FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Large Basket using Chunky Yarn

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Large Basket using Chunky Yarn

Sometimes things don’t go the way we expect and we have to improvise. Which is exactly what I had to do for this beautiful Chunky Basket. This is my latest project for the Funky with Chunky yarn event! Using Bernat Maker Big Yarn I created this very practical, very sturdy basket that is perfect for so much around the house. Great for storage, toys, organization, towels, you name it, one or more of these baskets will come in handy and look stylish, too!! I know for my house, this basket will be great for storing either yarn or Nasir’s toys. With Easter around the corner and the ‘safer at home’ quarantine ordinance in place, this would make a great kids basket. I am sure we will get a lot of use out of this home accessory. Be sure to follow along in today’s video tutorial or written pattern to make your own. Don’t have this yarn? Use tee shirt yarn or any variation of chunky yarn that’s size 5 to create this piece.

This video was not filmed in typical YARNutopia fashion. Because of the latest mandates imposed by the Governor regarding Safer At Home policies. My parents will be unable to travel. Therefore, this was filmed by yours truly. Enjoy!

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Two Stitch Grande Scarf

Understandably, I have been kind of *wrapped* up in myself for the past several months. Now that I am back in action, I promise I am not going to go all *gangsta wrap* or *Scarf-ace* crazy this month with the puns. Instead I *wrapped* it up with seven of the best *twisted* puns I could think of. I *stuck my neck out* to get these all done in time so all of you can enjoy the *fringe* benefits of my fun, free Punny Valentine’s Series! Starting with the Two-Stitch Grande Scarf! I hope you feel *wrapped* in my love when you make your very own! Please don’t call a *cowl play* on my puns quite yet, I am just getting started!!

Crochet Tutorial: The Cozy Colossal Blanket

Crochet Tutorial: The Cozy Colossal Blanket

Days turned into weeks, that turned into months, and I finally finished. My crochet hand and arms had a mega workout, but it was so worth the effort. This beautiful chunky yarn blanket using Red Heart Irresistible Yarn is one of the most beautiful pieces I have ever made for the home. Just in time for cold nights and winter winds, it truly is…irresistible.

This blanket is an investment piece. These chunky yarns are not skeins you are going to find in a bargain bin. They can be pricey. This is one of those projects where coupons and sales come in handy!! This is definitely a piece you want to have for your home or for a gift to someone VERY special. Side note–this blanket does shed, and I personally have not felted mine to reduce the shedding, but you can opt to do whatever you feel.

I made my project in stripes, but you can make it in a solid tone. It’s a striking blanket no matter what you decide to do. This afghan is extremely heavy–I would guess about 10-12 pounds, maybe more! This is a very trendy and popular piece that you find in high end home decor.

Crochet Tutorial: Chunky Beanie Hat with Pom

Every year I get orders for these chunky beanies with a pom. I ended up having to fill a few orders of this hat again this year, and I loved the color combination of this one. Some time ago, I had made a video tutorial on how to make this hat, but I never posted here to my blog. It’s a little bit overdue, but here are the instructions on how to create your very own chunky beanie.
