free knitted blanket patterns:
I personally enjoy a large knitted blanket project that has a simple repetitive pattern.
1. GARTER STITCH BLANKET
If you have mastered the basic knit stitch, you can make this blanket! This Garter Stitch Blanket Pattern is the most easiest blanket ever. It uses just the knit stitch in rows and rows of garter. Thick, textured and beautiful, this afghan will make you happy for sure.
2. CORNER TO CORNER BLANKET
One of my most popular blankets with you readers has been this How to Knit a corner to corner baby blanket with FREE pattern. I love the colorway I chose and also how quickly this knits up! Makes one perfect baby blanket.
3. KNIT RECTANGLE BLANKET:
A much requested follow up pattern, my how to knit a diagonal rectangle tutorial makes a super cute baby blanket in a matter of days!
4. THE MOST COLORFUL BLANKET
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 blanket.
5. BULKY KNIT 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!
6. CHUNKY KNIT BLANKET
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. SIMPLE AND EASY BLANKET
This Easy knit blanket that is colorful and simple to make 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 to 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.
I love knitting blankets, and I hope you enjoyed learning more about all of my knitted blanket patters. Each one of these blankets are like a friend to me and are each special to me. Let me know which one of these are your favorite!
