Chunky knit blankets are here to make your winter much cozier

 Last year, Well+Good called that 2017 would be the year of staying in and boy were we right. Exhibit A: cozy, hygge-approved Instagram feeds, which have been filled with soft sheepskin rugs, cozy activewear, and ridiculously fluffy-looking, chunky throws.

Softer athleisure may not come as a shock—a girl cannot live on polyester blends alone—but the ubiquity of those giant knit blankets was a bit more interesting. Crafted with thick, unspun wool, the natural state of the blankets offers a look that’s both traditional and easy-on-the-eyes. From Lauren Bushnell’s post-Bachelor split apartment to Lauren Conrad’s nursery (maybe the Laurens of the world are in cahoots?), the winter-friendly weave has been everywhere. Seriously, I challenge you to find a cozier looking blanket.

“These days, we can’t get enough of the luxe, chunky knit throw. Style it on a chair or at the end of the bed—it adds a bit of drama to any space,” says Carly Nance Citizenry co-founder. “With its super soft texture and extra chunky weave, it’s the perfect layering piece for your home. Each [Nublado Throw, which is also pictured above] is handcrafted in Peru and takes almost a day to knit.”

To help you find your perfect chunky throw inspiration, we rounded up some of the prettiest big knits on Instagram for your viewing (and potentially purchasing) pleasure.

Keep scrolling for the warmest-looking blankets from Instagram.
