I love blankets! I am so excited to share this Arm Knit throw. I have seen similar throws at Pottery Barn and knew I could recreate one myself for a lot less!
Blankets make the house feel cozy and they are highly sought after around the house. I have been knitting for years and it just seemed a like a fun project to take on. I’m no knitting expert but I can do the basics which is all you need to know to make this blanket along with a bunch of yarn.
So I put together three quick videos which are very basic but give you the idea of how it works. If you knit this should come pretty easy!
I used the Biggie Yarn by Loops & Threads I found at Michael’s. I used.
If you knit this should be an easy project! If not, I still think it’s pretty simple! I purchased 6 six skeins of the yarn in white. It’s a super bulky yarn acrylic yarn.
I cast on 18 stitches which about all I had room for. I used the entire six skeins. My finished blanket measures about 40″ x 50″. It’s a good size. I was surprised at how warm the blanket is. I wasn’t sure with the large loops if it would be warm but it’s already a favorite!
From start to finish this project took me 1 1/2 hours. I have seen these thick knitted chunky throws for upward of $120 think Pottery Barn. I spent $40 on materials. Yarn is on sale at Michaels right now so the cost would be $30 if you make it the size and use the yarn I used. I think I’m actually going to make a second one for our bed in gray!
Next time I would probably squeeze 2-4 more stitches on my arm to make it a bit wider. And if you’re tall you can always just add another skein or two of yarn to make it longer.
