Chunky Crochet Blanket pattern
I normally prefer knitting to crocheting but when the time comes to make a bulky afghan, I firmly believe that crochet is the way to go. This pattern is very simple and perfect for beginners. (Or, in my case, not-so-beginners who can only do very simple projects while riding in the car or they will get carsick.) It works up pretty quickly and looks lovely and is “nice and squashy”, according to my 10 year old, when it’s done.
Mine ended up being about 76″x 50″.
