This is blanket #4 this year for Kozy Kovers for Kids! That was my goal, so I am very excited to meet that in July! I'm hoping to get another one or two finished this year in between hats also. We're in the midst of an awful heat wave, so I made this a small blanket - about 32 x 32, but feel free to make it any size you like!
This blanket pattern is infinitely adjustable! It's a multiple of 4 + 2 and you can just knit as few or as many rows as you would like to get your desired length! Super simple and great for working on while watching TV or chatting with a friend. I knit it using 2 different colors of Lion Brand's Pound of Love and used less than half a pound of each.
The pattern is free, but please, consider taking some time and knitting a blanket for a child in need. If you are too far to get it to us, just donate it to your local foster care agency or to your local emergency room or police station. And stop by our Facebook page and join us! See what we're doing to help children in Delaware and beyond!
The pattern is on Scribd as a PDF . You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
