From the DIY Mommy I thought I had bought the right yarn, Super Bulky and a 6. But when I got to actually watching the YouTube Tutorial… I got something totally different. In the video Simply Maggie has some insanely thick yarn that is probably more than 5x thicker than this “super chunky” yarn.
Now, I loved the look of the DIY Mommy’s so I continued. I quickly decided arm knitting is not for me and switched to some massive needles that were gifted to me, probably about an inch or more in size but are unmarked. I cast on 35 stitches with two skeins at once, like the DIY Mommy did. I just knit and knit until my skeins were gone.
End result is a longer, more narrow blanket than I expected but very chunky – and best of all only cost me $25. Final dimensions are: 3 feet by 5.5 feet
I did look for that insane chunky yarn and found it, but it wasn’t on sale and would have cost me $90. AND they didn’t have any in white. Although, to be honest I stopped considering it when I realized it was going to be a $90 throw blanket.
