Using just knit and purl you can create this textured blanket in around an hour. This giant basketweave blanket is the perfect accessory for your home, draped over a chair or a bed.

If you’re new to giant knitting, it may take a little practice to get the tension right, but using our Giant Yarn is a joy and so much fun – the stitches grown so quickly, it’s really satisfying.

This pattern also has all the information you’ll need to process your giant knit blanket – it is knit in unspun wool so we recommend that you process your finished blanket to help reduce shedding.
