Snuggly Buggly Blanket Yarn

Blogged under Charity Crafting,Fiber Fun,Projects in Progress by Tammy on Monday 5 March 2012 at 5:49 am

Technically, my February donation drive is over (since it’s March), but I have a few weeks left before I bring the donated items over to Okeechobee, so I thought I’d try to squeeze in one last baby afghan. During a recent (and unplanned) yarn purchase, I picked up a skein of Bernat Baby Blanket yarn. It was on sale, and I was in the mood to try something new. Let me tell you; this is one hunk of a skein of yarn. It is 10.5 ounces (300 grams) and 258 yards. It is also super chunky weight, so my hope is that I can make a small granny square style baby ghan out of just one skein. I hope…I hope…it will be enough. I’ve learned that sometimes chunky yarn can be deceiving as far as how much you think you have versus how far it will go in a project.

I’m using a size N crochet hook, and the thickness of this yarn took me a little while to get used to. However, I’m getting more comfortable with it, and boy, howdy, I am so falling in love with this yarn. It is so, so, so SOFT! And it is squishy, and well, as we say around here, “It is snuggly buggly.” Yes, it is made in China (yeah, bummer!), and yes, it is 100% polyester, but it’s washable, and I am now a blanket yarn convert.

    Blanket yarn. I’ll have to go check that out. It looks like the bulk would make a project go fast as well.

    Yes, it worked up fast, though I ended up having to get another skein. Even one this large was not enough to get a 30 inch blanket out of.

    How do I get the pattern for crochet.

    That’s just a granny square pattern. Google “granny square” and you will find lots of instructions for it. It’s very common.
