Pattern Inspiration

I must tell you; I restarted this blanket six times! Imagine getting through the first skein of yarn and ripping it all out! Yup, I did that six times. That was me. I would be almost done with the first skein after a few evenings of work. Then, I would look at the stitch pattern result and not like it. Ugh! Frustrating.

I let the yarn sit in my tote bag for a few weeks. I moved onto the lovely Aurora Borealis Shawl. The whole time I kept thinking about what to do with the super bulky yarn.

Fast forward to the Natural Wicker Stitch Crochet Tutorial. As I was working with this stitch, I thought about the bulky yarn and thought it would be a great combination. Once I tried a few rows, I knew I had a crochet stitch that would work well with this squishy yarn. It has a 3D v-stitch effect. I love it!

The best part is that this handmade blanket uses simple stitches. If you can work the double crochet and the chain stitch, you can work this free crochet pattern. I am so happy with how this turned out, it’s just the perfect pattern for the yarn weight.  It was a good choice!

This blanket worked up rather quickly too. Each skein took about 4 or 5 hours to complete while watching television with the family. So, in 25 hours or less, I was able to finish this squishy throw.

Directions: Puffy and Dreamy Chunky Crochet Throw Blanket Pattern

Skill Level


You should be able to work the double crochet stitch and work it around the posts of the stitches below. Once you have mastered this method, you are ready for this pattern.

Finished Size

51 inches wide X 66 inches long.

However, you can easily make this in a different size. Adjust the width by adjusting the beginning foundational chain stitches by 4. Change the length to your desired length by adjusting the rows.


7 double crochet stitches every 4 inches. About 5 rows of double crochet every 4 inches.


Bernat Blanket Yarn from Yarnspirations. I used 5 skeins of the Purple Plum color 220 yards each or 1,100 yards total.

If you are not able to find the yarn locally, you can order it right from Yarnspirations.

I like to use a large crochet hook that is stainless-steel from Furls. Much less chance of breakage when working with this bulky weight yarn.

I have a links to Furls and Yarnspirations on my savings page.

9.0 mm Crochet Hook Size N. The recommended hook size on the yarn wrapper is 8.0 mm Size L. However, I found the larger size to work well for this chunky yarn blanket.

Tapestry Needle, to weave in yarn ends.

CH = Chain

See Special Stitches for how to work the v-stitch combinations below.

CH 2 V-Stitch = Chain Two V-Stitch

CH 3 V-Stitch = Chain Three V-Stitch

DC = Double Crochet

FPDC = Front Post Double Crochet

SK = Skip

SP = Space

ST = Stitch

STs = Stitches

[ ] = Repeat Between

Special Stitches

Chain Two V-Stitch (CH 2 V-Stitch). Work [1 DC, CH 2, 1 DC] into same ST.

Chain Three V-Stitch (CH 3 V-Stitch). Work [1 DC, CH 3, 1 DC] into same ST.

Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC)

Front post stitches are raised crochet stitches on the surface of the fabric facing you. Note: Because a post stitch is shorter than a normal stitch, you make the turning chain with one chain stitch less than the normal turning chain requires. Yarn over, insert the hook from front to back between the posts of the first and second double crochet of the row below. Then insert the hook from the back to the front between the posts of the second and third stitches. (The hook should now be positioned horizontally behind the double crochet that you are working around). Yarn over, pull the yarn around the post of the stitch. There should now be 3 loops on the hook. Yarn over, pull the yarn through 2 loops on the hook. Lastly, yarn over again and pull through the last two loops on the hook.


Crochet Pattern Notes

Chain two and turn at the end of the row.

This pattern is a two row repeat throughout. Repeat row two and three.

You can change yarn skeins at the end of row. Or you can use the secure yarn know join. This is what I did. I just kept crocheting until I ran out of yarn, joined the next skein, and kept going. With the dark yarn, you are not able to see any knots. Here is a video on how to make the secure knot.

This pattern is written in U S Crochet Terms.

To begin, make a slip knot and then chain 100 foundation chain stitches.  

Row 1

In the fourth chain from your hook, work one CH 2 V-Stitch. *Refer to the special stitches above*. [Skip the next three stitches, work a CH 2 V-Stitch in the next stitch]. Repeat between [ ] across. In the final ST work a CH 2 V-Stitch and a DC. Chain 2 and turn your work.

Row 2

SK the first stitch. In the next ST work a [FPDC around the next DC, in the CH 2 SP work a CH 3 V-Stitch, work a FPDC around the post of the next DC]. Repeat between [ ] across. End with a DC in the last starting chain two space in the previous row. CH 2 and turn.

Row 3

*You will be working in CH 3 spaces across for this row.*

Start by skipping over to the first CH 3 SP from the hook and work a CH 2 V-Stitch. [SK to the next CH 3 SP and work a CH 2 V-Stitch]. Repeat across between [ ] to the end. DC in the final starting CH 2 SP in the previous row. CH 2 and turn.

Rows 4 through 53

Continue repeating rows 2 and 3.


Cut off a long yarn tail about 10-12 inches. Pull through the last loop. Use the yarn needle to weave in the yarn ends and snip off any excess yarn.
