This might be the fastest, most cozy blanket that you have ever crocheted! And you’re going to love it’s corner to corner (C2C) design!
A little while ago, while shopping at my local craft store, I came across a 35 mm crochet hook! I couldn’t resist, and then, naturally, had to buy the yarn to go with it.
A few years ago now I started seeing blankets made with a jumbo weight yarn. I was instantly drawn to them! I love the boldness of them and the chunky texture, not to mention how cozy they looked!
I knew the roving wool yarns would not be a good match for my household though with four young kids and an energetic dog also calling it home. But I was quite excited when I discovered the Bernat Blanket Big yarn at my local Michaels store.
Bernat Blanket Big:
The Bernat Blanket Big yarn is a 100% polyester yarn which means I can wash and dry as needed. And I don’t have to worry about it fraying!
The Two Hour C2C Throw is an easy design. The final blanket measures approximately 54 x 54 inches, although with more yarn you can make it as big as you would like!
The design is made up of single crochet stitches that are worked in the back loop only.
For the decrease rows you will need to work single crochet two and three stitches together.
The end result is so cozy!
