Jumbo Knit Blanket Pattern

Jumbo knit blankets have oversized stitches that create a bold statement. These blankets are known for their extra warmth and coziness. IMO, everyone needs at least one. πŸ˜‰

Yarn & Substitutions

I adore the chunky throws made with roving yarn in fancy magazines and in pretty Instagram photos. They’re so beautiful… and expensive. I’ve been looking for a more affordable alternative. I finally found it!

Mainstays Chenille Chunky Yarn is a great alternative to the roving wool.

Needles & Notions

US 50 (25mm) Circular Needles with a 24β€³ (60cm) Cable

3 3/4 STS & 4 rows per 4” (10cm) square, knit in stockinette stitch

Measurements

41 1/2β€³ x 46β€³ (105cm x 117cm)

Notes

Not reversible
CO edge is the width
Knit using the seed & stockinette knit stitches
Knit flat, back & forth, on circular needles
A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of CO stitches

This was a great project to give my hands a break from thinner yarn, but keep them busy while knit-flixing. I paced myself and knit 1 skein a day, so it took me 5 days to complete.

Jumbo blanket makes a cozy mat.

I like to use this throw blanket as a meditation cushion too. I have hardwood floors, which are not known for their warmth or coziness. The first time I sat on this throw to meditate my body sighed with relief. It kept me warm, even though the floor was cold, and it was so comfy, my ankles thanked me.

I know many of you enjoy working from a paper copy of your knitting pattern that’s why I offer a printer-friendly PDF completely ad-free on Etsy, Ravelry or LoveCrafts.

That way you can have lifetime access to it and download it to any device and view it from anywhere, without ads (and the pattern might not be around forever).

The ads on this website make it possible for me to offer the patterns for free, that way you can try it before you buy it. :)
