Looking for a quick project for the weekend? Maybe you need a wedding gift like I did.
With a few weddings approaching quickly I headed to the store in search of a thick yarn. Lion Brand’s Homespun Thick & Quick was my choice, super bulky (6) weight and oh so soft. I did had a dilemma however as I stood in the store staring at the pile of yarn skeins . I didn’t know how much to buy. So knowing I hate running short I bought eight skeins. Yes, I bought too much because it only took three skeins to complete the blanket. And the best news, it only took about 6 hours to knit.
My inspiration for this project was Lion Brand’s pattern “6 Hour Afghan.” Instead of using 4 strands lighter weight Homespun yarn I used the super bulky weight and saved a boat load of money. Love it! Their pattern was also knitted in stockinette but I really like the way the garter stitch I used gives texture. Click here for your FREE copy of my Easy Knit Blanket Pattern.
