Winter is almost here. Luckily, with extreme knitting you can create a giant-sized blanket to keep you warm and cozy throughout the cold nights.
You don`t know how to do that? Don’t worry, one blogger created an awesome tutorial to help you get started.
Normally 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.
These are the items you will need:
1) rolls of chunky yarn (you can get it on Amazon);
2) two long 1 ½ inch PVC tubes;
3) duct tape.
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
