What I love about this pattern is the number of balls of yarn it takes. Most throws use insane amounts of yarn, which make them super expensive. 4 balls of yarn (even jumbo blanket yarn) is totally doable

I've been knitting for years and still haven't tried arm knitting. Maybe I'll start with this pattern! I'm a sucker for knit blankets!

I would love to try this blanket, but I am concerned that I won't have enough room on my arms for all of the chains. :)

My first try turned out waaay too holey. And huge! And I have toothpick arms! Pulled it all out and started over using the largest needles I have and 1 strand. As you can see by the pic, it turned out not so differently than what the pattern shows!

Yes, I haven't wanted to try arm knitting, even though my arms are not big, because of thinking the result would come out just way too lacy and open. Glad to know you were successful in using giant needles (maybe size 50?) to make the same pattern and it came out nice.
