These Chunky And Cozy Blankets Are Perfect For Winter, And Here’s How To Make Them! – Momma Buzz

These Chunky And Cozy Blankets Are Perfect For Winter, And Here’s How To Make Them!

If you’re looking for the coziest, warmest, most snuggly blanket ever, then you need to check this out. This video guide will walk you through how to make your own giant, chunky, bulky, blanket. This blanket is massive, but since the wool rovings are so thick, there aren’t actually that many stitches required and it won’t take too much time.

After felting the wool for two or three hours and letting it dry overnight, the knitting process only takes two to four hours. This seems like a drop in the bucket considering the size of this behemoth blanket. If you’re not sure what felting is, we’ll get to that later. Since the blanket requires such large strands of wool roving, the video will even discuss how to make custom needles large enough to handle the wool.

At the end of this article, we’ll show you a video tutorial that shows you exactly how to pull this look off, but before that, check out some of these incredible inspiration photos! Even if you’re not a skilled knitter, it’s an easy skill to learn. And when you’re done, you’ll have a huge snuggle-blanket that you and your family can cherish for years.

As an addition to your family room or living room, the blanket will add a cozy element of style. When you’re buying your wool roving, be sure to pick a color that will suit your home’s color scheme.

For Those Rough Days

When things aren’t going well, sometimes you just want to hide away in the embrace of a big warm blanket. I can’t think of a better blanket to hide in than this one. It’s super comfy!

Caring for Your Blanket

Since the blanket is formed out of un-spun roving, there will, of course, be some shedding. A lint roller can be used to help manage pilling and shedding. Picking fluffy bits away carefully with your fingers can also work.

Make Your Own

If you’d like to make your own giant chunky blanket, you can find the wool roving here. Felting the wool roving (attaching the ends together) is easy, and a guide can be found here. You can even get the custom pattern on Etsy to help make things easy. If you can find some giant sewing needles like these ones, they’ll work. Otherwise, you can make your own enormous needles out of PVC pipe.

Happy knitting! Let us know how your blanket turns out!
