An Easy Chunky Crochet Blanket Pattern – The Cora Blanket

An Easy Chunky Crochet Blanket Pattern – The Cora Blanket

Introducing the Cora Blanket, and easy (and free) chunky crochet blanket pattern using Lion Brand’s Hue + Me yarn.

I don’t work with thick wool yarn much and instead usually tend to navigate towards cotton, acrylic, and some blends. But after working with Lion Brand’s Hue + Me yarn I can officially say I get the hype.

I experimented with a ton of different stitches and stitch combos and they all had incredible definition.

I finally landed on a stitch combo that I used on the border of The Sara Blanket. I fell in love with how it created an almost waffle-like texture, but wasn’t a yarn eater like a basic crochet waffle stitch tends to be.

Chunky Crochet Blanket Pattern

Usually, when creating a pattern I have some sort of design inspiration. Either something I saw in a store or online.

But this time I just sat down with a few different sized hooks, a skein of Hue + Me, and started experimenting.

The Stitches

As I mentioned, I ended up using the same stitch combo as I did for the border of the Sara Blanket.

It gave this blanket amazing texture, drape and is an easy pattern a beginner can follow.

Here’s a video tutorial showing how to do the stitch.

The Colors + The Yarn

I used Hue + Me yarn, a collaboration between Lion Brand and Two of Wands. This yarn has received rave reviews from both crocheters and knitters and I can see why.

It’s soft, easy to work with and you just can’t beat the array of colors.

There are more colors launching in December, so stay tuned for those!

I chose Desert, the perfect neutral color that easily matches the decor in every room of my house. Right now it’s draped over our couch and I love how it looks.

The Pattern

The Cora blanket uses a chunky, soft yarn and works up very quickly. By alternating stitches in the front loop only and back loop only, it gives the blanket a waffle look texture.

The entire blanket is made using the same stitch pattern, so it’s the perfect easy blanket to work on while sitting and watching your favorite movie or shows. It’s one of those meditative stitches that doesn’t take much brainpower.

You’ll love snuggling up with this blanket on a cold night!
