Easy Crochet Blanket Tutorial

Learn to make an EASY and QUICK crochet blanket. I was totally surprised at how fast this afghan worked up! This tutorial uses just two stitches, chain and half double crochet, making it a great blanket for beginners crocheters.

Using a thick chunky yarn, like Bernat blanket yarn, speeds up the process. The thicker the yarn, the faster the blanket will be finished.

A hot chocolate bomb is a fun new way to enjoy a mug of hot cocoa. Simply place the bomb in a mug. Pour piping hot milk on top and watch as the bomb melts exposing the ingredients inside.
