Snuggle up in a big cozy blanket made by hand, literally. Bulky-style yarn and your nimble handiwork are all you need for this simple technique.
This blanket pattern, designed by Teresa Carter of DeBrosse, is made by arm-knitting: a technique which uses the knitter's arms instead of needles. When arm-knitting, choose yarn in a size of 6 or "super bulky." Knitters can decide the number of skeins they want to use based on desired thickness and length. Do not turn or flip your work. To achieve final size, keep a loose tension. If you're a beginner, use our basic knitting how-to as a guide. Small: A 30-by-50 inch blanket uses 6 pounds of yarn; Large: A 40-by-60-inch blanket uses 8 pounds of yarn.
