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.
