The stitch is also easy to memorise and to work. I love this type of stitch pattern when I am knitting a large project. It becomes almost meditative as your hands work across the rows. Before you know it, another repeat has been done and then another. Then very soon the whole blanket is finished!
The blankets are worked in 100% wool – always the best choice for warm and cozy throws and bedspreads. I like Cascade 220 for this type of project as it is freely available and comes in a wide range of colours. It is also nicely soft and has great stitch definition. However, you could use any similar yarn if you have a personal favourite!
The pattern features three different sizes of blanket to fit a Single/Twin bed, a Double/Full-sized or a Queen‐sized bed. Whichever size you make you are sure to be able to keep the worst of the chills away during the winter ahead.
