The chunky baby blanket

Within the last year, so many of our friends have had babies...
LOTS of babies!
This is my "go to" gift for all of them, 
a super chunky, super soft crocheted blanket.

This blanket works up really fast!
All you need is the largest size crochet hook (size Q) 
and three coordinating colors of yarn 
(about two large skeins of each color).

Start by making a simple chain of about 34" 
and then single crochet back through your chain.

When you get to the end of the chain, 
turn your work and chain one, 
then begin your single crochet stitch into the second
chain, work to the end of the row and repeat!

For any crochet beginners out there wanting to give this a try and are looking for some visual assistance with single crochet, I recommend trying YouTube. There are some very helpful crochet videos out there! Just search “single crochet” and follow along.

The only thing better than this chunky baby blanket
 is a chunky baby wrapped up in this blanket!
