Note: This pattern is currently in draft form for testing. The price will increase slightly when it is finalized. Folks who buy the pattern while it’s in testing will receive the final pattern at no additional charge.

This is my variation of a traditional pattern adjusted to make a very heavy blanket. Some folks need some extra weight on them in order to sleep really well and weighted blankets are commercially available. This pattern makes a blanket that weighs a bit over 5 pounds (2400 grams) and does the trick without the neoprene and BBs used in the commercial weighted blankets.

The pattern is named for my son, Bernie, who loves a good, heavy, cotton blanket.

Stitches used: Chain, Double Crochet, Front-Post Double Crochet, Back-Post Double Crochet
