This is a super, super bulky blanket. Yes, it’s twice as bulky because it’s knitted using 2 skeins of super bulky yarn at once. Making it twice as squishy, twice as cozy and twice as warm! This is an easy pattern using only knit and purl stitches and a 2 row repeat, so it’s easy to memorize knit while you binge watch your favorite TV show.
