## Bernat Blanket Big Wheel

Introducing the Bernat Blanket Big Wheel Crochet Afghan. This is a Michaels Store exclusive pattern that can be found only on their website. The link provided will take you there.

This afghan consists of Bernat Blanket Yarn that is chenille and really thick. To make this generous 50″ x 60″ generous size afghan, you will need a total of 6 balls of the 300 gram balls.

You can substitute the Bernat Blanket with Bernat Baby Blanket as the yardage and weight are the same. This will give you far more colour options too.

I am making an assumption that if you wanted to make this afghan 3 colours instead of 2. You could most likely get 2 balls of 3 colours instead of 3 balls of 2 colours. Of course, if you want to make your afghan bigger, you just have to add more yarn.

This afghan is very similar to the Catherine Wheel Stitch. There’s a slight change in the number of chains between the centre points and the single crochets. It’s extended by 1 extra chain so it will sit properly.

Due to this blanket being made of Bernat Blanket Yarn, this will go super quick to make.

I thank yu so much. You are the only one who has taught me so so much. I am so glad I found your sight

What would be good deminsions/stitch count to make this a baby afghan?

My rows are seeming to pucker a lot. I have tried to hold the yarn very loose, but it still seems to pucker. Does it stop puckering once you get further along ? I have started over twice after row 3.

I would like to make this afghan a lot wider. I saw in an earlier post that it was 10 +7. So would I just add multiples of 10 + 7(at the end)? Or multiples of 17?

You just count to 10 over and over until it’s wide enough, then add 7 extra chains. 🙂

Jeanne, Thanks so much for the multiples information. I am going to modify this for a baby blanket using the couples favorite Hockey team colors.

I can’t get to the pattern. I even went to Michael’s website and had trouble getting the instructions to come up. Help, please I would like to make this as a Christmas gift for my niece. Thanks!

Ok, so I’m lost. I was at Michaels today and they had needle size N (10mm) and L (8mm). Not a N (9mm) in sight in any hook/brand. The yarn says use L (8mm) and the pattern on their site said N (9mm) so I just bought both hooks, LOL. Any guidance on which one to use? Thanks!

Could this pattern be worked in 4 ply yard with a I needle?

If I wanted to make this smaller…for a baby…what would the chain multiples be?

i made a diagram for the same reason, as i see it its multiples of 10 +7.hope it makes sence for you.

if you click on the name of the pattern at the beginning of this article (its a link) it comes right up to the download site (the michaels link is just below that

I loved the Bernat Blanket Big Wheel Afghan but the link you provided got me to Michael’s but I couldn’t find the free pattern. Can you help me out?
