The Game Time blanket (and scarf!) is knit with super bulky weight yarn so it is quick to knit on big needles.

This chunky knitting design features an easy to remember 4-row repeat pattern that produces lots of texture… and it’s reversible!

The Game Time knitting pattern is very easy to knit while watching a game on television…or make a blanket or scarf to keep warm at the game!

OCTOBER 2021 UPDATE: The pattern has been updated and slight changes have been made to the two smallest blanket sizes.

Approximate sizes after blocking…

Scarf: 8.5” wide x 64” long
XS Lap Blanket: 30.5” wide x 38” long
Small Blanket: 38” wide x 42.5” long
Medium Throw: 41” wide x 45” long
Large Throw: 44” wide x 49” long
XL Afghan: 47.5” wide x 54.5” long
XXL Afghan: 51.5” wide x 57” long

Any of the sizes may be made longer by adding pattern repeats. Each pattern repeat adds about 1” - 1.25” to the length. Pattern includes estimates for additional yardage needed to make each size longer.


Scarf: 205 - 225 yards
XS Lap Blanket: 500 - 530 yards
Small Blanket: 710 - 740 yards
Medium Throw: 800 - 840 yards
Large Throw: 970 - 1020 yards
XL Afghan: 1200 - 1250 yards
XXL Afghan: 1350 - 1450 yards

I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in ‘Mustard’ (blanket) and ‘Pumpkin’ (scarf).

If you prefer lighter weight yarn, please see my Quality Time blanket and scarf knitting pattern.

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


Pattern stitch with US size 15 needles: approximately 8.5 stitches & 13.5 - 14 rows = 4”

Exact gauge is not essential.

I used US size 15 knitting needles. Choose the needle size that gives the best appearance with your yarn and your knitting tension.

Significantly different gauge may require more yarn.


Blankets knit flat, in one piece, back and forth on circular knitting needles in order to accommodate the large number of stitches.

Straight knitting needles may be used for making a scarf.


You will need to know how to cast on stitches, knit and purl confidently, read a row by row knitting pattern, bind off stitches and weave in ends.

Blocking of finished knitting is suggested but not essential.

This pattern uses standard U.S. knitting terms.

Written pattern with row by row instructions.
