Hey guys! I’m back today with a really fun DIY – this GIANT BLANKET. I’ve been making a few of these this past month and I wanted to share a bit of the experience with you. I filmed the whole process which you can see in my Youtube video below. 

What You’ll Need:

Loops and Threads Free Spirit Yarn (I found this particular type to be the best) – it took about 5 bundles to create a modest living room throw, 9 of them to create a blanket to drape over my Queen sized bed. I got my yarn at Michael’s. 

25mm or 35 mm crochet hook (looks questionable but very helpful!)

An afternoon, some Netflix (takes about 4-6 hours depending on the size of your blanket!)


Some Tips: 

 – Try your best to keep the tension the same. The more even, the better! 

– The yarn is quite forgiving, so hiding knots its quite easy

– Always buy more skeins than you think you’ll need – you can always return the unopened ones later. 

– To get the most out of your yarn – double stitch crochet (like I showed in the video) is the way to go!




And there you have it, how to crochet a GIANT blanket – let me know if you decide to try this! 

Love Always,
