These fat yarn blankets and pillows are so cool! I had seen them on Etsy and Pinterest and I thought it took some kind of expert skills to be able to make one. Not so! I found this Youtube video where a lady tells you how to make one in 15 minutes! OMG, let me tell you this amazing list of a few steps that can yield one of these gorgeous fat yarn blankets in just a few minutes with hardly any cash outlay at all. Here’s how to make it in a few easy steps.
Make your first knot
Make a Ten Stitch Chain
Keep going around your pillow until it is 15 inches high, then attach the top together
Stuff your pillow with cotton batting
This pillow was so super easy everyone loved it and wanted one. I made so many more as gifts for my daughter, my aunt, and uncle, and made many extra that I could keep on hand to give as gifts if I’m ever in a pinch. They are super cozy and look beautiful on a sofa, chair, or in a rustic farmhouse bedroom. I love these pillows and they are great with any type of wool, I made mine with Alpaca Wool, but Sheep’s Wool or even Acrylic will work nicely. After I made as many as I could I started making some blankets in the same method, this chunky wool is so easy to work with and your project goes so quickly, this a very satisfying project that yields excellent results.
