One of the first things my grandma taught me when I was old enough was how to use a set of knitting needles! She taught me everything I needed to know when it comes to knitting! It didn’t take long for me to become a self-proclaimed knitting expert (not to toot my own horn, but I can finish knitting a hat in record time!) and it’s still one of my favorite hobbies. Recently, my young kiddos have expressed an interest in giant knitting projects and being the crafty Mom that I am, I was determined to get in on the giant knitting action! Together, we made a giant blanket, I just can’t get enough of how cozy the finished result is! Here are a few tips you need to get started with giant knitting so you too can get on board with the latest trend in the fiber world.
To get started giant knitting, you’ll need to pick up a few items from your local craft store:
-You’ll need chunky yarn (without chunky yarn, you won’t have a giant knitting project!) I like to use this kind from Amazon.
-Two arms that act as a set of knitting needles (two arms and some giant yarn is seriously all you need to get started…you don’t even need to make yourself a giant set of PVC pipe needles!)
