This super simple garter stitch blanket has an I-cord edge and is worked with two strands of worsted weight yarn held double. I used several skeins of yarn from my stash that resulted in a colorful squishy blanket. It’s a great project for mindless knitting and with US 15 / 10mm needles, it eats delicious yarn in no time at all, leaving lots of empty space in your yarn box or cabinet or room to fill with new wooly acquisitions.
Finished Measurements: 66” / 168cm long from CO to BO, 48” / 122cm wide
Yarn: Worsted weight held double
Yardage: Approximately 3,240yds / 2,963m
Note: Yardage estimate is for the the total amount of worsted weight yarn used. Worsted weight yarn is held double to equal a chunky weight gauge. For example, if you are only knitting the blanket with two colors, you would need 1,620yds / 1,481m of each color.
The blanket can also be made shorter or longer to accommodate varying amounts of yarn.
Shown in: A variety of worsted weight stash yarn.
