Cozy Knitted Blanket Patterns: 4 Free Afghan Knitting Patterns

Nov 18, 2011

Now's the time of year to get cozy under a knitted blanket!

We've gathered four free afghan knitting patterns for you in our new free eBook, Cozy Knitted Blanket Patterns: 4 Free Afghan Knitting Patterns—a fabulous counterpane bedspread; a beautiful lacy afghan with an easy-to-memorize lace repeat; a classic Aran blanket, and a mosaic afghan made up of individually knit squares.

Clockwise from upper left: Yggdrasil Afghan, Graphic Afghan, Mosaic Tile Afghan, and Frost Flower Afghan

Yggdrasil Afghan: Lisa Jacobs' afghan is a stunner: Intricate cable patterns, a bit of leaf lace, multi-directional knitting, and thoughtful heritage inspiration combine for a blanket worth keeping out year-round. Yggdrasil, the legendary Norse world tree, bridged many worlds and provided a home and meeting place for gods and mythological creatures. This afghan, worked in environmentally friendly organic cotton, celebrates the importance of our forests in the health of our planet.

Graphic Afghan: Sarah Fama's afghan is worked in bulky wool with a geometric knit and purl chevron pattern. This reversible knitted blanket knits up quick and will grace your sofa for years to come.

Frost Flower Afghan: This airy afghan, developed by the Interweave Knits staff, is worked in three separate panels. It's a versatile afghan knitting pattern, too—you can change the length and width of the panels to make the blanket any size you want, and even choose one of the patterns to make a shawl!

Mosaic Tile Afghan:
Judith L. Swartz's knit afghan is a beautiful gathering of individual squares sewn together to suggest a mosaic tile wall. You can take the squares along with you, making this blanket design portable, too.

I hope one of these knitted afghan patterns will fit into your décor! Download Cozy Knitted Blanket Patterns: 4 Free Afghan Knitting Patterns now!

I didn't have any problem downloading the afghans that I wanted.I clicked on download and cose to open rather than save, then I glanced at the pattern directions, chose the ones I wanted, clicked on print, and told the printer which pages I wanted and it printed my patterns I chose. Thank you for these patterns. I chose Mosaic Tile Afghan, Frost Flower Afghan. Carol

I haven't been able to download them successfully as an attachment to e-mail (hotmail) which is the only way I can print (sent as an e-mail to the copy desk at my local Office Depot.)

This has always worked before, including from Knitting Daily.

           Thanks for any tips you can offer!  They are beautiful patterns, and I'd love to make a couple of them!

Dear Kathleen,

 I went to download the "Cozy Knitted Blanket Patterns" and had major problems. First, when I attempted to print the pattern in portarit, only the even pages were printed. Then, when I viewed the pages again. I saw they were were in lnadscape. But, when you print in landscapse, the right edges are cut off. Please, to download and print these lovely afghan patterns. Could someone on your staff, please scan this pattern booklet into portarit? To make it easy for us?

I do thank you in advance.

Hi, Kathleen--

I just downloaded and printed out the new e-Book, Cozy Knitted Blanket Patterns. I'm excited to make with the Graphic Afghan or the Mosaic Tile Afghan (or both!). But besides the cover and the back page, the book is formatted with two pages per 8 1/2 x 11 sheet, which makes for some teeny tiny type! Would it be possible to reformat pages 2 through 17 so that they're each one 8 1/2 x 11 page, so I don't have to get out a magnifying glass to read the patterns? If there's a way to format the PDF myself so that I can make the pages bigger, that would be great too and just let me know how to do it.

Thanks a million for continuing to provide such lovely patterns. Just please help my older, tired eyes to see them more clearly. Thanks again.
