4 hours, that’s all you need to make this big cozy blanket

With winter just around the corner,  it’s time to invest in a beautiful giant size blanket to snuggle into. Now, with extreme knitting you can knit a giant-sized blanket yourself.  Want to know the secret? Nevermind, one blogger created an easy to learn tutorial to get you knitting on your own cost blanket.

Usually, you need really big knitting needles for projects like these, but Laura Birek found a way how to use PVC tubes and get the same result. Her DIY is a money-saver, too!

You will need these items:
1) rolls of chunky yarn (you can get it on Amazon);
2) two long 1 ½ inch PVC tubes;
3) duct tape.

This extreme knitting DIY tutorial will keep you warm throughout winter

Step 1. Use duct tape to sharpen the ends of PVC tubes

Step 2. Use your new ‘knitting needles’ like you would the regular ones (knit one, purl two). About 24 loops across make a decent-sized blanket

Step 3a. “Seal” the edges by using the end of the cord and weaving it in and out of the loops that make up the edge

Step 3b. Then, tie a loose knot when you run out of cord

The last step will provide your blanket extra durability, because the weave should hold in its place
