Just Keep Knitting Mitered Squares Knit Blanket

Learn how to knit a mitered squares blanket with this wonderful pattern!

Updated May 18, 2021
Just Keep Knitting Mitered Squares Knit Blanket

When times are tough, sometimes you have to remember to just keep knitting. That's why this Just Keep Knitting Mitered Squares Knit Blanket is so great. It's so mindless that you won't feel like you're lifting a finger, and so addictive that you'll have trouble putting it down to do the dishes or go to sleep! This easy knit blanket pattern looks much more complicated than it is, so it's sure to impress. While we love the earthy tones used in the sample, it would look great incorporating all of the colors of your living room or bedroom.

This incredible pattern is fifth in a series of printable patterns we're releasing to celebrate AllFreeKnitting's 10th birthday!

This yarn is listed on the website as a #5 bulky yarn, it is listed on ravelry as a #6 super bulky, either way the 5 mm needle is far too tight, feels like it could break the needle tight. The recommended needle size for this yarn is 6.5 mm, I'm going to try that to see if it helps with the tightness and drape.
