2016 Weather Blanket Free Knitting Pattern

I really love the idea of a 365 project because it really is unique and one of a kind. I have always started one and the end of January came and I had already abandoned it. That is probably why it is now a quarter of the way into this year and I am just now posting this. As with any project that you might get behind on it is best to just write the weather down every day. I keep a small journal in the project tote that I have a list of things such as this. This weather blanket knitting pattern is sure to keep you knitting all year. It’s more advanced, however if you follow the pattern it is super simple.

This weather blanket pattern was made by me and a friend together. We couldn’t find one we liked enough and that fit the specifications, so we just did the math, and this is what we came up with.

To End:

Day 7(WS):BO
Some Notes:
Due to the fact that there will be so many tails, I decided to just make the sides have little fringe tassels. I knotted them at the end of each week, you’ll want 5-6 inches of tail on each row.
I prefer long tail because of the edge it makes,
Each row is started RS facing, leave a tail at the beginning and a tail at the end. I knot the tails at the end of each row with the row below’s tail.
When doing the yo, k2tog make sure you are not dropping stitches on this row. I made that mistake and then I had to add stitches, luckily I caught it in time and I didn’t have to go back.

Optional top/bottom border will help reduce the unblocked fabric from curling. I wish I would have done this, now that I am further in. There is always next year!
