Giant Chunky Knit Blankets to Buy or DIY for Your Coziest Winter Yet

by on Nov 22, 2018

A few years ago, super chunky knit blankets started popping up on blogs and Pinterest, and I immediately knew I wanted to knit my own. Mine knit up quite quickly and easily, and I’ve been enjoying its cozy embrace ever since. Now I’m even considering putting one of these kits to knit another on my Christmas list, partly because my cat thinks that the one I made should be reserved soley for her use. But also because I’m really not sure you can have too many of these luscious chunky knit throws. Ready to test that hypothesis? Here are a variety of options for buying or making your own chunky knit blanket. 

You can make the chunky knit blanket above with the kit from Colorways Gallery here (available in more colors here) or buy it already made here.
