How CUTE! Super cozy, and it seems like it would knit up really fast

I love this comfy giant basket weave blanket! With the jumbo yarn, big needles, and a couple evenings watching your favorite shows this blanket could easily be done. I would recommend using circular needles if you have them to help support the heavy weight of the project while you work.

What size needles did youuse

Hello Member 6243543, the pattern suggests you use Susan Bates Circular Knitting Needles: 35 mm (US 100) 40" (100 cm) or longer. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

Wow, this looks SO cozy and super fast. I'm totally going to try this pattern!

This looks like it will go super fast-- I can't believe it is only 32 stitches across! And so cozy! I also love that the pattern is given right on this page.
