The Most Insane Free Knitting Patterns for Blankets Available Online, Part III: 23-32
Moominblanket: This is a stranded-knitted, charted blanket with steeks. These things contribute to its difficulty, but I’m thinking all you’ll have to do is take one look at this blanket and you’ll KNOW it’s a pattern that you should undertake with great care! Norma: This is a cables and lace pattern that requires 4 different charts and is knitted from the inside out. If you feel up to the challenge…well, you’re a braver knitter than I am! Not Your Normal Baby Blanket Pattern: This is definitely NOT a normal baby blanket pattern, because it’s all in entrelac. If you’ve ever knitted entrelac, I’m sure you can imagine what an awkward knit this could be. The designer does include instructions for purling backwards (rather than turning your work each time). So…piece of cake, right? NYC Skyline Afghan and Traffic Throw: Two very different afghans except that both use intensive colorwork and both were created by Lion Brand. We have, I imagine, ceased being shocked by such a coincidence. Peace Blanket: To the best of my knowledge, this pattern has never been knitted by anyone except the designer. As written, it comprises lines of writing in over 36 languages with the word “Peace.” It also contains peace symbols. It’s a beautiful work of art, but definitely NOT for the faint-hearted. Penguin Blanket: I’m a sucker for birds, and penguins are in my top 10. That is to say that even though this pattern has more intarsia than I could probably handle, I really want to knit this. Someday. Maybe when I don’t have kids in my house on a regular basis. Radical Spiral Blanket: I’m afraid this is another one of those “I can’t understand the pattern for the life of me” patterns. It’s partially because the pattern is written on a Google Docs spreadsheet, and partially because it uses instructions like “Each triangle is picked up along the hypotenuse of the previous one” which makes me say “oh, great, I haven’t studied geometry in years.” The finished result is breathtaking, and the adventurous and experienced knitter really should give it a try! Reversible Celtic Patterns Baby Blanket: You can probably guess what I’m about to say: another reversible double knitted baby blanket pattern. But this one, my dears, just might be the most insane of all! Scampers: This is REALLY cute – a lace baby blanket worked in the round with some cute little “footprints” knitted in. It’s a challenge, sure, but it sure is tempting with that adorable factor! Sheep Counting Baby Blanket: Yet another very detailed, double-knitted baby blanket. Stay tuned for our final group of too-insane-to-be-believed free knitting patterns for blankets!
