Extra Chunky Gratitude Blanket

There's nothing better than curling up with a big chunky blanket. Make an Extra Chunky Gratitude Blanket and keep it close by all winter long. Knit afghan patterns are a fun and challenging way to show off your skills. Using Mega Bulky yarn, you can construct your own version of this warm and toasty blanket. The thick texture makes this blanket perfect for the coldest winter months. If you have some knitting experience and want to try your hand at a bigger and better project, give this knit blanket pattern a try.

Super chunky free knitting patterns are entirely on-trend and can be expensive in the store. Quick to create and much cheaper to DIY, you will not regret learning how to knit this big and beautiful idea.

This looks super cozy. I'm wondering how long it would take, though, because 15 skeins of yarn is a commitment... especially with my track record of finishing nothing.

This does look awesome. It would be nice to have something quick. The one I have been working on is very intricate. Curious how much time this took for a normal knitter?

This looks so warm and cozy! I was planning to make something like this for my grandma for Christmas, but I just might keep it for myself! HAHA

Love the chunky blankets! This one is such a beautiful color. It really shows off the stitches.
