Chevron Chunky Yarn Blanket

Hi everyone!

If you guys would like to get your own yarn to make a blanket for yourself this pattern is one that could be fairly simple to follow along with! I will be making it myself soon! 🙂

I found the pattern on Melanie Ham’s website. Here is the link: http://melaniekham.com/easy-crochet-chevron-blanket-tutorial/ .

The blanket is made with thick, chunky yarn so it does not take as long to crochet as long as it would with regular sized yarn. If reading the pattern gets confusing there is a video where Melanie Ham explains and shows exactly how to do the blanket! To find the video don’t leave the page where the pattern is, just scroll down and the YouTube video will be down at the bottom of the page! Good luck and enjoy!

I will let you all know how my Chevron Chunky Yarn Blanket turns out when I am finished with it and I will post a picture of it on here as well.

Slightly Slouchy Beanie

This pattern is by Melanie Ham.

To watch the YouTube video tutorial click here: Slightly Slouchy Beanie.

Here are the written instructions for the Slightly Slouchy Beanie.

Begin with a slip knot.  Leave a long enough tail for weaving in.

Round 1: Ch 4, slip stitch (sl st) to form a circle

Round 2: Ch 2, 12 half double crochet (hdc) inside the circle, sl st (12 stitches total)

Note:The ch 2 does NOT count as a hdc when you are counting your round for THIS pattern as it “usually” would or could in other patterns. It was creating a little gap, so I made this adjustment 😉

Round 3: ch 2, (2 hdc, hdc 1 and repeat), sl st (18 stitches total)

Round 4: ch2, (2 hdc, hdc 2 and repeat) , sl st (24 stitches total)

Round 5: ch2, (2 hdc, hdc 3 and repeat), sl st (30 stitches total)

Round 6: ch2, (2 hdc, hdc 4 and repeat), sl st (36 stitches total)

Round 7: ch2, (2 hdc, hdc 5 and repeat), sl st (42 stitches total)

Round 8: ch2, (puff 9, 2 puff and repeat).  1 puff stitch in the last remaining stitch, sl st (46 stitches total)

– note… {puff 9 means puff stitch in 9 stitches and 2 puff means 2 puff stitches in the same stitch to increase.  see video}

Round 9: ch 2, 1 puff stitch in each stitch (do no slip stitch at the end of the round, just continue with your puff stitch)

Round 10-16 1 puff stitch in each stitch

Round 17: sc in each stitch all the way around (46 stitches)

Round 18: (sc 5, sc decrease and repeat) Ending with the sc 5 (41 stitches)

Round 19: (sc 5, sc decrease and repeat) Ending with the sc 5 (36 stitches) Try on hat in order to make any adjustments.

Round 20!: sc in each stitch all the way around.  tie off. weave in ends.

hdc: Yarn over, insert hook, yarn over, pull yarn through stitch, yarn over, draw yarn through all 3 loops on hook

sc: insert hook, yarn over, pull through, yarn over, draw through 2 loops

puff stitch: yarn over, insert hook, yarn over and pull through, yarn over, insert hook, yarn over and pull through, yarn over and draw through the 5 loops on the hook at once.

sc decrease: insert hook, yarn over, pull through, insert hook in NEXT chain, yarn over, pull through, yarn over, draw through 3 loops on your hook (this essentially makes 2 stitches 1 stitch)
