Chunky Funky One Day Blanket

By: Lynn Spencer from
Chunky Funky One Day Blanket

"I guess its possible that you havent seen all the chunky, delicious looking throws that are sprinkled all over pinterest and the internet. But if you have, and youre kinda craving one this winter, I have a treat for you. I made this thick, cozy, chunky blanket in one day, while binge watching Nurse Jackie during Winter Storm Jonas. It was a great reason to stay inside and in front of a fire. Even though I really like natural fibers, I used acrylic in this case because of 1) its washability and 2) its cost. I saw this yarn at Michaels and liked the feel of it, so bought 17 skeins (because its what they had). I figured I would make a blanket as big as 17 skeins would make. The yarn recommends a US 15 knitting needle. I wanted a looser knit, so I tried it on US 19 (15mm), which I found knitted a way too tight fabric. So then, I cut a PVC pipe (19mm) in half and tried it. I also found that knit way to tight as well. Butsince I had just cleaned out my attic and garage, I knew I had 2 flag poles. And, since I had just cleaned out my attic and garage, I knew exactly where they were. The flagpoles have a diameter of 32mm, so they were a good bit larger and ended up just being perfect."

do you have any knitting patterns using a loom looking to make a baby blanket

Hi lizzyleschert, unfortunately I couldn't find a loom knit baby blanket on our site. However, I did find a similar pattern on our sister site, I hope this helps!

This blanket looks so chunky and cozy! It's hard to believe it can be made in just one day. Even with the cost of all of the yarn, it is still cheaper than similar blankets I've seen online and in stores.

This is a GREAT blanket. And I actually think that synthetic fiber is better for blankets and non-wearables. Aside from the fact that you can machine-wash acrylic, you very rarely have to aggressively block a blanket.

That's an awesome tips, kkittelson! Thanks for commenting. - Kaylee, Editor of FaveCrafts
