How to Crochet a Super Chunky Blanket

Those trendy jumbo knit blankets seem to be everywhere lately. But what I haven’t seen is a crochet version of them. So when I saw the jumbo yarn on sale, I knew I had to make a crochet chunky blanket. So today I am going to show you how to crochet a super chunky blanket with this free pattern and video. 

This is a free pattern but if you would like to have an ad free printable pdf they are available to download on my Etsy and Ravelry for only $3.

About the pattern

This super chunky blanket is the perfect blanket for snuggling up on the couch on a cold day. It is crocheted with super chunky yarn. The size is about 48 inches by 55 inches. But to make it bigger you can add more rows, you will just need more yarn. 

 

To make a blanket with stripes I alternated 4 rows of main color and 3 rows of accent color and then ended with 4 rows of the main color. 

If you would rather follow a video here is the tutorial. 

Pattern 

Ch 29 

Row 1: In the third chain from the hook sc. Ch 1 skip a ch sc in the next stitch. Repeat this across. You should end with a sc in the last chain. Turn. 

Row 2: Ch 2. Sc in the first ch 1 space of the last row. Ch 1 skip a stitch, sc in the next ch space. Repeat across. When you get to the end be sure to place your last sc in the ch 2 space from the previous row, this will keep your edges straight.

Row 3-32: Repeat row 2. 

Finish off and weave in ends with fingers.
