Any time is a great time for a new knit blanket, but I feel like this place we’re in in the northern hemisphere, where it feels like winter might never actually end, is the perfect time to knit a new blanket.
You’ve probably been spending a lot of time in your house, so your current couch accessories might be feeling a little bland. And of course if it’s cold outside you can always use a little extra warmth. And knitting a blanket while it’s cold out gives you the bonus of getting to use it as a blanket while you are still knitting it.
Of course this Forever Fleece chevron knit blanket from Yarnspirations won’t take you that long to knit, given that it’s throw sizes (about 50 by 55 inches as written) and worked with super bulky yarn.
The pattern calls for Bernat Forever Fleece, which it looks like they are running low on at Yarnspirations, though you can still find it on some craft store websites and Amazon.
If you’re looking for a substitution you could try Bernat Blanket (or Bernat Blanket O’Go if you want to let the yarn take care of the stripes) or Bernat Softee Chunky. Either way you’ll get a super cozy blanket on the double.
The tassels on the ends add a boho look if that suits your decor (and you don’t have cats; I can just imagine my kitties destroying those in no time!).
And if you happen to live in the part of the world where it’s warm right now, it’s never too early to get a jump on your winter weather essentials.
You can grab this free pattern from the Yarnspirations website.
And while you’re in the mood for chevrons, why not add a super cute chevron hat? This one is worked in bulky yarn so you can stitch it up in no time, too.
