Have you seen those big chunky knit blankets?! People are calling them “big knit.” Today we’re sharing how you can make your own! We have a really fun video tutorial and Free PDF pattern for a “Chunky Knit Cuddle® Blanket.” But… there are no knitting needles required and it’s not really made by knitting!
Chunky Knit Cuddle Blanket with Jenny of Missouri Star

Jenny Doan of Missouri Star Quilt Company and her daughter, Natalie created this unique and trendy baby blanket made with Cuddle® fabric. It’s modeled after those popular big chunky knit blankets but it’s not created using knitting needles. Jenny and Natalie make it by “knitting” (or crocheting) using only their hands. They treat the strips from Cuddle® as if they were yarn. How fun is that?!

Chunky Knit Cuddle Blanket so soft and sweet

The blanket finishes 40” x 52”, but you could easily modify it for different sizes too.

There are so many Cuddle® fabrics you could use to create this blanket.

Jenny suggests Cuddle® 3 solids and double sided Cloud Spa Cuddle® .

For this blanket, Jenny used Solid Cuddle® 3 Paris Pink.
