Happy Spring! Although warmer weather is right around the corner, I’m super excited to share one more FREE, ribbed + fringe DIY knit blanket pattern with you all! 🙂

 

The “Kartopu Tempo” yarn used to create this pattern is an incredibly soft, chunky wool-blend, and is absolutely perfect for this cozy handmade project!

 

Are you ready to get started? Great, let’s go! 😉

 

To view the video tutorial, visit my YouTube channel HERE or continue below for the full FREE written pattern:

 

Finished dimentions: 48″ x 58″ including fringe

Materials needed:

10 skeins of Kartopu Tempo yarn

A 15mm, 100 cm (or longer) pair of circular knitting needles (I used the Addi 15mm 100cm sparkly knitting needles)

A 10mm+ crochet hook (I used the Addi 15mm sparkly crochet hook)

A ruler

A pair of scissors

 

Directions:

(Knitting the Blanket)

Step 1: Cast on 81 stitches

Row 1: Knit every stitch across.

Row 2. Turn, and knit the 1st stitch.

Then, purl the second stitch of the row.

Repeat, alternating 1 knit stitch & 1 purl stitch across the entire row.

Rows 3-117: repeat rows 1-2, alternating.

Row 118: Bind off in row 2 pattern.

Cut yarn & pull tail through to tighten.

(Adding the Fringe)

Step 1: Cut a piece of yarn 10″ long.

Attach with the crochet hook to the corner of one of the width (shorter) sides of the blanket as shown.

Step 2: Repeat step 1 along both short sides of the blanket, by adding a fringe to every stitch.

Now, just weave in all ends of the blanket & trim.

You’re all finished! Enjoy your new cozy, handmade throw! 🙂

Hello Anitra, yes that is correct. You knit one row and knit 1 purl 1 on the other row. And you alternate between them until the end. :) I hope this helps.
