The Belleview Blanket is knit with super bulky weight yarn so it is quick to knit on big needles. Knit flat, in one piece, back and forth on US size 13 circular knitting needles. This pattern uses standard U.S. knitting terms. Written pattern with row by row instructions. Instructions for 5 blanket sizes included in pattern. Any of the blanket sizes may be made longer by adding pattern repeats. Each pattern repeat adds about 2.25" to the length of the blanket. Pattern includes estimates for additional yardage needed to make blankets longer. Be sure to buy additional yarn if you plan to add length to your blanket. This pattern will work well with many super bulky weight yarns. I like Lion Brand Thick & Quick Solids or Lion Brand Hometown USA. Solid color yarns will show the pattern texture best.
