So your handmade business did great at fall craft fairs (congrats!). Customers loved your crocheted products and bought loads of them–which filled your bank account but cleaned out your inventory. Now it’s time for holiday sales and you need to replenish your stock, pronto! These 12 blanket yarn patterns are just what you need.
Blanket yarn is a super bulky chenille-style yarn that produces a soft, cushiony fabric. It’s surprisingly versatile. You can make a fast crochet blanket, a cozy pillow or a luxurious spa accessory. We’ve also included several easy amigurumi patterns!
With super bulky yarn, even large, big-ticket items work up quickly, which saves you time and money on labor and maximizes your profits. At the same time, your customers will ooh and ah over the sumptuous textures. It’s a win-win!
So grab one or more of these gorgeous blanket yarn designs and make holiday crunch time a little easier. You may even have time to whip up a handmade gift for someone you love.
