Crochet Chunky Tweeds Blanket

The Crochet Chunky Tweeds Blanket pattern is probably the faster blanket I’ve ever crocheted.  Those looking for a really quick project, I hooked this one up in just under 5 hours.

I found this different type of V-Stitch in one of my many crochet stitch books.  It creates a V by working the stitches in between the double crochets of the previous row and splitting them about.  Most commonly V-stitch is has a chain in between but this way creates a tighter fabric with fewer gaps.

My blanket is nice lap size or would be perfect for someone in a wheelchair.  It can be easily adjusted to any size you need by simply chaining an even number and off you go!  The Bernat Softee Chunky Tweeds yarn just makes it super quick and the tweeds are beautiful for home decor.

I am excited to be part of The Crochet Crowd team. I have been crocheting for 40+ years. I am also a big geek and an internet addict. I met Mikey and Diva Dan while onboard a crochet cruise in March 2015, and the rest is history. I hope to help inspire fellow crocheters.

    I used this pattern with an 80% acrylic & 20% wool blend chunky yarn. It turned out perfectly with a seashore theme based on the chosen colors. Thanks for the inspiration! I used 5 colors (14 balls+ 1 extra ball for the border).

      I love the V stitch it’s one of my favourites! For an afghan chain to the size you want, ending on an even number when done chaining.
