DIY- Easy Chunky knitted blanket + Giveaway
Before i share with you this tutorial id like to point out that i have never knitted before - i mean i did try around 17 years ago with my mum using knitting needles - ad i failed on a first loop - my dear mother pointed out that i might as well go and play and leave her to it
So when i first saw a chunky knitted blanket i thought to myself - there is no way on earth i am making one of those - well .... few months have passed and after 45 minutes later-massive chunky blanket that i made without any tools or arm for that matter was born .
This is a very basic blanket - you can make at home , while watching tv , or just relaxing , you can stop at any time and all the loops repeat themselves over and over again - if myself and Mr.Grumpy (especially Mr Grumpy ) can get the hang of it you can do it too .
First thing First - i have asked for an advice woolly mama - and she assured me i will not fail , then off i went to order my chunky mammoth woolfrom Woolly Mahoosive -a company that specialize in chunky and oversized wool in every color under the sun - you can chose between merino wool or acrylic "mammoth " wool- those two kinds are very similar with merino being slightly chunkier than acrylic - but since i am on a tight budget acrylic in a beautiful emerald shade was my choice .
The weight of the wool will determinate size of your blanket or a bed runner - to calculate as to how much wool you will need simply multiply your blanket ideal dimensions in cm -then divide it by 5000 - and the result will be - how many kg you will need
If you don't want to attempt making blanket by yourself then woolly mama is my to go choice - as she makes them beautifully x
