Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy

People always surprise you - and one of those surprises was when our production manager at the mill, Yvonne, posted her Limbo blanket into the Facebook thread last week.  I wasn't aware she had started a blanket in Limbo and after much harassment I have made her bring it to work to share it all with you.

It is so incredible simple and just seriously stunning.  Using 19mm needles, Yvonne cast on 50 stitches, the most Yvonne said she could fit onto the needle, and knit 16 rows in each colour (essentially one hank  per stripe).

This has made a decent sized throw - wide enough for a single bed and you could easily sew two of these together to make a queen sized spread.

Make sure you check out other inspiring creations in the Facebook Post and Win thread - it's a great way to see what else is being made using chunky yarns and get some ideas of what supersized goodness you can cast on next.
