Free pattern: Golden Days blanket

Free pattern: Golden Days blanket

March 31, 2017

The call of Outlaw Queen Bee was much too enticing to resist, and I always seemed to be knitting it on days when the sun was hiding. So here we have the Golden Days blanket - if you sat down and focussed, you could knit it up in a couple of evenings. Big needles, chunky yarn, a super smooshy blanket.

I held the cable stitches on my fingers as it was the quickest and easiest way with such big stitches.

25mm needles

6 skeins Outlaw Queen Bee in colour Arabella

Finished size: 117cm wide x 131cm tall (approx)
Gauge: 10 sts and 13.5 rows = 30cm

CO 48 stitches

Row one: K6, p10, k16, p10, k6
Row two: Knit

Repeat these two rows twice more

Work cable row, then continue in pattern.

Repeat cable row every 14th row until 6 cables completed..

Cable row: k6, c10b, k16, c10f, k6

Work in pattern for 5 more rows

Cast off loosely and weave in ends.


k - knit
p - purl
c5b - slip 5 sts onto cable needle, hold to back, k5 sts, k sts from cable needle
c5f - slip 5 sts onto cable needle, hold to front, k5 sts, k sts from cable needle

Love this blanket and was really keen to make it. Went to buy the supplies and none of the colours had more than 3 balls in stock ?
