This beginner friendly crochet blanket can be made in just a few hours. The Lickety Split Blanket uses the linen stitch (moss stitch), Jumbo Weight Yarn and a 25 mm (S) crochet hook.
Disclaimer: The yarn used for this project was given to me by Yarnspirations.
Last week I received a surprise box of beautiful yarn from Yarnspirations. When I opened it up there were 2 giant skeins of Bernat Blanket Extra Thick yarn and I decided I needed to use it straight away.
I sat down that very same day and crocheted this blanket using it, while watching Netflix.
The Bernat Blanket Extra Thick yarn is beautifully soft and the fabric it creates it’s wonderfuly warm. The finished throw blanket fits perfectly over my legs and feet as I sit on the couch with my feet up in the reclined position. There isn’t all that extra blanket hanging out over the edges, it is a perfect fit.
I personally love that there is some weight to the blanket (1.3 pounds to be exact). I enjoy the sense of comfort and the feeling of safety a weighted blanket provides (I have a proper weight blanket that I use for my anxiety symptoms). The weight helps me feel grounded (if that makes any sense).
My children are both trying to convince me this is their new blanket…but I am really loving the softness and the finished squish of the yarn too.
Is it wrong that I don’t want to part with it? I think I’ll let them use it if I’m not 😉 but this blanket will not be disappearing into one of their rooms!
