Why Bernat Blanket Yarn?

Its velvety texture not only feels wonderful against the skin but also works up beautifully in a variety of stitches, providing both visual and tactile delight.

What Size Crochet Hook Should Be Used for Bernat Blanket Yarn?

Again this is going to depend on the individual pattern that you have for your blanket. Designers choose different hook sizes depending on the stitch and look that they are trying to achieve with the pattern design.

Bernat Yarn itself suggests an 8.00 mm crochet hook for their yarn, but I’ve seen 6.00 mm hooks used for some patterns and even big hook sizes such as 19.00 mm crochet hook.
