The pattern for this linen stitch blanket was from another kit I purchased but I found a similar one online for free if anyone is interested – Linen Stitch blanket

I used an (I) hook and about 2 and a half skeins of the Caron Big Cakes yarn. Finished size is about 37×50 so it’s a pretty dense stitch in this yarn.

It took me a couple weeks to weave those last ends in … I need to make sure I don’t start new blankets before finishing up or I’ll end up with a lot of unfinished blankets (like the bag full of scarves waiting for finishing!).

I just love the texture this stitch creates!


  1. Thanks for the link. My mother used to make blankets with this stitch. I like blankets made of this stitch because there are no loopy holes for the kids to catch their toes in, lol.

  2. Beautiful! I need to try that pattern sometime. I have 2 Big Caron Cakes in purples. Maybe I’ll have to find one more and try this pattern out.
