Have you seen the COMFY? It’s a blanket, it’s a hoodie, it’s a one-size-fits-all amazingly cozy blanket hoodie. Everyone on my team has been wearing them this winter, especially as the snow has been coming down on the East Coast. While we all love this hoodie, we also like the idea of making our own similar project. After all, that’s what we do right? So, we wanted to make sure that you don’t miss the Bernat Lounge Around Crochet Blanket Hoodie free crochet pattern from Yarnspirations.

We Love Wearing Blankets
The COMFY is terrific. However, it’s obviously not the first wearable blanket. Seeing it, you’re immediately reminded of the Snuggie. And there have been other similar designs over time. We love the COMFY because it fits like a hoodie but feels like a blanket. Regardless, though, it’s just another example of a human truth: most of us love wearing blankets! What’s better than cozying up with a blanket on top of you? Putting one on that you can take with you when you walk to the kitchen to warm up your cocoa! It’s the perfect winter lounge wear.
Crochet Blanket Hoodie Inspired By COMFY
The COMFY is its own patented thing, of course. However, like all great designs, it’s inspired makers of all crafts to create their own similar styles. So, of course, the Bernat Lounge Around Crochet Blanket Hoodie isn’t the COMFY exactly. But if you love the COMFY and you love to crochet then you’re also probably going to like this pattern.
Bernat Lounge Around Crochet Blanket Hoodie
This crochet blanket hoodie is a free Yarnspirations pattern. It’s designed to use Bernat Blanket Twist yarn. This is a #6 Super Bulky yarn. It’s a chenille-style yarn that’s obviously perfect for blankets, so much so that it’s named as such. And therefore, it’s perfect for a crochet blanket hoodie, too. It’s cozy, comfy, plush and lush. Moreover, you can machine wash and dry this yarn, which means that you can throw your hoodie in the wash and have it ready to wear again in a couple of hours.
Additionally, since this is such a bulky yarn, it works up really quickly, which means that you won’t have to wait long to wear it the first time once you start crocheting it! The hoodie is worked in five separate pieces and seamed together. The hood is added after the rest of the pieces have been seamed together, worked from the neck up. Although it requires some shaping, this is considered an easy level crochet pattern. Notice that you’ll add a pocket on the front to recreate that hoodie feeling – and have a place to keep your hands warm.
This pattern comes in two sizes. It’s essentially a one-size-fits-all design that’s been expanded upon to truly fit more people in a comfortable way. The smaller size is designed for XS-XL while the larger size is designed for 2XL – 5 XL.
