Pattern Description:

Because this blanket is an "everything but the kitchen sink," you can use stash or leftover yarns and supplement with additional yarns. You could also work the entire blanket in one yarn for a toned down look. Let your imagination run wild!

This is a great stash buster project, and you can throw in leftover partial skeins too!!! You can also mix and match yarns in the sections however you wishjust remember to adjust yardage accordingly

I designed this blanket to use up some stash yarn. It is knit on US 11 to give is an open and soft feel. Because of this, you do not need to worry too much about the weight of the yarns. Anything from DK to Bulky will work. Have something thinner? Double it or hold it with another yarn.

Yarn A: MAIN yarn in the blanket (660 yards)
Yarn B: Should be a yarn with texture--eyelash or other type of novelty yarn (85 yards)
Yarn C: Any worsted weight yarn that you like (224 yards)
Yarn D: Textured yarn, such as a lumpy rayon (150 yards)
Yarn E: Any worsted weight yarn that you like (196 yards)

Yarn used in pattern picture: Yarn A2 skeins of JarboGarn Duo (330 yards); Yarn B--1 skein of Crystal Palace Yarns Splash (85 yards); Yarn C--2 skeins of Feza Polo (112 yards); Yarn D--2 skeins of Knit One Crochet Too Truffles (73 yards); Yarn E--2 skeins Tahki Cotton Classic (98 yards).

Gauge:

2.5 sts / inch over Stockinette Stitch

Note: This pattern allows for you to use yarns of various weights. Simply hold thinner yarns doubled and work on the same size needle as your thicker yarns. Some sections may appear more open than others, but that is part of the charm!

Materials:

  • Main yarn 660 yards
  • Eyelash or novelty yarn 85 yards
  • Worsted weight 224 yards
  • Textured yarn 150 yards
  • Second worsted weight 196 yards
  • 1215 yards total, but you would need more if you are holding thinner yarns as doubled

You Will Also Need:

  • US size 11 32 inch circulars
  • Stitch markers
  • Tapestry needle
  • Scissors
