Chunky crochet blanket free pattern yarn ideas

To make this a super quick project, I went with the super chunky yarn the chunkiest yarn available in my stash, and a large crochet hook! I tell you what, it is super thick. Oh, And I matched it with a 15 mm crochet hook!

To make this a super quick chunky blanket, you need to use bulky yarn or jumbo-weight yarn! Any yarn labeled #6, #7, or #8 should do the magic. I used Hobbii Bungee Mini, Bulky, a #7 weight yarn. Bernat Blanket Yarn, Lionbrand super Bulky yarn #7 = Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick, Touch of Alpaca, I like Big yarn, chenille yarn are few examples that can be used.

Lionbrand Chunky Yarns #6 = I Wanna Make a Blankie Yarn, Home town.

You can combine two #5 weight yarns together. Make sure to check the gauge and adjust the hook size or yarn weight appropriately.
