Chunky Pizza Throw Blanket
Just like no one in the entire world can resist a good slice of pizza, no kid will ever resist this beautiful, fun, chunky pizza blanket that simply makes you warm and a bit hungry!
Pizza blankets are quite popular among kids as they remind them of their favourite food and they are warm, cozy and soft! On Jenny Designs, you will be able to find a free pattern for creating a bulky, pizza blanket that is labeled as easy/intermediate. However, since it goes in round and there are several joints as well as different patterns for the decorations, we do recommend it for someone who has previous experience! This project at first look may not seem too complex for those who are pros in knitting, but even for them, it will be time-consuming as they will need time to create the base as well as all the topping-decorations on it. But it is definitely worth the time!
You can use it to cover your loved one when they are playing games/watching TV, or when you snuggle them for a goodnight story! This blanket is also perfect as a base on which kids will sit and play! And if you don’t have kids of your own, you can still enjoy spreading the love with this blanket by creating it and giving it as a gift to your friends’ kids or someone else you love, no one will refuse a pizza blanket for sure!

If you know your way around knitting and crochets, then, this blanket is the ultimate adventure for you, and here is why.
First of all, this blanket requires your full attention and time, so to make it easier, Ashlea broke the pattern into bite-sized pieces; additionally, the blanket is made in two parts: the first one is creating squares in different designs, and the second one is piecing up together these squares and adding border along their sides. There are few different designs and patterns for the squares to choose from, (you can go with half double crochet, bobble, mini bean, lemon peel, crossed double crochet or moss stitch waffle stitch – she offers thorough instructions for all of them) and you can combine them or simply choose one you like the most and repeat it throughout the blanket.
Another great thing is that she actually offers you a chance to change the size, so if you want to make one bigger blanket for your kid, teen or even for yourself or a friend, you can do so; on her page you will find instructions on how big the squares need to be for different sizes of the blanket, or you can simply use the original size just create more squares! The choice is completely yours!
