The Henley Blanket has a beautiful cellular texture and is worked in a soft wool yarn to keep the winter chills at bay. The main part of the blanket is worked in one colour while the turn-back is in a contrasting shade, giving a modern feel to a classic design.
The stitch pattern is completely reversible and is easily-memorised to help speed your knitting. The instructions include three different sizes for Single, Double or Queen-sized beds to give lots of options for your next blanket project.
