Knitting: Throw
While you can arm knit or use giant knitting needles for this blanket, this pattern includes a tutorial for what I am calling “table knitting.” You lay the piece flat on a table and use your hands to pull the loops through. It’s amazing!
Crochet: Throw
This pattern explains how to do the finger crochet technique to create giant single crochet stitches. Using 3 skeins of a jumbo-sized yarn you can make a small blanket. Once you understand the pattern, you can adapt the pattern to make a larger blanket.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
You will need to know how to knit and purl to make this hat. You will also need to know how to do a K2TOG decrease. You do not need to know how to knit in the round, as this is knit on straight needles and seamed.
Knitting: Containers
For this basket you will actually start by making your own felted cord to knit with. You make a simple crocheted chain (and lots of it!) and then felt it in the washing machine. So you will need access to a washing machine, plus one or more delicates bags to put the cord inside.

Knitting: Rug

Knitting: Home - Other
This pouf, knit with soft cotton cord, makes a sturdy seat or footrest. The knitting part could not be easier — it’s just a basic garter stitch — and you can stuff your pouf with just about anything: fiberfill, pillows, upholstery foam, bean bag pellets, or old blankets or fabric scraps.
