Nothing says winter quite like a giant knit blanket. Yes, wrapping yourself up in a cozy throw is technically a season-less activity, one that you likely do on the daily on your couch or your bed, but it doesn't feel quite as good until the temperatures have dropped and the holidays start to roll in. Watching a spooky movie with a blanket as your shield? The best. Digesting your Thanksgiving meal while tucked underneath heavy knitted fabric? Arguably therapeutic. Listening to holiday music, draped in your favorite Christmas quilt? I rest my case.
But this winter season, why not overhaul your blanket collection? Trade in your ratty old throw for a chicer, cozier upgrade. There are more options than ever before, thanks to the popularity of crocheting and the hygge movement. Whether you're looking for a chunky knit blanket or a rich cashmere throw, there's one for you and your toasty winter needs. Here are 19 giant blankets to wrap yourself up in until spring.
1Pom Pom Fringe
It doesn't get any cuter than this throw with soft, softball-sized pom poms lining its edges. The price also can't be beat.
2Cable Knit Blanket
This textured, hand-knitted wool blanket is almost too pretty to actually use, but once you touch it, you won't be able to resist covering yourself in it.

This chenille blanket is as soft as your favorite sweater. No judgement you if you decide to wear it out as a blarf.

While this isn't your traditional knit blanket, it'll keep you cozy while also making you feel super fabulous.
16Pom Pom Knit Throw
If you came into this roundup thinking you didn't need a pom pom knit blanket, I assume your mind has been changed by now.

This super soft herringbone throw can be used as a decorative element on your couch or an actual blanket to wrap yourself up in on cool nights. You can also add in a custom monogram to it at no extra cost.
This large knitted throw will cost you less than a new top or a manicure and will keep you warm all winter long. Worth it? I'd say so.
19Sweater Knit Blanket
If none of these throws catch your eye, at the very least, grab yourself a millennial pink blanket to commemorate the color of the year.
