Knit Blankets to Make Your Home Cozier

No matter the season, a home needs a few blankets to look cozy and inviting.

Richmond Graphic Blanket

There’s a very simple way to make your home cozy and inviting. All you need is some yarn, some knitting needles, and the patterns you get when you join the I Like Knitting Gold Club today!

There’s nothing like a cozy home. Even the fanciest home in town is lacking if it isn’t cozy. Now, cozy doesn’t mean the same thing to everyone. It could be the color of the walls, or lots of plants, or the “just-right” plush chair, or dogs and cats on every lap. Cozy might mean something different for each person, but almost everyone agrees on one thing: you have to have blankets.

Light summer blankets or warm winter blankets work. Small blankets or large fit the bill. Neutral colors or bright are equally acceptable. And that’s good news, because knitted blankets are easy and fun to make. You can make them lacy and breezy or thick and warm. A handmade blanket brings a feeling of love and comfort to any home.

One of our favorites is the Richmond Graphic Blanket. It’s composed of four rectangles, each bisected into a black and a white triangle with a simple intarsia technique. The pattern takes advantage of increases and decreases along the diagonal to get nice smooth lines at the color changes. Since the blanket is worked in two pieces, it’s easy to handle and you can make it larger or smaller just by casting on more or fewer stitches.

Skill Level: Easy

Size: 60” / [150 cm] long x 40” / [100 cm] wide.

Gauge: 12 sts and 15 rows = 4” [10 cm] in St st after blocking (gauge is not important for this design)

The Richmond Graphic Blanket is made from 100% Superwash Merino, so you’ll feel like royalty when you cuddle up with it over your shoulders. It’s perfect for a night of Netflix and chill or a cool morning on the balcony with a cup of coffee. Like every pattern you’ll find in I Like Knitting, this comes with all the directions you need, including:

  • A list of all the yarns and tools
  • Row by row instructions
  • Pattern notes
  • Detailed, full-color photography

Chunky Cables Throw

Speaking of cool mornings, the Summer Reading Blankie is a knit take on the classic Zig Zag Crochet afghan that will keep you perfectly comfortable when the breeze blows. Narrow sections of white reverse stockinette stitch enhance the two coordinating colors in this household favorite.

The Corinna Checker Blanket, though a bit heavier, is another classic for any reading nook. The Corinna is knit flat in two colors and the fabric backside makes it easy to hide and stray yarn strands.

For those rainy spring and summer days when all you want to do is hide under a blanket with a new skein of yarn and your favorite knitting needles, the Chunky Cables Throw is a top choice. It’s a quick project, perfect for beginners, but the cables make it look like you spent months working on it.
