You have seen them around haven’t you? Those impossibly gorgeous chunky knit blankets. The texture adds so much to a space and they just look so inviting. The chunky knit blanket fad has taken all of us home decor lovers by storm. They are everywhere. But, have you ever looked at the price on one of those blankets? Yowza! They are so pricey! I can’t imagine ever paying that much for a blanket. They range from $200, $300, $400 and beyond.
No problem, I’ll just make one myself, I said.
After spending a few minutes looking for merino wool, you will realize it too, is incredibly expensive! $200-$300 for a decent sized blanket and that is before shipping costs!

But, one day while I was shopping in Michael’s I came across this beautiful ball of yarn. It was thick and felt so much like wool. I just knew I had to buy it and come up with a way to make my very own chunky knit blanket! Only problem is that I don’t know how to knit…
After some trial and error, I came up with a way to knit this blanket using only my hands. This method makes creating your very own chunky knit blanket so easy. Seriously, anyone can do it – No knitting experience required.
My dream of having a beautiful chunky knit blanket adorn my couch finally came true that day and I want to teach everyone how to make their very own!
