The temperatures are dropping. If you love fall, you’re welcoming this change in season as the hot weather makes an exit, and the leaves on the trees start to change colors. There’s so much to love about fall. One aspect to love is the fact that with that cold weather comes the perfect time to do some extra cuddling on the couch. You want to be as cozy as possible, though, right? It’s always easy to stay comfortable when you get the chance to relax under a knit blanket. Here’s how you can make your own so you can stay cozy all season long.

Knit With Your Arms

If you’ve never knit anything before, you may find the prospect intimidating. After all, it seems like it would be pretty tricky. But you might be pleased to find out that it’s a lot easier than you might think. If you don’t even have needles to start with, you don’t have to worry about that either. If you’re using a super-chunky yarn, you can knit with your arms (and finish up a blanket in less than an hour). Just take a quick look at how to do it, and you’ll be blown away by just how simple it is.

Get Giant Knitting Needles

Don’t feel comfortable knitting with your arms? No problem. There are special knitting needles out there that are just for huge, chunky blankets. You might be able to find these needles at your local craft store. If they seem to be missing, though, you can easily order them online. This might help you keep your arms free, so you can walk away from your project halfway through without having to worry about everything falling apart.

Add Some Color

If you’re just beginning, it’s probably tempting to stick with one color. You don’t want to make things more complicated for yourself than they have to be, right? But adding a pop of color can make the difference between a boring blanket and a decorative piece that transforms the whole room. So, if you’re feeling adventurous, add some brightly colored stripes to your blanket. Of course, you can always keep it plain too – at the end of the day, it’s your blanket and your creation, so it’s all up to you.

Making a blanket can be a fun way to pass the time during the cooler fall months. And once it’s finished, you’ll have a beautiful blanket for your home. Try it out!
