Cozy Nook Throw
A woven stitch with just a four row four stitch repeat gives a diagonal texture to this blanket knit in super bulky yarn.
Big Cables Throw
Laura Bain designed this easy cable afghan for Red Heart that’s a quick knit in super bulky yarn.
This afghan pattern by Lion Brand is fast because it uses 4 strands of yarn knit together on size 50 (25mm) needles. The four strands gives you an opportunity to really play with color. It has a lot of good reviews but it may take you longer if you need to get comfortable with giant needles and four strands. I’d personally use circular needles. It seems like straight needles would be very awkward. 34 x 54 in. [86.5 x 137 cm], not including fringe
