Bryn Knit Baby Blanket Worsted Pattern - Free Knitting Pattern

This post includes affiliate links - Please see my Privacy Policy for more info.



Hello! You may have noticed i am not posting as often at the moment as i am working on lots of knitting baby blankets and maybe some crochet baby blankets for you guys and my aim is to post a free pattern at least every 10days.




So this weeks knitting pattern is called Bryn Knit Baby Blanket using Cascade 220 worsted weight wool, i love this pattern i have to say, this pattern actually gives a cobblestone effect which is just wonderful and so different compared to a lot of other blanket patterns but i have to admit it was quite hard to get a picture of the cobblestone effect but once you make it you will see what i am going on about.

This blanket only uses knit and purl stitches which is great for beginners but it does have a 24 row repeat so you really need to take your time with this one and not miss any stitch changes or rows as it will mess the entire blanket up! But once you have completed this beauty, you will certainly fall in love with it! Promise!!

Hope you enjoy this weeks free knitting pattern and come and follow Wool and Stitch on Instagram to be kept upto date with latest designs @wool_and_stitch

FINISHING - WET BLOCKING:

Step 1: Wet block your work by wetting your blanket in a sink or in a bucket of cool water (you don’t want to use warm water as your blanket may felt and become fluffy) Leave approx for 5 mins in water

Step 2: Take your blanket out and very gently squeeze water out (do not wring water out as it will ruin the blanket)

Step 3: Gently squeeze remaining water out with a towel - You don’t want your towel dripping with water

Step 4: Place your blanket on blocking board / foam board, gently stretch your blanket out to measure 30 inches width x 31.5 inches height and place pins to hold in place - I recommended 1 inch between each pin to hold in place

Step 5: Let your blanket completely dry out, this may take up to 48 hours - You could use a fan to quicken up the process
