“I Wanna Make A blankie” Review

When I first saw this yarn I fell in love with it. I impulsed bought it and thought I’d give my opinion!

The skein is a massive 437 yard cake. It says it is a super bulky weight and can make either a knitted 42″x 42″ or a crochet 33″x 33″ blanket. The label came with a corner to corner pattern to make both.

I decided to go outside my comfort zone and learn how to crochet a C2C blanket. Crochet abbreviation makes about as much sense to me as nuclear fusion so I YouTube’d how. There are a lot to choose from and just pick one that makes the most sense to you! Corner to corner blankets are really awesome because they start slow with the increases on each row but once the decreases start, you are finished.

The yarn is so soft to work with. It was difficult and tense on my hands to hold it the normal way looped through my pinky and over my pointer. I found it easiest to just hold it over my pointer finger. Using a size N hook, you use the yarn fast!

Once I got halfway-ish I realized that one cake was not enough. I wanted a big squishy couch throw. One skein would be great for kids or babies but not so much for an adult. My blanket ended up being 50″x 53″.

Now lets talk about price. I bought my two skeins from Walmart and they were $19.98. On the Walmart website they are $19.58. If you go to the Lion Brand website they are $24.99.

There are only six colors to choose from – three variegated and three solid colors. I think more options would be awesome. Good news though, since it’s 100% polyester it is machine wash and dry.

Overall I really enjoyed working with this I Wanna Make a Blankie yarn. It was fun to do something a bit out of my normal. I would definitely use again!
