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
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 pair of scissors
(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! 🙂
