11 Cozy Chunky Blankets You’ll Want to Knit This Weekend
There’s nothing better than getting warm and cozy under a thick chunky blanket when it’s cold and blustery outside. Beside the functional benefits of these chunky blankets, they’re also on trend. These luxurious blankets are also one of the easiest ways to update and decorate your home. They look amazing tossed over a couch, draped over a bed or laying across your favorite rocking chair.
Unfortunately, these trendy blankets tend to cost a fortune to buy so why not get a little crafty and make your own knit blanket. These blankets are really quite easy to knit up and can often be made in as little as a day or two. They also make an amazing housewarming, birthday or Christmas gift.
We’ve hunted down some of the most beautiful chunky knit blanket patterns that you’ll definitely want to start knitting this weekend.
