truebluemeandyou: Extreme Knitting - needles and Ravelry Blanket. Reblogging after posting inspiration & realisation’s DIY giant knitting needles here.
This is that Blanket that Everyone was Looking for a Pattern for! DIY Giganto Blanket here Finally Finished now with Tutorial and Pattern at Ravelry here for $4.99. You have to sign up at Ravelry, but that’s free. I just watched the video (link at bottom) with my significant other and it is amazing. Extreme knitting. Written at Ravelry:
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: CO 28, k2 p2, BO!
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!
