Happy Endings blanket is very easy to knit with bulky weight yarn. And, this blanket is reversible! An easy to remember two-row stitch pattern creates a texture that is attractive on both sides of the blanket.


It means so much to see how knitters use my patterns…and to hear their stories of how they demonstrate their love for their family through their handmade gifts. They make blankets to celebrate happy beginnings…to welcome babies to their family, to give to adult children moving into their first apartment, to celebrate a wedding, and to celebrate a loved one’s birthday. All of these gifts are heartfelt wishes for happiness. Here’s to celebrating happy beginnings…and wishing for happy endings.

I used US size 10.5 knitting needles. Use the needle size that gives the best appearance with your yarn and your knitting tension.

Significantly different gauge may require more yarn.
