Strid Blanket Pattern

There are two versions of the blanket in this pattern, an aran version or a dk version.

For this pattern I used:

Aran Yarn & Amounts Aran weight: Six 100g hanks of WYS Bluefaced Leicester Aran – Undyed (100% Bluefaced Leicester wool, 166m/182yds per 100g)
Aran Metres: 996m.
Aran Needles: 5mm.

Aran Gauge (tension): 18 stitches and 24 rows to 10cm/4ins square over stocking stitch using 5mm needles.

Aran Measurements: approx. 104cm x approx. 100cm.


DK Yarn & Amounts DK weight: Six 50g balls of Merino 120 DK (100% Merino wool, 120m/131yds per 50g)
DK Metres: 710m.
DK Needles: 4mm.

DK Gauge (tension): 21 stitches and 28 rows to 10cm/4ins square over stocking stitch using 4mm needles.

DK Measurements: approx. 55cm x approx. 92cm.

My design ideas and advice: To me, this blanket evokes feelings of joy, comfort and warmth. The simple square pattern is easy to knit and looks very effective. I always come back to this stitch pattern for blankets. It’s one of my favourites and I love how it looks like the stitches are flowing in and out of each other. It is a delight to knit and to know that love is knitted into every stitch.
