Reversible Blanket Knitting Patterns
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.
