Super Bulky 6 Yarn
If you aren’t used to using bulky weight yarn, it can take a bit to get used to. However, the results are worth it!
Because the yarn is so thick, it creates beautiful texture and it also allows you to finish crocheting a blanket faster. I used 8 skeins of Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick for my blanket and it took me less than a week (total) to complete it.
I enjoy working with the Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick because the final projects always come out squishy and fluffy. Other popular Super Bulky 6 yarns is the Bernat Blanket and Bernat Baby Blanket yarn. However, this yarn has a totally different texture and feel (like chenille) from the yarn I used for this project.
Crochet Waffle Stitch = Cozy Texture
On top of the super bulky 6 yarn, I wanted to make this chunky blanket with a stitch that I knew had a lot of texture: the waffle stitch!
Just like its name implies, the waffle stitch looks like a waffle! Using front post double crochets, it gives a 3rd dimension giving that extra squish.
If you are new to crochet, I think the waffle stitch is totally doable – it is only comprised of two basic crochet stitches: double crochets and front post double crochets. I even have a video tutorial below to help you through the stitches!
