Knit A Blanket To Keep You Warm + Cosy!
When it is really cold outside, all you want to do is snuggle up on the sofa in your cozy blanket, with your dog or cat by your side.
Watching Netflix, while knitting and drinking tea can feel so comforting during the colder months.
Knitting your own blankets for yourself or to give as gifts will be welcomed when you reach those zero temperature days!
More and more people are making their own chunky knitted blankets, with bulky weight yarns, knit on big needles.
They are easy to make too, with only a basic knowledge of knitting needed to get started.
If you want to learn how to knit and want an easy project, to begin with, learning how to knit a blanket is probably a great idea.
