Chunky Icelandic Blanket (Free crochet pattern)

Chunky Icelandic Blanket (Free crochet pattern)

Want to try a new crochet stitch but don’t want to spend the time learning one that’s too complicated for a simple project? Look no further – we’ve got you covered with a dream project: the Chunky Icelandic Blanket from Mama In A Stitch. It uses the Lemon Peel stitch, which alternates single and double crochet. Sounds great, right? It also creates a great, cozy texture, perfect for winter gear, and in this case, the warmest, snuggliest blanket imaginable.

While the crochet pattern is available for free on Mama In A Stitch, there’s also a PDF pattern available via the Etsy shop. You’ll also find (for free) the blanket sizing guide which will help you determine how much yarn to purchase to complete your own chunky Icelandic blanket. You’ll need to make sure you’ve got a bigger crochet hook than you’d normally use (which is what helps create the blanket’s unique texture). The pattern recommends a size “P”. You’ll also need a tapestry needle, scissors, and at least 6 skeins of wool yarn (recommended: Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick, or something similar).

The pattern has plenty of helpful photos to guide you through the process, but once you get the hang of alternating the stitches, the pattern’s a breeze. And when you’ve completed the blanket, you can add whatever little finishes you like, such as tassels or pom-poms on the corners, or even fringe if you prefer.

You can upload pictures of your completed project to Facebook or Instagram and tag @mamainastitch, who enjoys seeing the different takes on her chunky Icelandic blanket. The blanket would make a perfect Christmas present or addition to a guest room, living room, or camping trip.

If the Chunky Icelandic Blanket is calling to you, you can find the free pattern (or the ad-free PDF for a minimal fee) at Mama In A Stitch — where you can also find the blanket sizing guide.

    Try These Knee Highs On For Size (free crochet pattern)

    by on December 8, 2017 - 0 Comments

    I always get really excited when I find knee highs. There’s something about long socks that makes me feel fancier — and they keep you warmer, especially if they’re under jeans. Cold jeans are the worst. It has been more difficult to find thick, comfy knee highs of late, but I discovered the other day […]

    I’ve been intimidated by clothing patterns for a long time. I’m better at smaller projects, like scarves, hats, or purses. But I’ve always wanted to try making my own sweater. Snuggling into a warm piece of clothing you made yourself sounds divine. Searching through Pinterest, I managed to find several shrug type sweaters for crocheters […]

    What is it about capes that makes everything feel more mysterious and magical? I’ve always loved capes, ever since I was a tiny kid growing up in the wild woods of Tennessee. As I grew up I wondered why more people didn’t take advantage of these cozy better-than-coats options. A friend of mine made me […]

    If you live anywhere near cold weather, you know the unpleasant feeling of slipping into a cold seat. No matter how many layers you have on, your back gets chilly, your legs get clammy, and your whole body tenses at the cold. Little children may not realize how cold they are, but the rest of […]

    I remember when the beanie with a brim became popular. I wanted one so badly, but I wasn’t able to get one until college, and by then the fad had died down. Imagine my surprise and delight, then, when I discovered that these hats are making a comeback! I’ve spotted them in stores from Wal-Mart […]
