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

The pattern calls for 35mm needles which are US70. It takes a few minutes to get used to knitting with the broom handle type needles, but the blanket takes less than 4 hours to knit.

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.
