Christmas Blanket Pattern

Christmas isn’t too far off. If you were thinking about knitting a blanket or two or five (LOL), I have a free pattern for you. I found this graphic free online. I edited it a bit and converted it in Designaknit. I am sharing the Designaknit .stp and Wincrea .bmp files.

This blanket was knit on the Passap E6000 double bed with technique 186. I can be knit on any electronic machine that has 200 needles (though the finished size will be much smaller). Cast on 88-0-88. Both end needles on back bed (after cast on put a stitch on left back bed end needle). Cast on number 3. Reset the row counter on the lock and knit 250 pattern rows (1000 lock passes). The cast off I use is detailed on this post. The finished size of my blanket is 66″ wide by 78″ long. I used 2/24 doubled for each color.

Geode Knit Blanket Pattern

The Geode blanket was knit on the Passap E6000. I have listed this pattern on my Etsy. It comes with detailed .pdf instructions for cast on/cast off, a Wincrea file .bmp, and a Designaknit file .stp. The .pdf instructions and the .bmp are emailed from Etsy, but Etsy does not store .stp files. I email the .stp file to the buyer after checkout.

I am hoping to get some more patterns on Etsy. I will still continue to have free patterns on my website too! Even though the pattern details for the Geode blanket are written for the Passap E6000, the .stp file can be used on any electronic machine with 200 needles. The finished size will. of course, be much smaller if knit with a different technique or or a different machine.


Passap Knit Horse Head Blanket

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.
