Use This Big Stitch Yarn to Create an Oversized Crochet Piece
I was so excited when Sarah from Mama Knows Luxury asked me to try out some of her fabulous big stitch yarn. It is quite beautiful and was so very soft to work with throughout the pattern. This yarn so awesome to work with and created this giant cozy blanket.
This throw is the definition of an extreme crochet blanket if you ask me! If you love extreme crochet patterns, then this one is for you!
Make a Big Yarn Blanket Fast With This Extra Chunky Yarn!
Hello Chunky Yarn Heaven! I decided to make a big stitch extreme crochet blanket pattern because you better go big or go home. Also, I hadn’t had the opportunity to work with such a unique yarn before.
It was quite amazing getting to work with this luxurious super bulky yarn and creating something so fluffy! I loved it 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?
So Many Beautiful Colors to Chose From to Make Your Big Blanket!
For my colors, I chose Grey, Ice Blue (pictured above) and Yellow which in my opinion the perfect spring colors! There are so many more to pick from so you can pick what you love instead.
*Update 2020: This yarn I used is no longer available but I found a comparable big yarn online that will work just as well.
I started my blanket by chaining 13 with my 40 mm 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.
This hook is pretty fabulous mostly due to the sheer size of it. It was definitely fun to work with throughout the pattern.
I did try single crochet and double crochets too but decided to go with the half double crochets because I loved the way they made the wool look. I think after you try it; also, you’ll agree!
You Could Make a Big Knit Blanket Too
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!
