Since we know that each ball of yarn has 590 yards, we would need 1290/590 = 2.19 balls of this yarn to complete this blanket, or about 3 balls or skeins of yarn – two skeins will be used up completely and some of the third skein will be used up with most of it leftover.

How long does it take to hand knit a blanket?
The short answer is that a knitted baby blanket can take anywhere from two to four weeks with worsted weight yarn and the size 8 needles. However, for this size and weight of yarn, you would have better luck with a minimum of four hours a day being devoted to your knitted baby blanket.

One of the reasons these chunky knit blankets are so expensive is because the merino wool is very pricey. You’ll find this even if you make your own chunky knit blanket.
Can you arm knit a blanket with thin yarn?
You can arm knit a blanket with thin yarn, but it requires using multiple strands. The look of the blanket won’t be the same if you use just one strand of thin yarn so you need to make your own bulky yarn. This can be done very easily and with a variety of yarn colors to added effect.
