I also just published another new chunky wool blanket pattern here. It was going to take a while to Feng Shui the sadness outta me. I made you cry too with that blog post too, didn’t I? You know what they say when you are going through hell ? To tell you the truth, I used to think that knitting was something s.t.u.p.i.d that old ladies did.

I tripled mine when I used yarns from the Amazon links above.
If you are looking for a chunky look, doubling or tripling the yarn is your best bet.
There are so many options with wool, acrylic, cotton, blends. The crappy part about wool is that it can eventually get little balls on it as it wears. You will need to calculate how many skeins/balls of yarn to buy based on the size of your throw and how much yardage there is per ball. Each yarn will have different weights/yardage, so you will need to do a bit of math. Depending on the yarn that you use, you could go with one strand, double or triple.
I looked for soft chunky yarns in soft soothing colours. When using this merino wool, it is thick enough to get away with only having to double it. I went for the softy-feely-kinda-yarn when I bought my yarn. Acrylic doesn’t look as good and it definitely isn’t as warm. With a triple strand, it will be thicker and chunkier. You can see this method in the video at the top of the blog post.
Normally, circular needles are made for making things like hats etc. They are bundled up by me, and sent to you with lurve. The finished size of blanket is 40 inches wide by 65 inches long. PATTERN TIPS : if you finish a row in 4 purl stitches, then you must begin the next row with 4 knit stitches. Whatever stitch you end a row with, begin the next row with the opposite stitch.
