Hot off the tails of the chunky knits features on Offbeat Home I found this pattern for a GIGANTIC gauge blanket. As in, 5 stitches per 4 inches. The sort of thing you might even be able to knock out between now and Christmas if you spend every evening between now and then binge watching The Office in its entirety.
The secret to this blanket’s monstrosity is to double up some already jumbo yarn. The pattern is written for Gentle Giant, which held singly gets a stunning 1.5 stitches per inch on the suggested US17 needles.
