Please help me find a pattern similar to this (or at least help me name the stitches? I‘m a beginner…) -
I would really like to knit a blanket like the one in the picture. Chunky wool, the design and all. I just need a little direction… I have only knit a baby blanket and a few dish rags, but that was almost 2 years ago. I learned from the internet. This site in particular was very helpful.


Anybody have a suggestion on where to start?

*This is my 1st post, so the picture or link will be in replies*

No you can post pictures directly from your computer. You have to use the 'Reply to this Thread' button instead of the quick reply button, then there's a paperclip that lets you download a picture. (or upload).

So the blanket is very chunky yarn, or several strands held together knit on huge needles in a cable pattern. You can try searching for a similar cable pattern - here's a link for a cable stitch gallery - then figure out how many sts per inch (or inches per stitch..) and multiply it time the size you want. You would have to adjust the stitches to match the repeats in the cable pattern, plus edge stitches.

That's a nice blanket, you might try searching at ravelry.com (free to join) and find something similar. You might have to find a pattern for a smaller yarn and adjust it for the yarn and large needles that would take.

I will look at both sites. Hopefully I can figure something out.

It's a good lookng blanket. There are some patterns around that come close.

but you may have to play around with strands of yarn and needle size to get exactly the pattern you like.

That blanket is knit with unspun roving - very, super bulky.

Here's another pattern for similar.
