How many chains do I need for a full size crochet blanket?

To give you an estimate, the chain stitches you’ll need for a blanket range from 90 to 225 chains. This is because every blanket type differs in size, and you have to consider the yarn thickness and personal gauge. You may also be using a bigger hook, so the chains you’ll do might be lesser.

Does using a larger crochet hook use less yarn?

If you are using the same pattern (same number of stitches and rows/rounds), a larger crochet hook will use up more yarn. If you are going for the same size of project (say a 36 by 36 inch blanket), a larger crochet hook will use up less yarn.
