This chunky crochet blanket pattern makes a perfect timeless baby gift, but once you feel how soft it is, there's no way you won't want to make one for yourself too! It's chunky. It's delicate. It's modern. It's classic. What more could you ask for in an afghan? Yes, it also feels like it's made of clouds!
I love how this chunky blanket in the pictures below was made using creme yarn, because it allows the texture to really stand out, don't you think? What's more, it makes the ultimate, timeless baby gift. But watch out, once you feel how soft it is, there's no way you won't want to make one for yourself too!

For this project you will need: HOOK: 5 mm hook or size H hook for the US YARN: All the scrap yarn colors were worsted weight yarn 4 ply US, 10 ply AU Also the Off white color I used in between as well. I was able to get 10 rows of Off white before I had to change to a new skein. I used 2 and a 1/2 skeins of it, but I didn’t make a border. If you wish to, then I would grab a third. I didn’t want to use much of this color because it's a scrap yarn afghan and don't want you to have to go get more yarn. About the color pattern Since this pattern uses scrap yarn, I won't be telling you which colors to use. I used this color wheel to help me organize my color choices. I've never been a fan of the mixed color of scrap yarn afghans so I decided to do mine in a more organized fashion starting with my Maroons, Reds, Oranges, Browns, Yellows, Golds, Greens, Blues, Purples, Pinks and back to the beginning of the color list. Feel free to go with what feels right to you. This Jagged Scrap yarn afghan is made using a stitch I discovered while playing around with yarn. I don't know why all my discovered stitches mostly use two stitches to create and this one is no different. Lol. But other than the butterfly stitch this one is surely the most easiest one to recreate! Let me take you step by step on how to make this stitch so you can use it in making your own scrap yarn afghan to use up some of your left over wool.
This Snow Queen Blanket is the perfect pattern to make for the cold winter months. It's made using bulky yarn, so not only is it warm and cozy to use, but it works up quickly, as well. The lacy shells of this crocheted afghan give it a light and delicate look despite the bulky yarn. You'll feel like a queen as you sit in your living room watching the snow fall.
