Free Patterns

Here are some patterns that I have designed. Depending upon the stitch, stitch size, and yarn gauge, they can be smaller throws or larger blankets. I have made several for my kids to use as nap blankets at day care; they can also be baby blankets. I have included some sketchy knitting directions to help get you started.

The table below shows one basic repeat for each pattern. Click on the picture to go to the download for each, and to see the complete blanket.

Holiday Blanket in 2 colors

This is a simple blanket with a tuck stitch back. I did it in 2 strands of 2/24 yarn for each color. The directions are in "Passap", since that is what I know best!
