2016 Mood Blanket Free Knitting Pattern

Last year, and the year before I tried to make a mood blanket. The problem was that I was crocheting. Crochet is so easy to abandon. You just take the hook out put it down and you can still use the hook. Well, not so much with knitting. If you have something on the needles you are invested until it is finished and comes off, unless you’re taking it apart. I wrote this mood blanket knitting pattern because I couldn’t find any good patterns, that could translate into 365 parts. So I wrote this one, because each line is 1 day. I figured that would be easiest.

This blanket is super easy since it only uses knit stitch, and seed stitch (K1,P1 Repeat). Definitely beginner friendly.

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.

I really prefer knitting to purling so if it’s a project like this I just turn it instead of purling. Feel free to do this however you see fit.It is really easy to get behind but, they are really quick work to catch up.

The yarn I started using is called Dazzleaire it’s a discontinued Carron brand that I was given. However I found similar colors in Big Twist Value brand.
