No matter the time of year, there’s nothing better than curling up under a blanket and letting the stress of the day fade away. And the bigger the blanket, the faster your stress levels will drop! At least, that’s what we think, and we’re pretty sure Laura Birek of Nocturnal Knits agrees with us. Just look at what she calls her “Giganto-Blanket!” This knitted wonder is so large, she actually uses PVC tubing as knitting needles— and you can do it, too! Watch and learn how to make this giant, snuggle-ready blanket yourself – all in four hours! – and get ready for a cuddly day.

Fun, right?! If you want to try this “Giganto-Blanket” yourself, grab the pattern here, and check out the FAQ on the project here. Have you ever made a giant blanket like this one before? What other kinds of alternative knitting needles have you ever used?
