I came up with this pattern as a wedding gift after seeing a knit blanket on their registry from Target. I wanted to come up with a timeless design that is also very durable and machine washable (unlike the one from Target). I just love the simple farmhouse look the white yarn gives this pattern.

Made up of all slip stitches this is a great project to make while watching TV and makes the perfect gift that anyone will love! 

Perfect size for a king size bed throw or would look great on anyone’s couch. Finished blanket size is 50″ x 70″.

If you notice, the pattern requires 4 balls of Bernat Baby Blanket yarn plus an extra 15 yards. If you want to keep it under 4 balls of yarn then feel free to save some yarn by:

  • omitting approximately 5 rows from the blanket (making it shorter) or
  • through the tassels by either using only 4 strands each or making each strand 2″ shorter.
