"I guess its possible that you havent seen all the chunky, delicious looking throws that are sprinkled all over pinterest and the internet. But if you have, and youre kinda craving one this winter, I have a treat for you. I made this thick, cozy, chunky blanket in one day, while binge watching Nurse Jackie during Winter Storm Jonas. It was a great reason to stay inside and in front of a fire. Even though I really like natural fibers, I used acrylic in this case because of 1) its washability and 2) its cost. I saw this yarn at Michaels and liked the feel of it, so bought 17 skeins (because its what they had). I figured I would make a blanket as big as 17 skeins would make. The yarn recommends a US 15 knitting needle. I wanted a looser knit, so I tried it on US 19 (15mm), which I found knitted a way too tight fabric. So then, I cut a PVC pipe (19mm) in half and tried it. I also found that knit way to tight as well. Butsince I had just cleaned out my attic and garage, I knew I had 2 flag poles. And, since I had just cleaned out my attic and garage, I knew exactly where they were. The flagpoles have a diameter of 32mm, so they were a good bit larger and ended up just being perfect."
