The Yarn for Crochet Blankets That Is Perfect!
Check out the yarns I recommend to use for crochet blankets below! You can use all kinds of yarn, but I prefer yarns that are a chunkier weight because the pattern works up so much faster.
I’d recommend trying a few different fibers to see, which is your personal favorite. Yarn works up uniquely with different stitches so be sure to experiment. You will find that a single crochet and a half double crochet will look very different when worked up even with the same yarn.
