Cold Hands Warm Heart Chunky Blanket

When it comes to anything crocheted or knitted, chunky is better. The large loops, interwoven together, create a texture which just has to be touched. Chunky blankets are the ideal accompaniment for snuggling on a cold night, preferably with a wood fire!

To fulfil all your chunky blanket needs I’ve design the Cold Hands Warm Heart chunky blanket. It’s super chunky which makes it the perfect winter accessory. Made from merino wool yarn, it feels and looks soft and luscious. It looks that good that it’s hard to resist it when it’s draped over your sofa.

The great thing is that you can whip this throw up in a couple of hours – bring on the snuggling!

How to make it:

This pattern uses UK crochet terminology.

  1. Foundation Chain – Make a slip knot and then make 32 chains.
  2. Row 1 – Work a double crochet into the first chain from the hook, then form a chain (this is the first stitch of the row. Then work a treble into each stitch. At the end of the row you’ll have 32 stitches. Turn.
  3. Row 2 – Double crochet into each stitch 32 times.  Turn.
  4. Repeat rows 1 and 2 another 12 times so that at the end you have 26 rows.
  5. Fasten off and weave in the ends. Because this yarn is so big the best way of doing this is with your fingers.

Super dooper, easy peasy! How did you go? Let me know in the comments below. I’d love to see a photo of your Cold Hands Warm Heart throw – share a photo on the Homelea Lass facebook page or tag @homelealass on Instagram.

    This is a beautiful blanket but I have one question. I see the chain paired with the doc at the first of row 1 but wondered if you made any chains at the end of the rows when turning. Thanks in advance. ?

  6. Gail prentiss says:

    How many do you chain after the first double crochet at the beginning of the first row and do you chain any when turning at the end of rows?
    I can’t wait to make this beautiful toasty throw!
    Thanks!

    Hi Gail,

    It’s lovely to hear from you! 🙂

    To make the first stitch of the first row you do a double crochet and then 1 chain. This forms the first stitch and I do it instead of a turning chain (it looks heaps better). You don’t need to do any turning chains in this pattern.

    Happy crocheting!

    With love, Lynda.
