Chunky Crochet Baby Blanket with Pattern!

Posted on Posted in Free Patterns

If you’ve ever wanted to whip a soft, big and lovely baby blanket, this pattern is PERFECT for you!

I love making baby blankets for friends who have just had a baby. I came up with this pattern to decrease the time it took me to make a blanket and I have loved the result every single time.

Things you’ll need:

  • size Q crochet Hook
  • chunky yarn (this one came from walmart; Bernat Brand)


First, you begin by chaining 52.

ROW 1 – (sc) in the back loop of the second chain from the hook and continue all the way down. Ch 1

ROW 2 – (sc) in the back loop of every chain all the way down. Ch 1

ROW 3-35 Continue row 2 until you have reached the end.

Leave a tail long enough to weave in and voila! You’ve just made a thick, soft and comfy blanket in LESS than an hour’s time!

It’s really that easy!

This is perfect for making a quick baby shower gift. Or you could increase your chain stitches and make yourself a nice throw for the sofa or even a comforter! I am contemplating a rug in the VERY NEAR future for our living room!

The same exact pattern is worked a little differently and can allow you to make a beautiful chunky crochet shrug!

  1. I make baby quilts, preemie hats and baby hats for our local hospital. This will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for sharing.

      1. If I choose to do an adult size blanket with this pattern, should I be ok as long as I start with any even number in my chain?

  2. the pattern for the baby blanket could do double duty as a scarf. Of course, not as wide but the stitch is versatile. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I want make a throw blanket for my couch, but with the chain do you work on the width or length. Would it’s be the width because of the type of pattern?

    1. Yes, your chain count is the total width of your project! However, if you wanted the ridges to go in a different direction, you could make it with your chain count being the length of your project and then you continue to add yarn until you reach your desired width.

  4. I’m a bit confused when you say go through the back loop. Am I reading too much into it? Ha Or is it just like normal going back into one of your chain loops?

    1. No worries! When you’re looking at the top of your stitch you will see a “v”. The back loop would be farthest away from you. So instead of inserting your hook underneath both loops or the “v”. You would insert your hook into the back loop only. Does that make more sense? I hope I didn’t confuse you even more LOL!

  5. I love this blanket and would love to try to crochet. Is this a good project for a beginner? I would like to make one for our bed that would be about twice as big as this one but I’m unsure how much yarn I would need (a lot!). You said you used 3 skiens on tgis blanket, how many yards per skien were they? Thank you!

    1. Hello, Gina!

      This is a GREAT project for a beginner! Depending on your bed’s size you could easily use up to 12 skeins. Now, Bernat comes in the jumbo skeins now. You can usually find them at your local craft store. For a queen bed I would guesstimate approximately 12-18 skeins depending on how tightly you crochet. If you have any other questions or issues please let me know!
