UPDATE on Feb. 7, 2014: Pattern now includes cable chart and instructions!

This enormous blanket is knit on 1 1/2” PVC pipe, using slightly-felted superwash (yes, you read that right) unspun wool roving. This pattern is more of a tutorial, as the pattern is very simple.

If you’ve ever wanted to knit in a gigantic gauge, this pattern teaches you where to find the raw materials, how to create “yarn” and “needles” from unusual objects, and finally how to knit up your very own giganto-blanket!
