Versatility is Key

Do you already have an excess of blankets? Chunky knit blankets aren’t constrained to their name and can be used for a variety of purposes. Smaller blankets are perfect to use as cushions for not-so-comfortable chairs. Not to mention, they make amazing area rug replacements. Perfect for the undecided home stylist!

Warm & Weighted

They also have the Winter Hygge coziness and warmth everyone seeks in the colder seasons. Chunky knit blankets do offer warmth, but they can also offer a heartiness that other blankets don’t offer. You can adjust your blanket by changing both the material and how tightly woven it is. These blankets offer the same stress and anxiety reduction of weighted blankets but are easier to clean.

Cool & Airy

Sometimes a standard blanket might leave you feeling a bit stifled and too warm for your comfort. Chunky knit blankets can have a looser braided pattern to them that can promote a bit of airflow. The small gaps within the blanket allow them to get to a comfortable level of warmth. If things get a bit too warm for your liking, you can simply spread the gaps between the strands of your blanket. These blankets eliminate the midnight hokey pokey, wherein you shuffle between which foot to stick out from under the covers.

Retail or Hommade?

Depending on the type of yarn used, these blankets can get a bit pricey. Chunky knit blankets are well worth the price, but sometimes you just can’t spend a grocery bill on a luxury blanket. It’s time to put on your DIY hat because as intricate as the braids look, they are actually quite simple to make. You can even find DIY kits on Etsy that supply all of the yarn, tools, and instructions. With this option of making your own, you can personal touches and make them in colors you don’t normally see, such as amber or gold.
