Free Pattern To Crochet a King Size Farmhouse Blanket

50% Off Yarn Bowls
Free Pattern to crochet a king size Farmhouse Blanket! As many of you know my house is full of cozy crochet blankets!  We have many favourites but nothing beats the soft coziness of my Chevron Tassel throw made in Bernat Blanket Yarn!  My brother has been asking for one and I thought Christmas would be the time to make him something extra big to wrap himself up in.  As much as I love that blanket I wanted to make something new and much bigger.  I seem to have an obscene collection of this yarn so I began combining soft neutrals with a pop of teal.

I chose a pretty textured stitch with an interesting stripe pattern.  I picked out 4 colours and used a total of  8-300g balls.  Play around with your own favourite colors to match the room.  The selection of Blanket yarn continues to grow so there’s many great choices.

For those of you new to my page my husband and I are Dairy Farmers.  The original Farm House on our property burnt down and the home we live in today was built in 1950.  Although it’s not the original farmhouse it still has many unique farmhouse characteristics with its large pine trim and deep set windows.  We’ve slowly been renovating our home to capture a modern Farmhouse look.  After making this blanket I almost wanted to keep it for our newly renovated Master Bedroom. But I know that my sister-in law will enjoy it and I can’t keep everything!

I’m very sentimental and handmade items hold deep meaning for me.  My Grandfather made my headboard and nightstands.  He wants to also make our dressers.  Store bought things just don’t hold the meaning, character or quality that you’ll find in handmade.  They really are irreplaceable.  In the New year I’d like to design pillows for myself and my littles.  Maybe with a word or phrase that means something to each of us.  My room really has become a calming sanctuary this last month.  Something I’ve really needed.  The merino throw I will be keeping for my bed you can find HERE

This season I’ve spent a significant amount of time reflecting, prioritizing and planning for the coming year.  I hope that you’ve all had a meaningful Christmas and that we can all start the new year with renewed hope and excitement for the year ahead.
