Piece of Home is an easy blanket knitting pattern for worsted weight yarn. The pattern includes instructions for six blanket sizes.

The name for my Piece of Home blanket knitting pattern is inspired by memories of my childhood home and the room where my mother taught me to knit.

DIRECTIONS FOR SIX SIZES:
Approximate sizes after blocking…

Baby: 29.25” wide x 32” long
Small (Crib/Lap): 31.75” wide x 37” long
Medium: 34” wide x 44.5” long
Large: 38.75” wide x 47” long
XL: 41” wide x 49.5” long
XXL: 45.75” wide x 54.5” long

Finished size may vary depending on yarn weight and gauge used.

Any of the blanket sizes may be made longer by adding pattern repeats. Each pattern repeat adds about 2.5” to the length of the blanket. Pattern includes estimates for additional yardage needed to make blankets longer.

WORSTED WEIGHT YARN:

Baby: 700 - 720 yards
Small (Crib/Lap): 870 - 900 yards
Medium: 1060 - 1100 yards
Large: 1350 - 1400 yards
XL: 1500 - 1550 yards
XXL: 1800 - 1900 yards

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

The pattern may also be used with slightly lighter or heavier weight yarns. Select the needle size that gives the best appearance for your yarn. Finished size and amount of yarn needed may vary depending on yarn choice and gauge….so buy extra yarn just in case!

If you prefer super bulky weight yarn, please see my Belleview Blanket knitting pattern.

GAUGE:

Stockinette stitch with US size 8 needles: approximately 17 stitches & 24 rows = 4”

Exact gauge is not essential.

I used US size 8 knitting needles…but choose the needle size that gives the best appearance with your yarn and your knitting tension.

Significantly different gauge may require more yarn.

CIRCULAR NEEDLES:

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

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

SKILL LEVEL: Easy

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 recommended.

This pattern uses standard U.S. knitting terms.

Written pattern with row by row instructions.
