Chunky Crochet Blanket Pattern: Jernie Blanket

A few of you may be wondering about the name of this chunky crochet blanket pattern. It was made for the wedding of a mate of mine and I’ve recently got into the habit of combining the names of the people who are getting married to give their blanket a name. For example the Langwell Blanket is Langer + Stanwell.

The Jernie Blanket? Jane + Bernie.

The wife of this couple is a huge fan of Aussie designer Gorman and a few years ago, Gorman released a collection of colour block scarves with funky pom pom edges. I wanted to do something similar and fell in love with this Lion Brand fisherman’s wool. I wouldn’t normally make a blanket in beige but I just loved this yarn and knew it would look amazing with brightly coloured pom poms on it.

You can use any combination of colours you like but I wanted to stick to something neutral yet a little bit funky.

What You Need 

Lion Brand Fisherman’s Wool (worsted weight; 100% Pure Virgin Wool; 8 oz/227 g; 465 yds/425 m): 7 balls in Oatmeal (MC) for blanket 

Cleckheaton Country Naturals 8 ply (85% Wool, 10% Acrylic, 5% Rayon; 1.76 oz/50 g; 105 yds/96 m): 3 balls in Picante (CC) for pom poms

US J/10 (6 mm) crochet hook

Yarn needle

Small Clover pom pom maker (optional) 

This stitch pattern creates a dense, thick fabric that almost looks knitted. It’s a great pattern for anyone who prefers a more solid weave from their crocheting. It’s also unbelievably warm and toasty, in fact I’m quite sad to have to give this blanket away. I spent a very lovely winter snuggled under it as I crocheted.

The pattern (with full instructions and video tutorial) is available as part of a Crochet Coach coach subscription – you can sign up here! There’s a 7-day free trial too.
