Crochet a Blanket with One Cake!

Hi everyone! Thanks for dropping in! Recently I posted a video for a Knit Blankie using the Lion Brand's "I wanna make a blankie" yarn. The crochet version is now live! Instead of designing a pattern myself, I decided to use the patterns that are provided on the label. This way, when you purchase the yarn, you already have the pattern!

I purchased the Mizzie color and Lion Brand sent me the Zinnia and Calluna colors. You can purchase them from Lion Brand Yarns, select Walmart Stores or on

I still working on a Tunisian Blanket in the color Mizzie. Just like the Knit Blanket, I used a larger than recommended hook size. It's a perfect project for beginners. My blanket knit blankie measured 46 x 46". I didn't have a full cake for the crochet blankie so I can't say how big yours will measure! With the 10mm hook (instead of 9mm) My stitches were still fairly tight so if you wanted a larger blanket, go larger on your hook size.

A view commented with a question on using 2 cakes for a bigger blanket... I think that's going to be a nice sized blanket! Just work the first half until your cake is almost gone. Then start the decrease and attach new cake when needed!
