How to Make a Hand Knit Chunky Blanket

Making your very own hand knit chunky blanket blanket is a fun weekend project that doesn’t require any crazy or expensive tools. All you need is some yarn and your hands! You can even get creative and add some color to your blanket, just be sure that your chosen yarn is machine washable. This is especially important if you plan on giving the blanket as a gift because it will be washed often.

Getting started is super simple, just make a chain of about 40 or more stitches with your crochet hook. Then, starting at the end of the first row, insert your hook into the second stitch, and one-crochet in each subsequent stitch all the way down the entire chain. You can then repeat this process all the way across the entire blanket, ensuring that you have enough stitches to reach your desired size.

Once you’re finished, it’s time to bind off the stitches. To do this, take the two loops you have in your hand and pass the working yarn through both of those loops. Then, grab the loop that’s directly next to it, and again, pass the working yarn through both of those loops. This will create a small knot that you can then use to tighten up the last few stitches.

It’s not uncommon to make mistakes when knitting, whether you’re a beginner or a pro. Here are a few tips to help you resolve those mistakes before it’s too late.
