The Giant Oversized Chunky Knit Throw Blanket

Let me take you down the winding road that is my quest for the perfect giant oversized chunky knit blanket. (How’s that for a lot of “big” adjectives?)

I spotted the image above on Instagram via Cotra Studio complete with giant oversized knit blanket on the bed, regrammed it, my friend, Hitha, posted about it (and is now making her own using this kit from Loopy Mango!), and then I noticed Coco Tran had listed her custom blankets for sale; which led me down the black hole of giant oversized chunky knit throws.

I love how cozy and perfect they are for winter! It’s like turning your favorite oversized sweater into a blanket. And now that we live somewhere that’s actually cold, I want one (or four).

Back to the giant oversized knit blanket black hole:

For starters, you can make your own, just like Hitha, using these crazy giant knitting needles or your two arms.

If hand-making one of these giant oversized knit blankets seems daunting, because maybe your 15-month old would be delighted to roll around in a pile of bubbly wool and your dog would happily run through the wool, pulling at strands with her little teeth and paws, resulting in a giant toddler-and-dog mess, rather than a giant luxury throw, you can buy your very own oversized knit blanket …
