Knit Blanket Pattern-Linen Stitch & Crochet Fringe

This Knit Blanket Pattern is perfect for cool Spring and Summer nights. The free, printable pattern uses the Linen Knitting Stitch to create a woven-like fabric and simple crochet to create a lovely crochet fringe edge. 

For all my friends who have been asking for a lightweight knit blanket pattern for these warmer months…this is your lucky day.

This was the first time I used the linen stitch to knit and I am smitten! (Smitten Knitten!)

How to Knit the Linen Stitch

The linen stitch is nothing more than knitting (or purling) every other stitch, while slipping the stitch in-between. By carrying your yarn on the right side when slipping, a woven pattern results. The stitch is worked in multiples of two and is a two-row repeat. The linen stitch is an easy stitch, but it is a bit more time-consuming than a stocking stitch. But, oh my, it is worth it!

As its name implies, the linen stitch creates, to me, more of a woven fabric than a knit and one that is just lovely on blankets, throws, shawls, etc…  It is especially useful for those items that you would like to stay ‘flat’ as it doesn’t curl up at the ends thanks to moving the yarn and slipping stitches.

Once again, it is not a hard stitch to learn…there’s a tad bit of a learning curve, but once you get the hang of it, your brain and hands just take over.

And this is one stitch in which the back looks just as lovely as the front

Blocking your Blanket

Once you’ve spent the time to create your beautiful knit blanket, make sure you finish it properly by blocking it. The active blocking time will only take 30-45 minutes, with another 1-2 days of dry time, so plan accordingly. Follow this link for instructions on how to block your knitting and the materials I use.

If you want to resize your blanket, I have explained that process in this post: How to Resize a Blanket, Washcloth or Towel.

Berroco’s Remix (a worsted weight yarn) and Remix Light (a DK weight yarn) were perfect for this pattern. Not only do I love the blend of linen, silk, cotton, acrylic, and nylon; but the nubby and soft lightweight yarn is also machine washable! SCORE! An imperative for a blanket, to be sure.

And Remix has an interesting story. This yarn is the result of garnetting discarded garments and fabric from the fashion industry throughout Europe. So the ‘remix’ name is quite appropros…it’s the recycling and remixing of discarded fabric to create this soft and tweedy yarn. That’s quite cool.

I made two videos to explain the whole process.  The first video shows the linen stitch for the knitted blanket body.  The second video gives instructions on the crochet edge and tassels.

For the first, linen stitch video I also show the tips I use to stay on pattern and to bind off in pattern

For those of you new to crochet, I hope that the second video will be helpful as I tried to show specific steps to make the crochet fringe.

I am definitely keeping this blanket for our home, but have already received a request…this is my kind of knit project to make and gift. And I imagine I will use the same yarns; I love how they knit up in this pattern. If you do plan to make this blanket as a gift, consider adding one of these care tags, detailing the yarn fiber content and washing instructions.

  1. Lynn this is beautiful… What a wonderful talent you have and I’m in complete awe… Check out Fancy Fibers in Farmersville, TX – they have an online Etsy shop. Anyways she raises the animals, shears and then cleans, spins and dyes the yarn. Her products are amazing and I know you would enjoy using them. Years ago we went on a field trip to her place and then volunteered one time on sheering day. (I know her daughter) Something to google anyways. and I know you could make something absolutely amazing with her yarn. Have a great day – Carole

  11. This blanket is beautiful Lynn and the crochet trim just puts it over the top! The texture of the finished piece is so unique and would be such a nice addition to any room’s decor. I would definitely be interested in a knitting course that you offered. I have learned many crafts over the years, but knitting is something I have never done, so I would be a total beginner.

    1. I’ve got your name Dorene. Just barely in the planning stage so it will be a little while, but I will let you know when things start forming up. I do love learning new skills…really wanting an embroidery machine for my birthday to try my hand at that!

      Hope your weekend has been great!

      Hugs, Lynn

  13. Boa noite. Não consegui ter acesso ao padrão. Já fiz minha inscrição. Como proceder?
    Good evening. I could not access the pattern.
    I already applied.
    How to proceed?

  14. Absolutely LOVE this pattern and yarn selection. I’m in Canada and to order this yarn makes it cost prohibitive. Do you have any suggestions for similar yarn, that is less costly? Thank you.
    I’m a fairly experienced knitter, so likely wouldn’t access a course. But, the videos are always appreciated.

    1. Ugh, I hate to hear that Dawn. None of your local stores carry Berroco? Or is it that they do, but the price is so high because of the currency differences?

      I did find this yarn sub chart, but there is a disclaimer because the remix is such an unusual yarn.


      Let me know what you find out, I imagine you aren’t the only one with that problem. I will also reach out to my contact at Berroco and find out what she says.


  15. Hi Lyne. I’m really nee to upur site and sm lobing it. My mom tuvht me to knit as a child but I dropped it a lot of years ago. Now I have one grandchild and hope there will be more some day. I would love the opportunity to learn again and hopefully learn so much more. I’m realky enjoying ypur videos. This linen stitch looks beautiful and can’t wait to try it.

    1. Hi Gwen, I am so happy to have you here!

      Wishing you a lovely day my friend,

      Hugs, Lynn

  16. I would love a knitting class! I am left handed and no one yet has been able to teach my arthritic fumble fingers how to knit. The blanket is beautiful and I would love to make them for my kids and grandkids. Thanks for offering to teach!
