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.

    DIY Birdhouse ... or Bird Trailer

    by on October 6, 2017 - 0 Comments

    My family loves birds. My grandma and grandpa live in the hills between North and South Carolina, and when I call I always ask my grandparents what birds have been around. They usually have chickadees, wrens, cardinals, and tufted titmouses (which happen to be my favorite). My dad loves hummingbirds and has several feeders on […]

  • Crochet Wallets

    I’ve been looking for a new wallet for months. My old wallet is a particular favorite, picked up at Target because it was a small, blue pleather item with a black French Bulldog on it with red glasses and a bowtie. After a few years, however, the pleather is wearing off and the design is […]

    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 […]

    PVC is one of those materials that, like duct tape, that can be used for so many more things than the original intended purpose. I’ve seen PVC used for everything from cosplay to birdhouses. PVC is a strong material, easy to work with, and a hardy product that can withstand plenty of hard knocks and […]

    It’s difficult to find the right big bag — you don’t want anything too bulky, but you also don’t want a bag that’s flimsy – after all, you’re going to be carrying groceries, library books, craft projects, snacks, and the necessities and you need something you can depend on, that won’t snap or tear or […]
