The perfect knitting pattern for beginners who’ve never knit before (or advanced knitters who want a simple project) to create a cosy blanket to suit them.

Download our pattern instantly and start knitting – using just one stitch you can create a blanket as big or as small as you like. Make it in a single colour, go stripey with two, or go wild with as many colours as you fancy.

The Beginners Blanket Knitting pattern includes a handy chart (pictured) to tell you how much yarn you will need for your project and you can use our bundles to save money and choose the colours you’d like.
