|Across the Diamond blanket knitting pattern.|
|New chunky blanket knitting pattern - "Across the Diamond".|
I am a life long Kansas City Royals baseball fan. I remember going to a few games as a child with my family and watching many games on TV. When I attended college in another state, the Royals won the World Series. I watched all of the games in the dorm basement on a small television with only one other person...a girl from St. Louis...who was cheering for the other team...the Cardinals. Last year, our city was decked out in royal blue as we watched the Royals win the World Series. It was a really memorable event that brought our city together.
|Easy to knit blanket with wide seed stitch border.|
Approximate dimensions after blocking:
XL Blanket: 48" wide x 52" long
Large Throw: 41" wide x 47" long
Medium Throw: 37.5" wide x 42" long
Small Crib / Lap Blanket: 34" wide x 37" long
Baby Blanket: 30.5" wide x 32" long
It is easy to make any of the blanket sizes longer. The pattern includes more information, including estimates on how much additional yarn would be needed to make each size blanket longer.
The blanket is knit in one piece, back and forth on long circular knitting needles. I use US size 13 knitting needles 38" in length. This length can easily accommodate a 40" - 50" wide blanket...or a bit larger. It's really worth investing in set of circular needles with a long cord if you like to knit blankets.
|Stitch markers are handy for keeping track of the pattern.|
