This blanket is knit with super bulky yarn on big needles. It is an easy pattern that will work well for confident beginners or experienced knitters who enjoy an easy knitting project.

If you would prefer a machine washable yarn you might try Lion Brand Hometown USA. Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick would also be a great choice for this pattern.

The Flint Hills Blanket knitting pattern includes instructions for five blanket sizes so you can make a very small baby blanket, a crib size blanket, a medium or large throw...or a very large afghan. It's easy to adjust the length for any of the sizes...details in the pattern.
Pattern includes instructions for five sizes:
XL: 49.5" wide x 55.25" long
Large: 41.25" wide x 49.75" long
Medium: 38.5" wide x 47" long
Small (Crib/Lap): 35.75" wide x 36" long
Baby: 30.25" wide x 30.5" long
This blanket is knit flat in one piece. I use 38" long circular knitting needles in US size 13. The long length makes it easy to accommodate a lot of stitches when knitting a blanket.
