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 β€œyarn” and β€œneedles” from unusual objects, and finally how to knit up your very own giganto-blanket!
