bernat® blanket big™ knit garter stripes blanket

Make a cozy, textured blanket! This lovely afghan, with its garter stripes and colorful tassels, is knitted from Bernat® Big™ yarn, so you know it’ll be delightfully soft, too. Just check out the free pattern below and you'll knit this up in no time!
Step 1

MEASUREMENTS: Approx. 32" x 60" [81.5 x 152.5 cm]

GAUGE: 2.5 sts and 3.5 rows = 4" [10 cm] in stocking st; save time and check your gauge


With MC, cast on 20 stitches (sts).

Row 1: [Right Side (RS)]. Knit.

Row 2: Purl 4 (P4). *Knit 4 (K4). P4. Repeat (Rep) from * to end of row.

Rep last 2 rows until work from beginning (beg) measures 60" [152.5 cm], ending on a Row 2.

Cast off knitwise (RS).

Tassels (make 10): Wind A five times around a piece of cardboard that’s 5" [12.5 cm] wide. Slip another length of A through all the loops at one end of the cardboard, then tie it tightly. Remove the cardboard and set it aside. Wrap more yarn twice around the tassel 2" [5 cm] below the tie you just made. Fasten this wrapped yarn securely. Cut through the rem loops at the bottom of the tassel, and trim the ends evenly. Rep to make nine more tassels. Sew tassels evenly along each end of the blanket, centering one tassel within each alternating garter stitch and stocking stitch section. (You can always refer to our photo to see what we mean!)
