How much do you need to knit a blanket? Blanket 80X145 cm - appr. 4,4 lbs Blanket 105X155 cm - appr. 6,6 lbs Blanket 130X180 cm - appr. 8,8 lbs Cowl - appr. 1,1lbs to 2,2lbs Long Scarf - appr. 2,2 lbs Merino wool: 40 mm diameter, 4 cm One stitch is 3 inches or 80 mm. Please remember that the size of the blanket and the quantity of yarn which is necessary will also depend on a chosen pattern and knitting style as well as your knitting style. Don't tighten the yarn too much while knitting it will only harden the blanket and make it much smaller. The quality and softness of the blanket will be nice and soft in touch if you knit your stitches loosely. My recommendation is to use needles but don't be afraid to use your arms if you do not needles. Check out other color options in our store as we have more than 42 colors available.
