Popular Chunky Crochet Blankets

I swear the art of crochet has jumped to new soaring heights as there are so many yarn lovers making so many wonderful and beautiful crochet items. It has become the HIP thing to do.  One of the most popular handmade items I am seeing right now is the coveted super chunky crochet blanket. Well, this fluffy blanket will not disappoint in the super chunky feel. The yarn is a 5 on the bulky scale. To be honest, I purchased this yarn on a huge sale online at Love Crafts and did not even realize that it was a bulky yarn. let’s look at a closeup of the fluffiness of this yarn.

It’s like crocheting a cloud!

It’s all about the Fluff!

I think if I would have realized really what I was purchasing at that giant sale, I might have not purchased so much or maybe not any at all. To be honest working with a fluffy and bulky yarn with little nubs on it kind of scares me. Why? How the heck to you see the stitches! Am I right!?! Well, let me tell you how this is done with ease.

The trickiest part of this crochet blanket is the first row. After that, it as a breeze.

First Row

When crocheting the first row, I tugged a bit on the beginning chain stitches to see where to insert my crochet hook for the next set of stitches. Make sure that you have good lighting for this first row. Once this row is complete, it is easy to see right where to insert your hook as it is between to double crochet stitches.

Just look at the soft and snugly results.

Tips on Working with Fluffy Yarn

The first tip is to feel your way through the yarn. Once you do a few rounds you should be able to get a feel for where your crochet hook need to go to achieve the stitches as you learn the new yarn and hook tension. Additionally, when first working with this yarn, it might be best to avoid dark colors. They are hard to see the stitches in anyway and the fluffy yarn, makes it even more difficult. Lastly, use a stitch that works with the yarn, not against it.

Color Rows

This crochet pattern has a repeat of the row color order.

  1. Lemonade
  2. Sprout
  3. Cloud
  4. Cotton Candy

However, that is based on a specific number of rows completed when the colors are changed. The row pattern for color changing is 6, 3, 2. Therefore, the first 6 rows used Lemonade, the next 3 rows used Sprout, then the next 2 rows used Cloud yarn. the next color was Cotton Candy and because the 6, 3, 2 pattern will be repeated, the Cotton Candy is worked for 6 rows. Hopefully, this makes sense. I think that this helped give this blanket a modern look. Reference the color charts at the bottom of this crochet pattern for more detail.
