If you would like to learn how to make one of these chunky blankets, now is your chance. You can see pictures of the finished blanket along with instructions. There is also a video to show you stem by step how to make a blanket with only chunky yarn and your hands and arm, no knitting needles needed. In this video the blanket is small but you could keep going to make it as big as you wanted. Simply Maggie shows you how to make your own. I have always liked the way they look with those big thick stitches.
I think this would make a pretty bed cover for the winter time. They are most likely very warm and cozy. A small one might be nice on the sofa to put over your legs and feet and keep them nice and toasty. You could make these in colors to suit a room or a person and they would make a nice homemade gift. There is plenty of time before Christmas to make a bunch of these and would be perfect for that someone you never know what to get because it is a good bet they do not already have one.
