Cabin Comforts Knit Blanket

You don't need to be a master knitter to knit a blanket that's cozy and beautiful. The Cabin Comforts Knit Blanket is a simple pattern made entirely in garter stitch. The color striping isn't uniform, which helps give it some visual appeal, but the neutral colors used keep it serene and versatile. The best part about hand knit blankets like this one is how quickly they work up. With super bulky yarn and size 11 needles, this blanket works up as quick as a wink.

This is a wonderful pattern for a beginner. It's great practice for the garter stitch - perfect for when you just can't bear to knit another scarf!

I tend to avoid patterns with only one stitch unless they're small and quick because I get bored so easily, but this is so casually elegant that I have to try it. And I beg to differ, but one CAN have too many blankets! I will give this one away - or maybe one of the other ones and keep this one.

I love how simple but elegant this blanket is. These colors would work perfectly in my living room

I have several balls of yarn in a DK weight. What would I need to do to make this with the DK weight yarn?

Hi bcswicegood48 0750 469, the pattern calls for super bulky yarn, so you'd need to use 3 to 4 strands of DK weight yarn to get the same thickness. You can then multiply the balls of yarn called for in the pattern by 3 or 4 to see how many balls of DK yarn you'd need. For a blanket like this, it's a lot.

I love how simply beautiful this afghan is. Definitely adding this to my list.

You can't get any simpler than this blanket. It is a good way to use up yarn as well. You can never have too many blankets and although this is simple it looks very elegant. The size of the needles should make it a quick knit. Thank you for the pattern.
