Not only does this blanket sweater look cozy, it is cute too. I love the fact that it is done in classic colors. Black and white go with everything and this is the type of sweater that you end up living in. I am also happy this is a knit pattern because while I do love crochet, it eats yarn and I never seem to see any knit blanket sweaters.

This looks sooooo comfy! It seems to be an easy, peasy to love that word "beginner". I might even try the color changes. The only thing that makes me a little nervous is that I've never modified a pattern before for size and since I wear at least a 1X and I might want this sweater in a 2X I'll have to do that. If anyone else has modified to these sizes I'd really appreciate hearing from you!

I'm not an expert and have never written a pattern but I think if you would take a blanket or sheet and drape it around your arms so you could see about how wide you wanted the sweater then measure that length Next swatch some of the yarn you want to use with the needles you are using Measure how many stitches you get per inch You should have two measurements now stitches per inch and width you want the sweater Multiply these two numbers together So stitches per inch times inches would be stitches Cast on that many stitches and start stockinette knitting As the piece grows you should be able to try it on by pinning like it says for arms and checking When you've hit the correct drape cast off and add the edge You will have more edges stitches also That should work and if you getRead More it off the needles and don't think it will work you will probably have a nice baby blanket or lap throw

This one is easy to modify, but you may find you don't need to, I made this as the family christmas gift a few years ago, my daughter is a 2x and the large comes out that big if you use the size for large and size 10 mm/US 15 needles, my step daughter is a size 4x and I used the larger needles and 120 stitches and everything worked out well. Hope this helps someone, happy knitting.

I have knit a sweater like this before, and it was so easy and I get a lot of compliments on it. I'm going to make this one with the striped edge. I really , really think that sets it off nicely.

I love the combination of black and white in this sweater! It looks like a great pattern for practicing color changes.
