Homeward Bound Lap Blanket
Homeward Bound Lap Blanket

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, yarn over, i-cord

Pattern Description:

I designed this for my son in his last semester of college. May he always be homeward bound!

This is a quick knit and makes a great wedding gift (or new baby gift!).

Feel free to customize the size and the look...a funky yarn for the i-cord border would be great (I'm thinking Knit Collage Rolling Stone) or add some pom-poms for a completely different feel.

Knit it single instead of double-stranded if you'd like, but be sure if you do that to go down two needle sizes (or maybe more depending on how tightly you knit).

Gauge:

5 stitches in 4 inches

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 42"x 38" (can be made any size however)

Materials:

  • size 36 circulars, 32" in length, one set DPNs size 19

Suggested yarn:

800 yards of Bulky weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Brown Sheep Burly Spun

Colorway:

Your choice!
