The Days to Come blanket knitting pattern is easy to knit with worsted, heavy worsted or Aran weight yarn. The blanket features an 12-row repeat stitch pattern that creates a reversible, geometric design.

The repeating geometric squares in this stitch pattern remind me of the blank pages of my new month-by-month paper calendar.  As I opened the page to the new year, I wrote down the events that we are looking forward to this year. When life seems a little challenging… or I find myself missing “the before times”… it helps to look ahead to the days to come.  Whether you are looking ahead to next week or later this year, may you find that the days to come bring moments of joy, happiness and celebration.

DIRECTIONS FOR SIX BLANKET SIZES:
Approximate sizes after blocking…

Baby Blanket: 26” wide x 30” long
Small Blanket: 28” wide x 34” long
Medium Blanket: 31” wide x 38” long
Large Throw: 36.5” wide x 44” long
XL Throw: 41” wide x 48” long
XXL Afghan: 46.5” wide x 54” long

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

Any of the sizes may be made longer by adding pattern repeats. Each pattern repeat adds about 2” to the length of the blanket. Pattern includes estimates for additional yardage needed to make each size longer.

WORSTED / HEAVY WORSTED #4 WEIGHT YARN:

Baby: 610 - 630 yards
Small: 720 - 750 yards
Medium: 910 - 950 yards
Large: 1230 - 1280 yards
XL: 1500 - 1600 yards
XXL: 1950 - 2050 yards

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

I used Spud & Chloe ‘Sweater’ heavy worsted yarn in the ‘Powder Puff’ colorway.

Stitch pattern looks attractive with solid color yarns, as well as gently variegated, hand dyed colorways.

The pattern may also be used with slightly lighter or heavier weight yarns.

GAUGE:

Pattern stitch with US size 8 needles: approximately 18 stitches & 24 rows = 4”

Exact gauge is not essential. This stitch pattern looks best with fairly tight stitches.

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

NEEDLES:

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

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 highly recommended. See my website for step-by-step tips and photos.

This pattern uses standard U.S. knitting terms.

Written pattern with row by row instructions.
