I was gifted a few balls of Blanket yarn, it is a chunky chenille type yarn. Too thick to feed through a Chunky Knitting machine. It is a nice squishy, smooshy acrylic yarn. Most people seem to use it for baby blankets.
I made some hats. Stockinette, a crochet and a different style stockinette. 3 hats, all from a 350 gm ball with enough left over for a pom pom.
All 50 cast on stitches/chains.
10 mm needles and crochet hooks.
