Worlds Fastest Knitted Throw Blanket – Knitting Pattern

I love chunky yarn…. And I am working up to using that super super chunky stuff in winter as a challenge. But this was my need to come up with a super quick, easy afghan rug.


You may need to do a bit of a test square to make this square yourself. I tend to have a “relaxed” gauge, so you may need more rows to make each ‘square’ square.

I used:
5 balls grey super chunky yarn (colour 1)
5 balls green super chunky yarn (colour 2)
Since 10mm needles
Crochet hook
Grey DK (8ply) yarn

Cast on 20 stitches.
Stocking stitch 22 rows in colour 1. This made a square in my gauge. You may want to take the bottom corner of the knitting and fold it up to the needle line. When the cast on length matches the distance knitted, you have a square… Take a note of how many rows you did. You will need to do this many. (For me it was 22)
Change to colour 2. Stst the same number of rows.
Change to colour 1. Stst the same number of rows.
Change to colour 2. Stst the same number of rows.
Change to colour 1. Stst the same number of rows.
Cast off.

You need to make 3 “scarf” stripes like this. The other 2 alternate the colours.


2 alternate colour lengths:
Cast on 20 in colour 2. Stst 22 rows (or whatever number you are using)
Change to colour 1. Stst the same number of rows.
Change to colour 2. Stst the same number of rows.
Change to colour 1. Stst the same number of rows.
Change to colour 2. Stst the same number of rows.
Cast off.

Lay out the strips making sure the colours alternate in pattern.

Stitch the strips together using a bodkin and the DK yarn. It sits flatter than stitching with chunky yarn.


When stitched together you may want to block the project square. This is an optional step, but it will make things neater if you do.

Crochet a basic blanket stitch around the piece in the DK yarn.


The new owner of the throw…. However, he is an optional step for checking the size to block……..
