This chunky crochet lapghan works up quick and easy. It has a bit of an open stitch, but with the chunky yarn, you can still find a nice level of warmth for your legs as you relax in your favorite chair.
It was my first time working with Red Heart Comfort Chunky and I loved it. It’s the same material as the regular comfort yarn, only it’s a bit thicker. So it works up quickly as well, which makes it great for blankets and such.
I made mine the size for a comfortable lapghan, but in a simple multiple of four, you can easily make this to any size you want. Make it to your own measurements, or use this blanket sizes chart to make it easy for you.
