Go to your Happy Place

We all have a place that we hold dear in our hearts – our own ‘Happy Place’. Now you can have two more to wrap yourself in – the Happy Place Afghans!

These afghans make beautiful bedspreads and feature whimsical scenes from some popular happy destinations. The Forest afghan takes you to a dense, geometric pine forest with an owl for company, while the Ocean afghan invites you to share the rolling waves with an inquisitive whale.

Both afghans are worked in Brava worsted using basic Intarsia techniques, with a little duplicate stitch to bring out the details in the animal friends.

Though these blankets are great for ‘kids’ of all ages, they’d be especially adorable as a bedspread in a child’s room. At 60×72″, they will easily cover a twin or full size bed!

Both afghans are available as kits, or use your imagination and create your own Happy Place by buying the downloadable patterns and using our Kit Builder to choose your own colors.

Washable, warm and whimsical, the Happy Place afghans are destined to become the most loved blankets in your home!

    I live in Maine, and every winter I make at least three blankets, ‘coz once you have a couple feet you’re also staying warm while you knit. These patterns add some fun at the end of the process!

    Also want to pitch a plea for the Arden Bag pattern to be included in the Knitpicks pattern download area. You nailed that satchel design, which is now all over the fashion mags!
