Kimmie's Blanket

By: Jen Henry from
Kimmie's Blanket
Kimmies Blanket

"This is my first corner to corner (C2C) blanket design. I've had this Red Heart Super Saver yarn laying around for another project that, like so many, I never got around to designing. I gathered up my yarn and decided to make this simple C2C blanket for my cousin. Yes, her name is Kimmie. Once you learn the row repeat pattern for the colors, you'll be able to sit down and make this simple blanket without having to refer to the pattern. It's that easy."

Pattern Notes

•When changing colors, do not weave ends in as you go. This will make it harder to weave them in at the end. •When weaving in ends at the end, tie a fisherman’s knot between two ends before weaving them off. This is added security in preventing unweaving in this type of stitch. •Remember to check you gauge.


To help with the color changes, I created a couple table references. These tables are best viewed on the website for this pattern.

I have only made corner to corner shawls because the instructions for many blankets do not explain the decrease correctly. This pattern does and even add the color changes. This should work up nicely and the colors are beautiful. It has plenty of instructions which is something I need. Thank you.
