Passap Knit Horse Head Blanket

passap blanket reversible

I knit a few of these horse blankets for friends. It was knit on the Passap E6000 with technique 186 which is a tuck double bed 2 color technique. There is no text so the blanket is reversible. The finished size after washing was 64″ x 73.”

The grey and navy blanket was the first one I knit (see photos below). I noticed the muzzle seemed a bit long, so I reshaped and deleted stitches until I got it the way I liked it. I ended up removing rows and modifying a large part of the stitches on the inner design also for more definition. The mustard and white blanket (shown above) is the final design after modifications.

Summer Slice Machine Knit Blanket

The Summer Slice machine knit blanket can be lemon, orange, or lime!! I chose to make an Orange Slice and Lemon Slice. I plan on making a Lime Slice too! My blankets were knit on a Passap E6000 knitting machine. You can knit this on any double bed machine, though it will be narrower on a different machine. I used technique 186 on the Passap which is a double bed tuck pattern. Technique 186 results in a very wide blanket when knit full bed.

The finished size is approximately 60″ wide by 71″ long (with 2 strands each color 2/24 yarn) which is a great size for an adult throw. This design has been popular with teenagers!

Cast on 88-0-88 for double bed. Both end needles are on the back bed. Knit 250 pattern rows, 1000 lock passes. I cast off using the method described on this post.

I am sharing the Wincrea .bmp and Designaknit .stp files for the Summer Slice machine knit blanket. There will be a blank border on the bottom. You can add a name there if you want to. 🙂
