Are you looking for an extra cozy blanket to crochet? If so, The Granite Crochet Throw Blanket is among one of the top coziest blankets ever!
This chunky throw blanket currently has a permanent spot on my couch because my kids ask for it every day to snuggle. It is that soft! This amazingly soft blanket uses only one stitch, which means it’s a great beginner project to work on. It also means it works up extremely fast since we are using chunky yarn.
This easy crochet pattern comes in eight different sizes if a throw blanket is not exactly what you’re looking for. I can’t wait for you to check out this simple throw pattern – it’s become a favorite around my house since I made it.
The Yarn That’s Perfect For This Crochet Throw!
I used Bernat Blanket Yarn from Yarnspirations, which happens to be one of the softest yarns imaginable! If you’d like to see more patterns with this yarn, check out my post about the blankets you can make with this cozy yarn. Another great advantage of Bernat’s Blanket Yarn is that it lacks all the fuzzy threads that get everywhere with other yarn types. This blanket stays beautiful even after multiple washes!
Once you work with this type of yarn, you’ll see that it is perfect for a blanket because it crochets up so fast and is soft! Bulky yarn equals faster crochet projects.
You need to try this yarn. Seriously, you won’t regret it. I found mine at my local craft store, and it was pretty inexpensive with a coupon or if you want you can check out Amazon too!
This Blanket Uses Only One Crochet Stitch!
This chunky crochet blanket pattern uses just one crochet stitch! Yep, one! I ended up using single crochets for the entire crochet pattern.
The single crochets make it a great beginner crochet pattern for a new crocheter to try. If you can single crochet, then you definitely can crochet this blanket!
You can do it! Promise! I worked this example up in less than two weeks in the evening and watching my daughter at swim practice.
