate in this year’s trendiest projects. From household decor to comfy sweaters, we are all eager to see what is in store for this year.
Everyone loves a soft and warm blanket for the fall months, so why not crochet your own? Chunky blankets have gotten incredibly popular over the years. Folks don’t only use them to keep warm, but they are also perfect for home decor. These blankets are very easy to make and require simple stitching techniques. Every blanket can turn out different as well so every project is unique!
To make a chunky crochet blanket you will need lots of chunky yarn, a large crochet hook and a yarn needle. First, you will start by making the foundation chain of your blanket and then chaining across however many chains you would like. Then you will put the chain into the second chain and crochet it into each stitch across. Keep repeating this.
Once you have finished, weave the ending pieces of yarn in. Now you have a giant chunky blanket… what a great holiday gift!
