Looking for your next blanket project? Below I have gathered some nice knitting kits including options for both beginners and more adventurous knitters. For summer blankets I recommend you choose cotton blend yarns and if you are looking for a warm blanket got with wool.
Garter Stitch Blanket Kit
Simple garter stitch blanket suitable for beginner-level knitters or if you are looking for a mindless knitting project. The techniques you’ll need to use:
- Knit stitch
The kit includes the pattern and KnitPicks Comfy Color Mist yarn which is a soft worsted-weight cotton and acrylic blend. In addition, you need size 9 (5.5mm) 47-60″ circular needles.
Cotton Plaid Throw Kit
Intarsia and two strands of yarn are used to create the simulated plaid design. The techniques are suitable for intermediate knitters.
The kit includes the pattern and KnitPicks Cotlin yarn which is a DK-weight cotton and linen blend. The yarn is a great choice in situations when wool might be too warm.
In addition, you need size 10.5 (6.5 mm) 24″ or longer circular needles.
Stornoway Throw Kit
Beautiful cables makes this blanket elegant. The pattern is suitable for intermediate knitters.
The kit includes a downloadable pdf-pattern and KnitPicks Wool of the Andes Worsted yarn. The yarn is non-superwash wool which is wonderfully warm and durable but needs to be hand washed.
In addition, you need size 8 (5mm) straight and circular needles.
Arm Knitted Chunky Blanket Kit
All you need for making this blanket is your own arms and the right amount of super soft merino wool yarn. The pattern is suitable for beginners.
The kit includes a downloadable pdf-pattern with a link to video tutorial and a suitable amount of yarn based on the size of the blanket.
The design is fairly simple and suitable for beginner-level knitters but the variegated color yarn makes it special.
The yarn included in the kit is fingering-weight wool so the end result will be light and warm. However, there are quite many stitches to knit but it will be totally worth it!
