The Brookside Blanket knitting pattern is named for the neighborhood where I grew up in the Kansas City, Missouri area. The grid inspired knitting pattern reminds me of the orderly neighborhood streets with charming homes that date back to the 1920’s.

The Brookside Blanket is knit with super bulky weight yarn so it is quick to knit on big needles.

Read more about this pattern on my blog.

Knit flat, in one piece, back and forth on US size 13 circular knitting needles.

OCT 2017: Pattern updated to include instructions for 6 sizes.


DIRECTIONS FOR SIX SIZES:
Approximate sizes after blocking…

Baby: 25” wide x 31” long
Small (Crib/Lap): 32.5” wide x 38” long
Medium: 39.5” wide x 41.5” long
Large: 43” wide x 52” long
XL: 46.5” wide x 55.5” long
XXL: 50” wide x 59” long

Any of the blanket sizes may be made longer by adding pattern repeats. Each pattern repeat adds about 3.5” to the length of the blanket. Pattern includes estimates for additional yardage needed to make blankets longer.

SKILL LEVEL: Easy

You will need to know how to cast on stitches, knit and purl confidently, bind off stitches and weave in ends.

Blocking of finished knitting is highly recommended.

SUPER BULKY YARN:

Baby: 335 - 350 yards
Small: 480 - 510 yards
Medium: 640 - 680 yards
Large: 900 - 940 yards
XL: 1050 - 1100 yards
XXL: 1200 - 1250 yards

This pattern will work well with many super bulky weight yarns. You may also experiment with knitting two strands of worsted or bulky weight yarn together.

Be sure to buy additional yarn if you plan to add length to your blanket.

NEEDLES:

In order to accommodate the large number of stitches, long circular needles are highly recommended.
