How to Crochet a Super Chunky Blanket
Good day, Crafties! I hope you all are doing well! As promised, I'm bringing you the written instructions for how I made the blanket featured in my last YouTube vlog. Now I know what you're going to say: " Infiniti...it's nearly July... one of the hottest months of the year..." And you would be correct, however, there are times where the subterranean wonderland I call my studio gets downright frosty.

For this project, I used three squishy skeins of Bernat Blanket Extra Thick yarn and it made a blanket that was 32" x 35" and consisted of 15 rows.
This yarn is classified as a 7 weight and is made of 100% polyester. The gauge for this yarn calls for a 25mm ( US 50) crochet hook or knitting needles. Two rows of 2 single crochet will give you a swatch measuring 10cm x 10cm or 4" x 4".
Each skein of Bernat Blanket Extra Thick also holds 72yds or 66m. You'll also want to have a large pair of scissors on hand because this yarn is thick.
For my project, I used a 35mm (US 70) crochet hook.
