Another great throw project and free pattern from Bernat yarns. This particular throw is made with super bulky weight yarn which means that it will work up pretty quickly plus be extra warm. A great item to have whenever you need a little extra warmth on a cold evening inside or outside.

Love the woven-look design in this throw that looks similar to a picnic basket weave. A great beginner project that is knitted on circular needles. Bernat Mega Bulky yarn is a super bulky yarn that is ideal for creating luxuriously thick accessories and home dcor projects with a stylish textured-stitch look.

this looks like such a nice beginner blanket, and cozy for winter! I've been wanting to knit a blanket lately and this one looks so nice!

I think this blanket would be a great one to make. With the super bulky/super chunky yarn and big needles it would work up quickly. The pattern is not too complicated, which I like because after I put it down I can just pick it up next time without trying to figure out where I was in the pattern. I think it would look nice in almost any solid color.

This is a very pretty blanket, a simple knit and a very nice size. The super bulky yarn will make the work go quickly. I think knitting this out of a self striping yarn would be quite beautiful.
