This month, Apartment Therapy teamed up with a bunch of talented knitters — like KOEL Magazine — to give you a rich mix of informative posts about this useful and meditative craft, including resources and original patterns. If you've never picked up knitting needles before, this is a great time to start. See the entire knitting series right here or let the folks from KOEL take it away...
Oh how we love seeing knit blankets these days. They make you just want to cuddle up in bed all day. If you've been dreaming of one, we are super excited to share three projects from KOEL Magazine that you can make yourself and be the envy of all your friends!
Adapted from Purl Soho, we present to you the Giant Blanket pattern, a KOEL Magazine exclusive pattern - ideal for intermediate and experts! Best known for their solid reputation as a go-to destination for quality needlecraft supplies, we are so lucky to be able to adapt Purl Soho's easy-to-follow designs into our very own "KOEL" giant blanket pattern. Up for this cozy challenge?

Winter isn't coming - winter is here! We're giving lovely Apartment Therapy readers a sneak peek into Issue 2 with this brand-spanking new KOEL-designed blanket. Teach yourself a new stitch while crafting the warmest throw to help survive the cold. The stripes make this throw easily customizable, as you can choose the color scheme. And forget about speed-dating! You'll be speed-knitting your way through this pattern with a lovely thick wool.
Say goodbye to those cold wintry days with this knitted blanket. And what's better to cuddle up under than your very own handmade piece? We say you would be in bed all day! If you are not liking the blues, pick your own color combination to create the beautiful ombre effect. The pattern was created by Petra Orrbeck of Magasin Duett, and available on the KOEL website.
