Kex Blanket

Please select all options.

  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    Horizontal stripes and vertical slipped stitches give a striking effect to this large blanket. Occasional horizontal bands are worked perpendicular to the fabric, creating a plaid effect. The stitch pattern is completely reversible so you can be cozy and look effortlessly fabulous at the same time. Work with the recommended four colors or use all your worsted weight stash yarns for an even more colorful blanket.

  • Finished Measurements
    58” / 147cm wide, 80” / 203cm long. Measurements taken after blocking.

    Color A - 1,260yds / 1,152m
    Color B - 500yds / 457m
    Color C - 280yds / 256m
    Color D - 910yds / 832m

    Note: The wide Color D border can be worked with fewer garter ridges, resulting in less yarn required. Colors B, C & D are the contrast color stripes. These could all be various scrap or stash yarns. I chose to work with a total of 4 colors, but you could choose a dozen or more colors to distribute your yardage needs.

    60” US 9 / 5.5mm circular
    The blanket is knit flat, but circular needles are recommended so all the stitches are relaxed and comfy on the needles.

    Tapestry needle

    18 sts and 26 rows = 4″ / 10cm in stockinette stitch
