The Dude Blanket is simple, durable, and not too frilly, just like most guys like things.
I used Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn, but any soft worsted weight yarn will be great for this project!
This is one of those projects that is mindless and easy to work on when watching TV or chatting with friends. You and the special “dude” in your life will love it!
This blanket is great for guys and girls alike! Don’t let the name fool you!
The Dude Blanket can be made in any color combination you like or make it solid! You can also change the size of the blanket by working in multiples of 2+1.
