Such a dreamy giant ombre blanket – you can knit it in three different shades to create a subtle yet impactful ombre effect.
Using just knit and purl this beautiful giant ombre blanket is a joy to make. Choose your own 3 colours to create a gentle ombre effect, or use Granite, Mid Grey, and Light grey as pictured. This blanket looks stunning draped over a bed or chair.
If you’ve not done giant knitting before, it may take a little practice to get the tension right, but using our merino yarn is a joy on the giant needles you can whip it up in no time at all!
This pattern also has all the information you’ll need to process your giant ombre blanket – it is knit in unspun wool so it is essential that you process your finished blanket to avoid shedding.
