Blanket Yarn Free Crochet Patterns

Blanket yarn free crochet patterns for clothing, amigurumi, homeware and more! You can use this big yarn to make so much more than baby blankets! But be warned, when you start using blanket yarn, it’s pretty hard to stop. Your projects will work up quicker than usual and will feel amazingly soft too.

What is blanket yarn?

Blanket yarn is super bulky, weight 6 yarn. Its super soft and squishy and when you start crocheting with it it becomes highly addictive! The big baby blanket yarn usually comes in 100g or 300g skeins and is available in a huge range of solid or variegated colours by lots of different brands. The recommended crochet hook for this yarn is an 8mm but it works nicely with a 9mm or 10mm too.

What can I crochet with blanket yarn?

Blanket yarn is not just for blankets! You can use the super squidgy yarn to make lots of crochet projects including toys, clothes and home decor. Blanket yarn is super popular at the moment for amigurumi, so much so I have a whole page dedicated to just blanket yarn amigurumi patterns!
