Stormy Weather Blanket
Take a load off with a cozy little afghan you've made yourself. Knitting an entire blanket can seem a like an impossible task at first, but you don't have to be a veteran knitter to learn how to knit a blanket that will stand against the cooler temperatures sure to come. The Stormy Weather Blanket is the simple afghan you'll want to have right away. Knit entirely in garter stitch, this knit blanket pattern is perfect for beginner knitters ready to cast on their first long-term project.
Of course, that doesn't mean that the more advanced knitters out there can't try out this easy knit afghan pattern. Are you looking for a stress-free knitting pattern? The Stormy Weather Blanket is just what you need to unwind this weekend. Made with super bulky weight yarn and large needles, you'll be binding off and getting ready to curl up on the couch with your new knit in no time at all.
