For The Little Ones: Textured Knit Blanket
If you want to knit something small with lots of texture, we have your perfect match: the Textured Knit Blanket. This 64 cm by 90 cm pattern is a perfect lap blanket or child’s blanket. (We hear fur babies like this one too!)
If you’re a beginner, this is a perfect, fun way for you to exercise your current skills! All you need to know is how to knit, purl, cast on and off, count stitches and follow a pattern. You can use larger needles to open it up and expand the size, or smaller needles to make it smaller and tighter. It’s knitted with The Woven Sumptuous — and not coincidentally, “sumptuous” is a pretty good description of the blanket’s textures.
For the Beginner With Big Ambitions: Mega Cabin Blanket
You’ve longed to make something enormous, warm and snuggly, but maybe you’ve been a little intimidated by how big a project it would be. We’ve got the pattern for you! The Mega Cabin Blanket is exactly what you’re looking for. It’s big, beautiful, cozy, and even though it seems intricate, it’s been designed to be easy to complete.
You’ve learned to knit, purl, cast on and off and pick up stitches from the edge. This gigantic 1.25m square is a complete one-piece knit. And it knits up fast. It’s the perfect way to level up your skills just a little more and get a sense of accomplishment. It is knitted in The Woven Joy, a unique, made-in-NZ, 100% Polwarth yarn.
Gorgeous Cable Snuggles Big Enough for Two: The Happiness Blanket
This blanket is thick, warm and weighty and will make you happy all winter long. The Happiness Blanket is designed not just for warmth, but also for those hard days when you need something that is calming and cocooning.
Because one size does not fit all, this pattern comes in two sizes: a giant 1.7m x 1.45m and a slightly smaller 1.25m x 1.2m. Both sizes are surprisingly quick to knit. You’ll need to know how to knit, purl, follow a pattern, and cast on and off in order to complete this. Absolutely zero seaming required because it’s knit flat on large circular needles. It’s also recommended that you use your fingers for the cabling. If you want to learn to cable, or you love cabling, this is the pattern for you!
