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

The State Line Blanket knitting pattern design was inspired by one of the most well known streets in my hometown…Kansas City. Half of our city is in Kansas and the other half in Missouri. As the name implies…State Line Road is the dividing line between the states.

FEBRUARY 2018 UPDATE: Pattern updated to include instructions for six sizes.

Read more about this pattern on my blog.

Knit flat, in one piece, back and forth on US size 13 or 15 circular knitting needles.

DIRECTIONS FOR SIX SIZES:

Baby Blanket: 30” wide x 31” long
Small Crib/Lap Blanket: 33” wide x 36” long
Medium Throw: 37” wide x 46” long
Large Throw: 41” wide x 51” long
XL Afghan: 45” wide x 56” long
XXL Afghan: 49” wide x 61” long

It’s easy to make any of the blanket sizes longer by adding additional pattern repeats. Each repeat adds about 5” to the length of the blanket.

SUPER BULKY YARN:

Baby: 350 - 370 yards
Small: 450 - 475 yards
Medium: 650 - 680 yards
Large: 800 - 830 yards
XL: 960 - 1000 yards
XXL: 1150 - 1200 yards

Pattern includes estimates for additional yardage needed to make blankets longer.

You may also experiment with knitting two strands of bulky or worsted weight yarn together…remember you will need about twice as much yardage!

SKILL LEVEL: Easy

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

NEEDLES:

You may use either US size 13 or 15 knitting needles.

Pick the needle size that works best for your yarn and knitting tension.

Knit flat, in one piece, back and forth on long circular knitting needles. Circular needles are recommended to accommodate the large number of stitches.

GAUGE:

Approximate gauge in stockinette stitch (after blocking): 8 stitches & 12 rows = 4”

Exact gauge is not essential for this project.
