Yarn Choice for an Easy Chenille Baby Blanket
I was very lucky to be gifted the yarn for this project by Cygnet Yarns.
They asked me if I’d like a quick play with some of the new range they were about to launch.
JellyBaby Chunky Chenille.
I love chenille yarn, and have designed a few projects using it like:
And even a crochet rose hair bobble
So even before I saw the yarn I knew I was going to like it.
Jellybaby Chunky Chenille
This new yarn is great, it’s branded with leopard print labels.
It’s a 100% super-soft Polyester yarn, which comes in 100gballg for about £3.80 ($4.50 USA).
Each ball has about 120 metres, or 131 yards of yarn.
This yarn is soft, so soft, and as its a chunky yarn it works up so quickly.
It comes in 12 great new colours, I love a grey, and when I was asked what colours I wanted for this project the 2 different greys instantly stood out to me, the Smokey grey in particular.
That coupled with the thoughts of a baby blanket the pink and green were going to be just perfect.
Stitch Choice for an Easy Chenille Baby Blanket
Stitch choice here was easy. If you’ve been following me for a while, I tend to find a stitch I love, then make a few different things with that stitch.
This blanket is no expectation. It’s made with the Suzette stitch which is what I used in my Parisenne cardigan too.
This stitch is made in a similar way to Blanket Stitch, using repeating single and double crochets.
And it really is as simple as that.
How long does it take to crochet a baby blanket?
This blanket took about 8-10 hours to make.
What do you need to make an easy chenille baby blanket?
You could use a 6.5mm for both of these rows if needed.
