When you are feeling the cold and it is snowing outside, there is nothing better than hibernating in your home with the heating on, drinking tea or coffee and knitting something in soft chunky yarn.
Super-sized knits have become really popular with everyone making hats, sweaters and scarves on size 10mm (US 15) needles or above.
I was lucky enough to be gifted a pair of 25mm (US 50) wooden circular needles from Lynne creator of the awesome blog > Design The Life You Want To Live.
The huge needles are just what I needed for knitting cowls and they will be perfect for making a chunky knit blanket.
I have included a free pattern from Lynne's site further down - so if making a super chunky knit blanket is on your to-do list - get the pattern here.
Whatever you want to make to stay warm and cosy, there are plenty of patterns in this roundup for you to choose from.
*Don't forget to pin and share!*
