Crafting Comfort: A Heartfelt Tale of Inspiration Behind the Snuggly Blanket Pattern

This cozy crochet pattern was designed with love for my sister-in-law, Ly when she was pregnant with her first child, my niece, Thalia.

During this time, Ly sought a comforting companion – a cuddly blanket to relax with on the couch. Choosing a thick, super-soft yarn and infusing the design with rich texture, I aimed to create a piece that she’d never want to put down.

This pattern is more than stitches and loops; it’s a warm embrace crafted for special moments, making it the ideal project for spreading love and comfort to your own cherished ones or those in need of a soothing touch

Yarn Details: Unraveling the Perfect Blend for Cozy Bliss

For Ly’s Blanket, I sought a yarn that would be irresistibly soft and luxuriously thick, creating the ultimate cuddle-worthy masterpiece for my sister-in-law.

Bernat Blanket emerged as the perfect choice, meeting all the criteria and capturing Ly’s heart with its enchanting Sailor’s Delight colorway, a selection she adored.

Pattern Notes:

Read all pattern notes, instructions, and other provided details carefully before starting the project to make sure you understand everything.  It could save you hours & a lot of headaches!

  • Make a swatch that measures at least 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches using the stitch provided under the Gauge Section. If your swatch matches the gauge, then you are all set to start the project. If the gauge is wrong, you might need to change your crochet hook – increase your hook size if your stitches are smaller & decrease your hook size if your stitches are larger.
  • All measurements given are unblocked and measured flat pre-wear and pre-seaming as fabric pieces may stretch during/after blocking, wearing, and seaming.
  • Provided measurements are as exact as possible, but are given as approximates. This is because yarn variances, crochet tension & individual technique might give variations in the result, which changes from person to person.
  • All color changes in this pattern are made using the slip-stitch (i.e. add the new yarn color with a slip-stitch).
  • Care Instructions: Hand wash & lay flat to dry or follow instructions on the yarn label.

Easy Chunky Crochet Blanket Pin 1


This pattern uses the “knit-like” stitch – a two row repeat in which one row you hdc in the 3rd loop and in the other row you hdc into the blo.  This creates a ribbing effect.

With color A, chain the number of chains needed to create the length of the blanket you desire per the chart provided, plus 3 chains.

Row 1: Hdc in 4th ch from hook (counts as your first hdc st) and in each ch across.

Row 2:  Ch2 (does not count as a st), turn work, hdc in the 3rd loop across to last st, hdc under the top two loops of the last st (this should be the first hdc of row 1 that counted as a st)..

Reference: How to Work in the 3rd Loop

How to crochet in the 3rd loop step 2

Row 3:  Ch2 (does not count as a st), turn work, hdc in blo across to the last st, hdc (as normal, ie. under both front & back loops).

Row 4: Ch2 (does not count as a st), turn work, hdc in the 3rd loop across to last st, hdc (as normal, ie. under both front & back loops).

Repeat rows 3 and 4 until fabric measures the width you desire per the provided chart.

Bind Off & Weave in ends.

TIP:  When the right (textured) side is facing you, work in blo.  When the flat back is facing you, work in 3rd loop.


Attach color B using a slp-st (the easiest place to do this is in a corner) 

*Sc in the  next 3 sts, spike st, sc in the next 3 sts*  Repeat from * to * around the entire blanket.

NOTE:  When stitching around the rough edges it does not matter specifically where you place the stitches as there is no particular stitch count.  Simply place the stitches where possible.  For the spikes, go down about 1-inch from the top edge, but try to keep them similar in length with the spikes produced on the clean edges
