Simple Stripey Blanket: free pattern

£0.00

Free pattern to knit a simple, cosy throw in aran-weight Adriafil Zebrino,finished size approx 130cm x 150cm.

You will also need a 5.00mm x 80cm circular needle.

The Simple Stripey Blanket is comfort knitting at its best. It is a simple design of stocking stitch with a moss stitch border and the fabulous stripes in Adriafil Zebrino do all the hard colour work for you. Just knit until each ball runs out and then choose another colour. The finished size of the blanket is approx 130cm x 150cm.

The pattern was designed for self-striping Adriafil Zebrino but you could use aran/worsted weight yarn. It is knitted flat on a 5.00mm circular needle to accommodate all the stitches.

I knitted most of the prototype on a car trip to the Isle of Skye (11 hours each way in the car) and it was a very mindful way to pass the journey. Do let me know where you knit yours.

Please note that the original colourway included colour 63 Fuchsia (now discontinued). This has been replaced by colour 70, Multibright and the pattern has been adjusted accordingly.
