Knitting Patterns for Reversible Blankets

Tired of knitting blankets and afghans that only look good on one side? These knitting patterns are reversible. Almost all are double sided stitch patterns that look the same on both sides. A few have minor differences – such as a reverse of the color – but still look great when you fold them over.

To get the knitting patterns, scroll down the page to the individual pattern you want and click on the link to that pattern.

These patterns are not my designs but links to other designers who have generously shared their patterns. If you have questions about how to knit a specific pattern, please contact the designer directly.

All links on this site are for informational purposes, but please note that some links are to affiliate sellers that pay me a small commission on purchases.
