My cheery and bright Bonanza Blanket, worked in one piece with an optional crochet edging.Super simple, if you can do the knit stitch you can do this! Just cast on and knit (and knit and knit...!) All the interest in this design is in the colour changes and the layout of the stripes.The pattern includes both a chart and written instructions for the stripe sequence, so you can choose which to follow.Instructions are aimed at beginners, with hints and tips - but if you just want to use the stripe sequence it's written out on the last page.Enjoy!
12 stitches and 22.5 rows = 4 inches in Garter Stitch

Having trouble downloading on my kindle. File could not be opened on my phone either can it be emailed to me please.
Cannot open the digital pattern and i do have a pdf program. Any suggestion?
For some reason I can't get the complete pattern. How many stitches did you cast on?
Cast on 180 stitches in red (the same colour as row 1) using your preferred cast on method. Following the colour sequence in the Stripe Chart (opposite) or in the Written Instructions (next page), knit every row (garter stitch), slipping the first stitch of each row. Slipping the first stitch keeps the sides of the work neat if you dont want to edge it. It also makes it easier to crochetinto the finished blanket if you do want to edge it.Work the Stripe Chart (or Written Instructions) 3 times in total. So work rows 1-136, then work rows 1-136 two times more. 408 rows in total.Bind off. Weave in ends! There are a lot, so if you want a break from knitting garter stitch, weave in the ends every so often as you go.I took the instructions off for you from my pdf pattern. I had no trouble to download or read the pattern... Try downloading again, maybe something messed up for you the first time. :)
I can't wait to start this blanket. I love the bright colors. Thanks for sharing.
