Sweater Weather is coming upon us and how do you stay warm? With a giant kitted sweater blanket of course! Most of us remember these from the couch at grandma’s house when we were little. She’d sit there for days at a time crocheting these unforgettable blankets that were almost like wrapping yourself in a huge cocoon. You’d lay there on her couch sipping hot chocolate wrapped in your over-sized sweater blanket.
But these aren’t just for grandma’s house anymore. These blankets are perfect for dorms and apartments. Especially if you live in a cold area where you could be forced to stay in on a cold snow day. They’re also good in Fall adding that classic stereotypical Autumn feel. You know, where you sit by the fire on hay bales roasting marshmallows and wrapped up in a blanket with your significant other.
They add a quaint but simply elegant flair to any room, especially your bedrooms. If you’re going for the old grandma’s cottage look then these are just a must! They give the feel of a better day that has long passed where things were simple, clean and cozy. Are they hard to find? Of course not! You could find them at flea markets, antique stores, craft shows, and even Amish stores. But if it comes down to it and you can’t find one you like, you could always make your own. It’s a long process, but it’ll be all worth it when Winter gets here! Now to just get my coffee cup, a good book and my chunky blanket!
