Just Keep Swimming Blanket
These swimming sea turtles were designed with my youngest son in mind, and I hope you’ll love the sea turtles as much as he does!
Pictured blanket was hooked using Stylecraft Special DK yarn in Khaki, Moss, Petrol, Teal, and bordered in Mocha. Finished size is approximately 29×34 inches (size and yarn amounts may vary depending on personal tension).
This pattern is easily sized up or down to create any size blanket and how to do this is included.
This pattern is written in numerical filet, which is quickly becoming the best filet reading and writing method out there! Clear instructions are given for this easy to understand pattern writing technique. A graph of the pattern is also included for those who prefer that method.
- This pattern can be worked with any weight yarn and gauge is not important.
- Yarn amounts are given DK weight yarn with a finished size of approximately 29×34 inches.
- This pattern can be increased in multiples of 41 stitches across and 25 rows up to make any size blanket.
- I recommend making a swatch (one turtle, 41 sts x 25 rows) in your desired yarn and then measure and decide how many repeats, both horizontal and vertical, you need to get the blanket size you want. This will also help you to estimate your yarn amounts, as they may differ from mine. If you plan to change colors, have 2 of each panel color, in case your tension is looser than mine.
