Chunky Knit Blanket in 3 EASY STEPS (NO NEEDLES)

2 Materials
2 Hours
I don't know how to knit but , it only took me 2 hours to make this blanket with these 3 easy steps! 😍 It's so fluffy and cozy I love how it turned out!
You will not need jumbo knitting needles or your arm to knit. I’ll show you how to make this blanket crochet style but, instead of using hooks you’ll use your fingers. There are three main steps to this process. Once you get them down you should have your blanket done within a few hours. Yes that quick! This isn’t like knitting a sweater where it takes you weeks or days. Those loops add up quick.  (note: these photo instructions show a mini version of the blanket…Up-size as you wish) (visit link below for full 3 step tutorial )

To make your blanket you'll need to start off by making a loop.
Then simply keep pulling more loops through each loop and it should start looking like a braid.
Following that you'll need to lay your yarn across the top and pull loops out through the top half of your braid and then simply keep going up in rows sticking your hand in each loop and pulling out a new loop.
To finish off your edges you'll need to stick your hand into two loops and pull one loop out, which will create this braided edge. I know this may seem a bit confusing but, don't forget to check out the link below and the video as well that should definitely help! :D

    I found the yarn that you used at Michael’s website. There are some reviews that say this yarn sheds worse than a hairy dog. Have you experienced a lot of shedding of your blanket with this yarn?

    I love these blankets and thank you for sharing your process. I also love the look of a bonsai with your glass and pine bough.
