I’m not going to lie. I have been obsessing over those super plush-looking giant knit blankets for quite sometime now. Ever since I first saw them I wanted to make one. But then I did some research on the wool. It’s insane how much roving wool costs. Not only that but there were many complaints on how it falls apart when you work with it or it pills really easily or it sheds. All things you don’t want to have in a blanket that would get lost of use by kids. Then I found the Bernat Big Blanket yarn at Michael’s and I knew I had to create a project where I could work with it. The giant knit blankets were just a starting point. I realized that if people can create knit blankets by hand, then I can create a hand crocheted blanket. So that’s exactly what I did.
- Yarn (I used 10 skeins of Bernat Big Blanket)
- Your hands for crocheting
Abbreviations: ch – chain, st – stitch, sts – stitches, sc – single crochet
Ch. 26 sts.
Row 1: SC in the 2nd ch. from hook (or in this case, your hand). SC in BL of each st across. Ch. 1, turn your work. (25 sts.)
Row 2-End: SC in first st. SC in each st. across.
Cut off your tail and weave in your ends.
