Chunky Yarn Blanket
If you love chunky yarn, love easy crochet stitches and want to work up a crochet blanket fast then this is the chevron pattern for you!! This chunky ripple pattern is an easy project that works up pretty quickly because of the easy stitches and bulky yarn.
I started this almost two years ago, and it has been sitting waiting to be shared! I could blame many things on this beauty of a chunky chevron blanket being unfinished, but it’s because it got lost in my yarn stash basket.
Yep, two years immersed under the yarn stash. I hope you finish it faster than me!
Learn more about the basic crochet stitch used and yarn below.
If you’re looking for more quick projects, then you might also like my post about free crochet patterns that use bulky yarn, too.
Make This Chevron Blanket With a Half Double Crochet Stitch
This blanket is a half double crochet chevron pattern, which is a little different from most of the other chevrons you may see. I previously had designed a single crochet chevron, which you may remember from before.
The reason I decided to use the half double crochet is the hdc stitch with the bulky yarn is because it works up so QUICK!
Learn more about the HDC stitch below:
Half Double Crochet (hdc):
- YO (yarn over) insert hook from front to back of the designated stitch, YO the hook and pick up a loop.
- YO the hook and pull back through all three loops on the hook.
You’ll find that this throw blanket is a great pattern to mindlessly watch Netflix with, carry with you anywhere or crochet up quickly if you’re in a time crunch because of the ease of the stitch. You’ll love it, promise!
The Yarn That’s Perfect for This Chunky Chevron Throw
To make this throw blanket (+ other blanket sizes too!), you’ll want to have Hometown Yarn by Lion Brand in Aspen Tweed, which is a beautiful neutral color to work with and goes with almost any decor! It comes in an 81 yard, 5 oz skein in a variety of colors to match any living room, nursery or space and pairs perfectly with a size 9 mm crochet hook.
This particular super bulky yarn is so soft (wool-free!) and can be found pretty easily at most craft stores and online too, which is excellent if you want to work on this asap!

Finishing: Fasten off yarn and weave in loose ends throughout the blanket with a yarn needle. You may need to block your blanket to get it to lay flat.
I added a few fringe tassels at each corner by cutting 4 12″ pieces of yarn. Fringe is optional and can be left out of the pattern. A tutorial on how to make fringe can be found “here“.
