As the temperatures continue to dip, it’s prime time for cozy knitwear to take the edge off winter. Like something out of a fairytale, this is the ultimate security blanket you can get lost in! At the top of my wish list for this fall is a giant chunky knit wool blanket. I keep seeing them on Scandinavian interiors, and every time I do I take a minute and imagine how wonderful it would feel to be snuggled up underneath a blanket that feels like a giant wool sweater for your entire body. So I’ve hunted down a few sources for these enormous lovelies, and also a few DIYs for those of you brave (and talented!) enough to make your own.
Most of the tutorials teach you a basic arm knitting technique while some use giant circular knitting needles. If you can’t get your hands on the unique over-sized needles, people have been known to use broomsticks, PVC pipes and even just their own arms. Due to its sheer size and softness, it’s very difficult to find shops that carry it — and when you do, it’s going to cost a pretty penny. All of these beautiful super chunky blanket are so soft and so warm, you will be completely pampered in its embrace. It regulates your body temperature, keeping you warm and comfortable, never too hot. It will keep you warm on cold days and cool on warm ones.
Winter is coming. Luckily, with extreme knitting you can create a giant-sized blanket to keep you warm and cozy throughout those long and cold nights. Want to do for yourself one of these chunky knits? It’s very simple. All you have to know is the knit stitch. Otherwise, thank God we have Etsy! People are buying it like crazy.
