Easy Chunky Blanket In Super Bulky Yarn Free Pattern

Sharing is caring!

The Nebbia Blanket crochets up quickly in one of my favorite yarns, Lion Brand’s Wool Ease Thick & Quick. This cozy blanket is made with a simple stitch pattern that’s an easy one row repeat.

Simple stitches and easy techniques are some of my favorite ways to design beautiful crochet blankets. A one row repeat over the entire blanket makes this a great option for relaxing evenings.

Cuddling up in a handmade blanket is the height of comfort in our homes. My kids love to snuggle under theirs with a good book to read. And the best part is when our cat chooses their blanket to sleep on.

Notes

  1. Ch 3 counts as a stitch, I highly recommend using a ch 3 alternative, here’s my favorite.
  2. Stitch multiple is an even number.

Adjustments

To crochet a smaller blanket, or larger blanket, start your foundation chain with an even number of stitches. You can adjust the number of chains by adding or subtracting in twos to my chain.

Continue the repeat row for a longer blanket. To shorten your blanket work less rows.
