Making giant corded items such as throws, scarfs, and rugs in addition to blankets has been growing quite popular in the DIY world for their iconic look and comfort. There are other “tighter” versions of giant corded blankets, which actually utilize giant knitting needles made out of wood, but today we are going completely DIY to a size in which you have to make the needles yourself as well!

Giant corded items make great gifts as they have to be made by hand as they are so big manufacturers just have no way of producing them themselves in an economically efficient manner! Therefore, the person you are gifting this too will truly have a handmade item by you to display in their home!
