7 DIY Chunky Knit Blanket to Gear Up for Autumn

1. Learn How to Make a Chunky Blanket for Only $17

You don’t need to spend a lot of money to make yourself a cozy blanket. In fact, it can be even cheaper if you manage to snag the yarn on a clearance sale.

This chunky knit blanket is so simple, even someone with zero knitting experience can make it. All you need are a couple of balls of chunky yarn and your hands.

2. Create a Seed Stitch Blanket

A soft and squishy seed stitch blanket is the coziest thing to wrap yourself with during a cool Sunday evening.

The seed stitch creates one of the more interesting textures in a knit pattern and they’re called as such for the bumps that resemble the look of seeds. They’re also reversible so it doesn’t matter which side you’re using.

3.  Whip Up a Chunky Baby Blanket

Let’s face it, babies are messy and go through so many blankets. A chunky baby blanket makes the perfect gift for a baby shower and because of how large your knits are, are also great when you’re in a pinch.

Pro Tip: You can also make for kids as their blankies. They are customizable as well.

4. Start a Colorful Knit Blanket

A nice, neutral-colored blanket looks classy and understated, but splashes of color can make your blanket stand out from the rest. Just tie in the different colored yarn at the beginning of the row and continue as usual until you’re done.

5. Make a Knit Blanket for Your Pets

Even your furry babies deserve to feel warm and cozy during cooler days with this soft, cottony, baby pink blanket.

Pro Tip: Nothing frustrates a knitter more than yarn tearing in the middle of a project. To prevent this from happening, unravel your yarn first before getting started (make sure you have plenty of space to work with before doing this so you don’t end up with knots all over the place).

6. Try Extreme Knitting

Don’t want to use your hands? Try out large needles instead. If you can’t find oversized knitting needles, you can improvise using items you can find in the house like broomsticks or even spare PVC pipes.

What is extreme knitting? It’s a knitting technique that uses oversized needles and yarn to create large knitted pieces.

7. Yarn Matters

Your finished product depends on the type of yarn you’re using. Some types of yarn like chenille produce a good quality blanket without spending a lot of money. If you want to take it to the next level, you can use yarn made out of materials like wool but expect to pay hundreds of dollars just for the yarn alone.
