The Bleacher blanket is made long and narrow, meant to warm the laps or shoulders of a family or group of friends (3-4 adults) on those chilly nights at the football game.
Work it in bright, bold school team colors, or a solid color. Made with a yarn that is durable and easy to care for, it can be used both on the bleachers and in the house for Friday night movies and sleepovers. The blanket is worked from the bottom up using basic stitches and an easy to memorize pattern, meaning you can work on it anywhere. The yarn-overs and slightly larger needles create a blanket with great drape, making it easy to fold up and go. The stitch pattern goes all the way to the edge without a border so you can knit until you run out of yarn (if you want it longer to accommodate everyone on your bleacher row!)
With instructions for optional ties, this will be easy to fold or roll up and carry for the journey home. The yarn is soft, but dense enough to keep the chill off. Use for sitting on the ground at baseball games and the football bleachers, but also great for hammocks, porch swings, and park benches!
