CHUNKY YARN FUN!
If you love chunky yarn and want to work up a crochet blanket fast then this is the pattern for you! This chunky ripple crochet afghan pattern is an easy project that works up fast!
USES HALF DOUBLE CROCHET STITCH!
This is a half double crochet chevron pattern which is a little different than most of the other chevrons you may see. The hdc in combination with the bulky yarn make this a great pattern to mindlessly watch Netflix with and get your crochetflixing (I made up a word..) on!
You will also need Hometown Yarn by Lion Brand in Aspen Tweed which is a beautiful neutral color to work with and goes with most any decor!
TOOK ME 2 YEARS TO FINISH!
I actually started this almost 2 years ago and it has been sitting waiting to be posted! I could blame a lot of thing on this beauty of a chunky chevron blanket never being posted but really it’s because it was shamelessly buried in my yarn stash basket. Yep, 2 years buried under yarn..
Are you ready to learn how to crochet a chevron blanket and itching to get started yet? Hopefully this blanket doesn’t take you two years like me to finish because I’d really love to see your creations sooner than that! 🙂
Have fun and Happy Crocheting!
