Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

A big part of what it means to live in Vancouver for me is being close to the ocean, the forest, and the mountains. There is nothing better than looking across the water to the majestic peaks of the North Shore. This blanket was inspired by a trip to Whistler, along the Sea to Sky highway. The road curves among the peaks with a drop to the Pacific on the other side.
