Chunky Ribbed Crochet Blanket

I have been a bit slow on the blogging front lately, it’s been a hectic time and then my laptop got sick, so had to try and  get it resurrected ! So I’m back with a post on crochet …..

I was asked to crochet up a chunky blanket and was given 6 balls of James C. Brett Marble Chunky.  They wanted a simple pattern and nothing fussy hhhmmmm.

Just in time for those colder months coming our way.

This was the result …

If you want to give it a try here’s a little recap of what I did ….

Yarn; 6 x 200g balls of Marble Chunky ( MC14) its kinda a very rich red wine colour
Hook; 6mm

I chained 210 (UK Terms)
R1: HTR, turn and chain 2
R2: HTR in the back loop and continue this all the way across (this gives it the ribbed look)
R3 to end: repeat R2 until you are happy with the size.

Border: I did a row of double crochet, then a row of trebles and a final row of crab stitch ( which is double crochet worked backwards , this gives a lovely effect & I use it lots on borders)
