Easy Weekend Crochet Blanket Project
I would suggest this simple crochet blanket to anyone looking for a relaxing weekend project, or anyone that wants to make a beautiful looking crochet piece that looks much harder than it actually is!
I always find myself watching TV when crocheting, so I recommend adding Netflix (or Disney+) to your crochet marathon to make it even more fun and it makes the time go by so much faster!
For example, I started my Charlotte on a Friday and finished it up on Sunday night! See, It is totally an easy weekend crochet project. Maybe I can call it Croflixing? Whatever, it’s called it’s fun!
The Yarn That’s Perfect for a Chunky Crochet Blanket
For my crochet blanket, I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in Gray & Claret. This yarn is considered a chunky or super bulky yarn which means it so cozy to work up.
I also wanted to mention that the there is a wool-free version of this yarn called Thick & Quick which is a great alternative. I know the name can be tricky and it looks like the Wool-Ease line but it isn’t so just be mindful of what you buy and double check it is the wool-free version.
This yarn comes in a big variety of colors! You can find solid colors, tweeds and more. My favorite color at the moment is Hudson Bay which I used in my chunky crochet blanket.
The best part of this yarn is that since it is a super bulky fiber whatever you are crocheting with will work up amazingly fast! I hope you love yarn as much as I do!
I call it a win-win since this blanket is a cozy and fast project! I also wanted to mention that I used a huge 15.75 mm size Q crochet hook which is always a blast to work with because my kids think it is so funny how big it is! Check it out in the picture below.
Want to Make a Different Size Crochet Blanket?
It is written to be a great crochet throw blanket for on a couch or chair. But below in the pattern, I’ve included notes on how to make this blanket smaller or larger if you need it to be.
Take a look at the crochet blanket size chart to find the perfect size blanket too.
You will need to adjust the amount of yarn needed, but it will still work great!
