Big Twist Yarn Baby Blanket

If you have been following along with me over on Instagram, then you will know that I’ve been over-sharing the making of this easy crochet baby blanket pattern for a couple of weeks now.

While out of town, I stopped at a Joann Fabrics and snatched up some Big Twist yarn in a beautiful salmon color! I have been eyeing it up online for quite some time so as soon as I saw it in-store, I knew I needed it asap!

I also grabbed some other great colors (turquoise, snow, pigeon, and navy) so it would make for a colorful baby blanket.

Have a look at the fantastic colors below!

As of 2021, this yarn is no long available but Big Twist Classic will work just as well as the Premium.

The Stitches for This Baby Blanket

The quick and easy crochet blanket pattern is made up entirely of single & triple crochet stitches using a size J crochet hook which creates a fantastic bumpy texture.

This blanket is easy to crochet! Plus, the simplicity of only using two stitches makes it a great beginner blanket! I’ll link up a few tutorials below so you can go over the stitches in the design.

  1. Single Crochet
  2. Triple Crochet

  1. I was reading this pattern on Pinterest and it said click here for technique on how to weave in ends but when you click on it it says it doesn’t exist

    GORGEOUS. love the colors. I checked Joanns on line and I cannot find that yarn. I clicked on the Big Twist Premium but when I clicked on the colors, none were the names that you listed. Is that yarn still available?? Thanks!

    1. Hi Carla,

      I just did a quick google search and it looks like the premium line was discontinued. 🙁 I’d suggest Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice as a good substitute and they have many similar colors to chose from. 🙂
