If you’ve ever wanted to whip up blankets without using a pattern, but were somewhat reluctant (or scared 🙂 to start from scratch, I have a solution for you. I made a step by step pattern for a basic blanket that I call a Friendly Blanket.
There are two reasons why I picked this name – first, the pattern is full of tips and detailed explanations of different options you can choose in every step of the blanket-knitting process. It is a lot like a friend showing a friend how to knit a blanket.
The other reason why this blanket is called “friendly” is that it makes a great gift for a friend. In several hours of mindless relaxed knitting you can make a versatile blanket that will keep anyone cosy in pretty much any situation – a road trip, an evening by the lake, a night at a campground, or just a short coffee break in the fresh air.
The pattern is highly adjustable and you can use it to make a blanket in any size with any chunky yarn you have on hand.
The instructions are supported by a detailed knit along that will help you better understand how to knit a blanket. Follow the links in the pattern to watch the knit along and to learn different ways to join a new ball of yarn and weave in yarn tails.
P.S. This is a digital download. Once you get the pattern, you will receive a unique link to download the pattern in the PDF format. The link will expire after 30 days, so please make sure to download and save your copy of the pattern before the link expires.
