Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, yarn over
  • both charted and written stitch instructions are included

Pattern Description:

Even adults deserve a favorite blanket in which to cuddle and shut out the cares of the world! I am a firm believer that not all lace needs to be in tiny yarn on tiny needles. This beautiful and practical lace blanket is a perfect example of "moose lace", i.e. lace knitted in a large gauge in heavier yarn. The lace makes this blanket lighter in weight for its size.

Construction overview: This blanket is made in one piece. First, the center rectangle is knit flat (i.e. worked back and forth in rows). Then stitches are picked up along the edges of the 4 sides of the rectangle, and the edging is knitted in-the-round.

Gauge:

3.75 stitches/inch over Center lace pattern stitch

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 84" x 56"

Materials:

  • 2400 yards of DK or light worsted weight yarn
  • size US 8 / 5 mm needles suggested
