Three Types Of Blankets That You Really Need


Blankets aren’t just for tucking into your bed and curling underneath for sleeping — there are plenty of terrific reasons to have blankets in your home. If you are a crafty person or have experience with knitting or crocheting, you should make the following three blankets for your house.

A Blanket to Get Cozy on the Couch  

Your home should always have a crafted blanket resting on your couch — it’s ideal for when you’re watching a movie or reading a book and feel too chilly to get comfortable. If you don’t already have one of these blankets sitting on your couch, you should knit one to stop the cold from ruining your relaxation time. Go to the website Yarnspirations to find the right knitting tools and yarns, then have them shipped right to your front door. The website will have a large number of patterns for blankets, throws and afghans to try out — consider a cable knit or thick slip stitch pattern to end up with an incredibly cozy blanket.

A Piece to Tie the Room Together  

While blankets are primarily used for warmth and comfort, they are also great pieces that can show off your personal style. A blanket can always be draped along a couch, chair or bed as a unique centerpiece or dramatic accent in a room. Make sure that you craft a blanket that will pair well with the room’s interior design, furniture style or theme. If you want your space to have some retro flair you can knit an awesome bohemian blanket to match the atmosphere — the bright colours and bold patterns will blend in with all of your boho décor. If you would describe your room’s style as rustic chic inspired by farmhouses and log cabins, you can create a blanket in a plaid pattern.

Something that the Kids Will Love

If you have children or even a set of grandkids, you should have some snuggle sacks available in your house. A snuggle sack is a knitted sleeping bag that can be made into all sorts of fun shapes like mermaid tails, rocket ships, unicorns or slices of pizza. These adorable blankets are perfect for bedtime, along with special occasions like movie nights, overnight camps and sleepovers. If your child is hoping to have some friends stay the night, you can plan for a successful sleepover by having spare snuggle sacks and pillows ready for them.

One blanket will make sure that your couch is a comfortable space to relax and enjoy your entertainment. Another blanket can match your unique sense of style and make your room look like it came straight out of a magazine catalogue. Snuggle sacks are great ways to keep your kids happy and make sure that their friends are excited to be sleeping over. With the help of some yarn and knitting needles, you can be sure that your house is a place of comfort, charm and delight.
