Introduction: Giant Heart Blanket (or Rug)

About: I love things that are beautiful and useful. Colours and nature inspire me, and I'm on a mission to make beautiful creations that inspire others and bring my own family endless joy. Be Inspired! Stacy

This super simple blanket is made from pure merino wool roving, and is HEAVENLY to sink your toes into.

Time Required: 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on your skill level

Skill level: Beginner to Intermediate

Materials: 2 kilo's (2.2 lbs) of wool roving (it doesn't have to be Merino wool, but Merino wool is super soft and not itchy) or 100 metres (about 109 yards).

Alternative Materials.... you can also knit this up with several strands of regular knitting yarn or t-shirt yarn.

(It makes a GREAT STASH BUSTER!)
