Autumn has arrived and we can think of nothing else but getting cosy every evening and delving into our knitting and crochet – and what else to create during autumn other than a soft and snuggly blanket?
We know that you are all pulling out your projects now that our scorcher of a summer has finished, and it looks like the windy and rainy weather has certainly announced that autumn is most definitely here. Perfect weather for hiding under a blanket – but first you need to make it!
At Marriner, our own blanket kits in DK, Chunky, and Super Chunky have proven to be extremely popular, and we have heard your requests for bigger and squishier yarn that would create huge blankets – and no yarn could be more perfect for this than the Bernat Blanket yarn.
A perfect seasonal match, we know that this 100% polyester yarn will keep many of you cosy on the colder nights coming up. The chenille-style effect of the yarn gives it a really luxurious feel, and the bulky weight means that it won’t take you long at all to create your perfect blanket. You will need 8mm needles or an 8mm crochet hook to begin with and you will be snuggling up in no time at all. There’s even a FREE blanket pattern on the inside of every ball band, and the large 300g ball size means you will only need 4 or 5 balls to make a large blanket.
The softness of this yarn also means that it is the perfect choice to create baby blankets, which is why we also have Bernat Baby Blanket yarn as another special guest yarn. The same size, weight and price as the Bernat blanket yarns, these baby yarns are proven to be safe for babies’ sensitive skin; Oeko-tex certified and tested for over 300 harmful substances.
You will still find a FREE pattern on the inside of every ball band – which means these blanket yarns will even make the perfect gift for another knitter or crocheter in your life. And the best thing about them is that they are machine washable and you can even put them in the tumble drier on low.
While perfectly made to create snuggly blankets, these yarns can also be used to make baskets, snuggle sacks, bags and more. So much versatility for such a soft yarn.
