Published 8 years ago

Have you heard about extreme knitting? It’s just like knitting, except for baby socks, you’re knitting huge projects, just like this cozy blanket you’re about to see.

Pro knitter Laura Birek even made a DIY detailed tutorial of how to make one yourself. And all it takes is a couple of items and just 4 hours of your time!

These are the ingredients:
1) many rolls of unspun wool roving, slightly felted and unwashed (tutorial uses brown sheep’s wool);
2) two long 1 ½ inch PVC tubes;
3) duct tape.

This extreme knitting DIY tutorial will keep you warm throughout winter


Step 1. Use duct tape to sharpen the ends of PVC tubes


Step 2. Use your new ‘knitting needles’ like you would the regular ones (knit one, purl two). About 24 loops across make a decent-sized blanket


Step 3a. “Seal” the edges by using the end of the cord and weaving it in and out of the loops that make up the edge


Step 3b. Then, tie a loose knot when you run out of cord


The last step will provide your blanket extra durability, because the weave should hold in its place


Here’s the full tutorial:


In cahoots with the secret orde...
With nobody. In cahoots with nobody.

Got wisdom to pour?
