Cool Cables – Free Knit Throw Blanket Pattern

Free Knit Throw Blanket Pattern Pin

Hello my knitting friends! I know its been a while since I last shared a pattern…. life’s been sprinting ahead of me! But, guess what? I’ve got some great news! Starting April, I’ll be working on Leelee Knits full-time! I’m beyond excited to kick things off because I’ve got some major plans to roll out even more helpful knitting content for you all this year. And today, I’m so happy to finally share my latest knit throw pattern with you all – the Cool Cables Blanket.

The Cool Cables Blanket Knitting Pattern

I designed this throw to be a rewarding project that looks sophisticated with its cable design but is still approachable enough for those of you who would like to stretch your knitting skills a bit. Blanket knitting is a great way to spend some relaxing time with your needles, especially if you’re ready to take on something a little more engaging than the basics. And the end result is a beautiful, cozy piece of art that you’ll be proud to show off as well as snuggle under!

This time, I tried something a bit different! I wrote the pattern in two sizes, giving you the option to choose if you want to make the bigger or smaller version. I’m often asked about adjusting the size of my blanket patterns, so I thought, why not simplify the process?! The smaller version of this blanket is would look awesome thrown over the sofa to add a pop of colour and texture to your home aesthetic, while the larger one is perfect to cuddle under for date nights at home watching movies.

Since this pattern has a more intricate cabled design, I’d be happy to create a video tutorial for how to knit the cables used in this blanket. Please let me know if this is something you’d like to see in the comments at the end of this post!

Choosing the Right Yarn for Your Knit Blanket

I chose Knit Picks Twill worsted weight yarn for this pattern because of how soft and durable it is, making it perfect for a beautiful and comfortable hand knit throw. I love that it has 100% merino content too! Merino yarn is the best you can get for knitting cables that pop, while still feeling luxurious against the skin without any pilling.

I can’t wait to see the beautiful blankets you all come up with, so don’t forget to tag @leelee_knits in your Instagram photos!
