Bulky yarn is one of my favorites to work with – it works up fast, creates a nice and soft structure, and it’s very warm and comfy. I’ve seen many amazing designs for this particular kind of material, but bulky knitted blankets are definitely first on my list. There is something soothing about making a squishy big blanket, no matter if you are working with a crochet hook or knitting needles.

Such a blanket can be a lovely baby shower gift or an accessory that will change your living room. Wavy patterns are easy to make, even for beginners, and work well with two or more colors of yarn. Try it! Take a look at the examples below and search for links to free patterns under the pictures.
