  1. Every free pattern we get is a gift.Thank you from beginners.

  2. Love it……. and I have been knitting for 50 years!

  3. Warmspirit knitter :I think it’s a great pattern for those who are learning and also for when you want to sit back and relax with the tv no thinking involved !if you added a border of just ribbing all around that would look nice too.

  4. Lovely easy and simple blanket

  5. I’ve been making this blanket but I’ve just been using leftover dk and 4ply in stripes of all different colours. Makes it a little more interesting to look and feel but the simplicity of the pattern is brilliant for a beginner like me. I just thought I’d try it as at the end of the day Im making it for a friend who is expecting in January and yes its a little wiggly on the edges. Nothing a little white embroidery anglaise can’t sort out. 🙂

      I think that is a great idea, I am planning in making one and I would definitely choose some color, maybe 3 different colors, one of each wish.

  6. I think this is a sweet blanket. Thank you.

  7. comment second from bottom.
    RUDE !!
    its a lovely blanket 🙂

  8. I would like to know how to start knitting for Charity. I never knew that there was a group that knits for Charity. I live in Sallisaw, Oklahoma and would love to do it for here. I am 78 son to be 79 years young. as my daughters saids. I think your site is wonderful and the work you do for Charity’s. Keep up the good work. My email address is God Bless you . The stars wouldn’t take my click. 5 is what I wanted.

  9. It’s nice that you dedicated it to your friends. It’s a lovely blanket. Some of us cannot conquer a harder pattern. I think if you made this for someone, they would love it, intricate pattern or not.

  10. I really don’t see how doing garter stitch or seed stitch for a while would count as a pattern. I have done plenty of simple projects like this but if I am looking at patterns online I want something more intricate than just plain knitting a square…I could do that myself.

      Well no-one is going to make you do it! It is an ideal pattern for an inexperienced or not very confident knitter who wants to make something for a friend, or daughter maybe. It’s the love it is made with that matters.

  11. I love this site. Thanks for doing such a great job.Do you have a knit letter pattern for the letters M, W and T?
