FREE Blanket Knitting Pattern : Thrifty : Brome Fields


This pattern was inspired by Molly Weasley’s blanket in Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone and my HUGE pile of left-over yarn. If you’re looking for a way to use up your left-over yarn, then this is it! Plus, it’s super easy, so you can knit it up while you binge watch all the Harry Potter movies ;) That’s what I’d do any way… just sayin’. Thrifty is the perfect definition for this blanket. Waste not want not. I’m so glad I found a use for all my left-over yarn! ;) {and it’s my husbands favorite blanket}
