I was so excited when Sarah from Mama Knows Luxury asked me to try out some of her amazing big stitch yarn. It really is quite beautiful and so very soft to work with. 🙂 I mean, look at that yarn!
Hello Chunky Yarn Heaven! 🙂
I decided to make a big stitch extreme crochet blanket pattern because you better go big or go home! 🙂
It was quite amazing getting to work with this luxurious yarn and creating something so fluffy! I loved when I first opened up the package because it was spun up in a ball and almost looked like a cloud! Do you see it too? 🙂
For my colors I chose Grey, Ice Blue (pictured above) and Yellow which are the perfect spring colors! I started my blanket by chaining 13 with my 40mm crochet hook (which is also from Mama Knows Luxury) and then proceeded to do simple half double crochets back through on my CH’s to complete the first row. I did try single crochet and double crochets too, but decided to go with the half double crochets because I really loved the way they made the wool look.
I have also seen this yarn used to make extreme knit blankets with too, and it looks just as amazing! I think I may want to try that next!

I really loved felting my blanket! It was really fun to see how the wool eventually blended together to become one strand. I’m obsessed!
After you are done felting then you are finished with your very own extreme blanket!
