The Boulevard Blanket….it’s quick, easy, chunky, warm and reversible!

At first glance you might think this pattern is just simple garter stitch. Look again!

An easy K3, P3 repeat pattern creates a subtle striping effect.

The name of this pattern is inspired by the beautiful tree lined boulevards of my hometown….Kansas City.

This pattern is knit with super bulky yarn so you’ll have this blanket knit up in no time.

If you prefer a lighter weight yarn (worsted weight or similar) see my free Meadow Lane blanket knitting pattern.

The blanket is knit in one piece, back and forth on 32” long circular knitting needles US size 13 or 15.

Exact gauge is not essential. However, knitting should be fairly tight for desired appearance.

SKILL LEVEL: Beginner / Easy
