Learn How to Make a Warm, Cozy, Chunky Blanket a la Martha Stewart

It’s cold outside. Nay, it’s freezing out there, and we’re already looking forward to our weekend plans, which consist of doing nothing but cranking up the heat, crawling under a thick blanket, and hitting play on the newest episode of Wandavision. And while we may already have umpteen throws, none look warmer than the bulky, chunky blanket on Martha Stewart‘s website — one that, surprisingly, takes just one material — and your arm — to make. That’s right, no needles needed!

Appropriate dubbed an arm-knit blanket, Stewart’s tutorial is so easy to follow. To start, you’ll need to gather bulky yarn, and have a pair of scissors nearby, too. If you want the yarn ASAP, Amazon sells this super-soft wool yarn by HomeModa Studio.

Then, once your arm is full, slip the stitches off, and lay ’em on the working surface.

To knit the body of the blanket, you’ll then pull a loop from the working yarn up through each stitch, emulating the knit stitch.

Lastly, to finish, cast off to ensure your stitches don’t unravel; and pull up a loop on the next stitch and pull through the previous stitch.

At the end of your last row, cut the tail and pull through the final loop. And then discreetly weave the end tail into the backside of the blanket.

And there you have it: your very own, handmade chunky blanket. Read and watch the full tutorial on Stewart’s website.
