Cozy at Home CAL 2022

For the Cozy Home Throw Blanket, you will need Super Bulky Weight Yarn [6] and an 8 mm (M) crochet hook. I used the two Caron Anniversary Cakes that I picked up last year at Michaels for my project. The color I used is called Sundae Fun-Day (20005). You can substitute if you’d like though, Bernat Softee Chunky is also a great yarn for this project.

This is the first time I’ve ever made a blanket using Super Bulky Weight Yarn and I can’t believe how fast it was to crochet! I had a finished blanket in no time using the Caron Anniversary Cakes.

Special Stitches

TIP: The bobble we use in this blanket is created by working 5 treble stitches (to the last yarn-over of each treble stitch) all in a single chain space. This is the same as a tr5tog being crocheted all in a single space. 

Bobble (bo)

Working in front of the sts on the working row, *Yarn over the hook 2 times. Insert your hook into the specified ch1sp and yarn over the hook. Pull up 1 loop. (Yarn over the hook and pull through 2 of the loops on your hook) twice**. Work from * to ** 5 times. Yarn over the hook and pull through all 6-loops to complete the stitch.

Treble (tr)

Yarn over the hook 2 times. Insert your hook into the specified stitch, or ch-sp and yarn over the hook. Pull up 1 loop. You now have 4 loops on the hook. Yarn over the hook and pull through 2 of the loops on your hook. You now have 3 loops on your hook.  Yarn over the hook and pull through 2 of the loops on your hook.  You now have 2 loops on your hook.  Yarn over the hook and pull through the remaining 2 loops on your hook to complete the stitch.

How to Change Your Yarn

Notes:

  • stitch multiple is 12 + 6
  • The turning ch 2 does NOT count as a stitch. This means the first hdc of the row following a turning ch 2 will be worked in the first st (which also has the ch 2).
  • When we work a bobble in the ch1sp from 2 rows below, we skip the ch1sp in the working row. 
  • All stitches other than the bobble stitches are worked in the current row.
  • If you want to substitute for a different yarn, simply chain your foundation to the width you’d like it to be and subtract 6. Then take that new number and divide by 12. If it isn’t a whole number don’t worry. Take the closest whole number to it, multiple by 12 and then add 6 to get the total stitches you need for your personal foundation chain length.
  • Here’s an example: Say you crochet 200 chains (because you are using Medium Weight Yarn instead), now take that number 200 and subtract 6. Now you have 194. Take 194 and divide it by 12. You get 16.1 and that’s ok. Use 16. Now take that 16 and multiple it by 12 and you get 192, and add 6 to get 198. Chain 198 to get close to that width you wanted. Since you just checked to make sure it works with the stitch multiple of 12+6. Hope this helps! I think it would look great in other weights of yarn and the Caron Cakes work great because you won’t have to keep changing your yarn colors to get the stripy effect.
