Easy Chenille Yarn Crochet Pattern – The Logan Blanket

Every once in a while, a super easy Tunisian crochet pattern is what we need don’t you think?

I purchased some of Lion Brand’s Chenille Appeal yarn without even knowing what I would make. I just knew I needed (ok, wanted) it in my yarn stash.

I quickly learned that chenille yarn is tricky.

I wanted a pattern with some stitch definition and that right there became quite the challenge.

I had every intention of designing a regular crochet pattern with this yarn, but after many hours of experimenting with different stitches, I just wasn’t happy.

So I broke out my trusty Tunisian crochet hooks and the first stitch I tried, I knew was the perfect one.

The Inspiration

Have you seen those beautiful and luxurious chenille throws at places like West Elm and Target?

I saved several pictures on my Pinterest inspiration board a couple of years ago of some chenille blankets. I knew a chenille blanket design was in my future. I think I was just waiting on the perfect yarn.

And Chenille Appeal is it.

Crocheting with Chenille Yarn

There are a few things to be aware of before you start crocheting with this yarn.

First, I did quite a bit of frogging while experimenting with different stitches and this yarn did not hold up well to that. I had to cut off quite a bit because it was starting to come apart.

Secondly, it’s very easy to miss stitches, especially on your beginning Tunisian foundation row where you have to bring up a loop in the back bump.

For the foundation row, I made sure to count as I went, so I wouldn’t miss any stitches. You can do this as you go, or count the loops on your hook before you do the Return Pass.

And lastly, this yarn is obviously pretty slippery, which means it was easy for stitches to slip off the hook. Several times I either accidentally skipped a stitch or loops came off my hook and I had to start the row all over.

So although this Tunisian crochet pattern is labeled as a beginner pattern, using this type of yarn for a beginner might be a little frustrating.

The Logan Blanket

The Logan blanket is made with the softest, comfiest, and most luxurious chenille yarn. It can be difficult to get stitch definition with this type of yarn, but whipping it up with the Tunisian simple stitch creates a bit of a waffle look to it. It’s similar to the chenille blankets bought at places like the Pottery Barn and West Elm.

Foundation row Ch 150

Pull up a loop in the back bump of the 2nd ch from hook and each remaining ch, RetP. (150 loops on hook)

Row 1 TSS in each stitch across, working the last st as for Lts, RetP (150 loops on hook)

Rows 2 and on repeat row 1 until desired length or until your 6th skein of yarn is used
