Introducing the Kounterfeit Kabled Kover!

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 info@kozykoversforkids.org or robin@delawareheadhuggers.org

Kounterfeit Kabled Kover

Yarn:  2 colors of worsted weight yarn - amount depends on size


Needles:  Size US 15 -  29” circular needles 


Explanation:  K2togK:  Knit 2 stitches together, but don’t slip off left hand needle.  Insert right hand needle between the 2 stitches and knit the 1st stitch again, then slip both stitches off needle.


Cast on 90 stitches  holding one strand of each color together as one.  Do not join - circulars are used to accommodate the large number of stitches.

Happy Knitting!


Remember, all are welcome to join us in some way - we love to see new people and are grateful when more people hear about us.  So, spread the word!  And, as always, if you or anyone you know is in need of chemo caps, please feel free to contact me directly at robin@delawareheadhuggers.org and I will be happy to ship some out.  If there is a chemo center that is near and dear to your heart and you think they could use some hats, let me know and I will ship a box off to them.  This is what we do!!

  1. This Kounterfeit Kabled Kover will be my next afghan for the Knitting Paradise project....knitting for the June flood victims/ survivors.
    I expect it will knit up fast with 2 yarns at the same time. We have 8 or more Calgary members in KP knitting for this project, and have also received donations for other KP members. We have been collecting hats, mitts, scarves, and blankets to be distributed in the later fall. Thank you for this pattern. Nancie
