Two Stitch Easy Knit Blanket – Mama In A Stitch

bewitching! Today’s easy knit blanket features simple two-pole and neutral colors to make it eye-catching and unique. Watch the colors fade together while making simple lines with either a throw blanket or a baby blanket. (Free pattern below, printable version available on Etsy here, full set available here)

If you want a stray and easy knit blanket pattern, here it is! The “Two Stitch Fade Blanket” is knitted alternately with one section of garter stitch, followed by one section of seed stitch. It’s a great blanket if you’re looking for total relaxation, without having to think. I don’t think about everything these days. 😉

It’s also great for beginners who want to master knitting and background stitching, as well as basic color changes.

And if you don’t know how to knit, but want to make this blanket, check out my How To Knit blog post and video tutorial here. I’m showing you the easiest method if you’re already crocheting, but it’s my favorite method, even if you’ve never touched yarn in your life.

Also, if you are a new beginner, you can just knit this blanket all over instead of making a seed stitch. You can also check out the Native Stripes blanket pattern, made entirely with beginner knit stitch.

How about those warm colors that blend together as your eye rests on the blanket? It reminds me of the milk I had this morning actually. Ha!

Skein Tones is really great to work with if you haven’t tried it before. It’s coarse weight #4, and it’s a smooth acrylic with just enough sheen. However, you can use any #4 yarn you like and any colors too! This can make a great stash with your random skeins of yarn left over after the holidays.

I wrote the template so that you can make this in two sizes, either the size of a baby blanket or the size of a throw blanket. It is a very versatile style due to its color options and size options. Also, you can make this absolutely any size by pouring in more or less stitches and knitting until it is as long as you like!

If you’ve followed me, you know I’m drawn to very thick and voluminous strands. It’s time for me to make something with a variety of weights, so I hope you like this one.

How do you love a throw blanket or a baby blanket?

See the free pattern with details below, but to make a blanket, it takes casting a number of stitches that make your blanket the width you want it to be. From there, she will knit you until you reach the length you want.

With the Two Stitch Fade Blanket below, you’ll see that you’ll alternate a few stitches and make color changes to the ribbon. It’s so easy to customize a knitted blanket!

How many stitches do I use for a blanket?

It totally depends on the size you want to make. If you want to make a baby blanket, you’ll be casting 132 stitches using 8- and 36-inch American circular knitting needles. If you were making a throw blanket size, you would be throwing 196 stitches.

Well… it’s style time!
