Mistake Stitch Knee Rug

A very simple ribbed pattern that makes up a squishy, soft and cuddly blanket. It is a knee rug, but stretches easily to fit over a bed.

Warning: it becomes boring to knit, so be creative with color!


Yarn used 5 x 8ply 100 grams Acrylic, but any 8ply yarn could be used. Tension is not important for this simple knit. Make sure you change colors on the same side for conformity.

Needles: 4.5mm circular needles – item knitted flat.

The Pattern:

Cast on 182. sts

Begin mistake stitch pattern

Row 1: * K2, P2* repeat from * to end K2, P1

This one row forms the ribbed pattern

Continue until blanket measures the length you require.

Cast off and sew in ends.
