My personal all time favorite blanket that I have ever knit is this Rainbow Knit Blanket Pattern. Mixing and matching all the yarn colors was my favorite part of this blanket. The pretty slant stitch adds a nice texture and detail to the knitted blanket.

This Bulky knit blanket free pattern is knit using HUGE size 50 needles. It is the most ginormous set of needles I own and the best blanket I have ever knit!

Here is my most popular Chunky Knit Blanket pattern that uses inexpensive yarn instead of roving. You could make this knitted blanket in a single solid color and it would be beautiful too!
7. EASY STOCKINETTE STITCH KNIT THROW
This Easy Stockinette Stitch Knit Throw is colorful and simple to make and was my companion during our 18-hour road trip to Mount Rushmore and back. It was such a joy to knit- the pattern is the simplest ever and you don’t need to pay too much attention to the knitting. My favorite kind of pattern. The yarn I used here is super soft and makes you want to rub the blanket on your face.
8. HEART KNIT BLANKET
Knitting a heart shape is a great challenge for any knitter- and though it takes some calculations you will love the end result! For this blanket, I used a contrast of knit and stockinette stitches to add texture along the heart shape. The pinks just make me happy 🙂
9. HALF LINEN TEXTURED BLANKET
This Half Linen Stitch blanket has the most amazing texture and creates a fabric that is beautiful on the both the right and wrong sides! This is slow comfort knit as the half lined stitch requires you to move the yarn from the back to the front of the work at every stitch. But that creates the easy, dense, no hole texture.
