Weekend Project: Easy Knit Blanket

Looking for a quick project for the weekend?  Maybe you need a wedding gift like I did.

With a few weddings approaching quickly I headed to the store in search of a thick yarn.  Lion Brand’s Homespun Thick & Quick was may choice, super bulky (6) weight and oh so soft.  I did had a dilemma however as I stood in the store staring at the pile of yarn skeins .  I didn’t know how much to buy.  So knowing I hate running short I bought eight skeins.  Yes, I bought too much because it only took three skeins to complete the blanket.  And the best news, it only took about 6 hours to knit.

My inspiration for this project was Lion Brand’s pattern “6 Hour Afghan.”  Instead of using 4 strands lighter weight Homespun yarn I used the super bulky weight and saved a boat load of money.  Love it!  Their pattern was also knitted in stockinette but I really like the way the garter stitch I used gives texture.  Click here for your FREE copy of my Easy Knit Blanket Pattern.
