Air conditioning a bit too cold? Blanket.
Fall’s breeze bringing you a chill? Cozy up with a blanket.
A little bit of winter frost getting to your toes? You need a blanket.
A Spring day on the wrong side of sunny? Blanket.
Need some extra comfort. A blanket will fix it.
Blankets are the world’s gift to keep us warm and comfy during the cold and uncomfortable. The Quartet is a modern take on the classic knit cable blanket. The easy cable knit blanket pattern works you through the blanket in strips which makes the process SO simple. Are you ready for the warmth and comfort? Check out the knitting pattern below!
Easy Blanket Construction
To make the blanket easy to work up and have different colors for the different sections without needing to work with 9 different threads, the blanket is worked in strips.
Each strip is knit independently and then sewed to the others. This also allows you to experiment and learn impressive looking yet surprisingly easy cables without having to worry about frogging tons of work in case of mistakes or keep track of different cable designs at the same time.
The cable stripes are alternated by plain garter stitch sections. These are worked in the other direction (widthwise).
One of my big criteria for blankets is that they have to be perfectly reversible. I don’t want to spend time putting the pretty side up when I’m crawling under it so I like both sides to be equally gorgeous as much as possible.
All cables are worked in 1×1 ribbing making the Quartet Blanket 100% reversible!
