A spectacularly beautiful and warm double-layer blanket. Knit a smaller Zinnia and create a lovely chair pad or coaster!
The Zinnia is something lovely to knit on, whenever you need it. May be worked full size for blanket or part way only for a chair pad or place mat. If you would like to add extra texture to the outlines of the petals, consider the quilting/threading options for making colour changes.
My Zinnia Blanket was knit using Kauni Effektgarn 100% fingering-weight wool.
This pattern features detailed written descriptions, as well as diagrams, graphs and Stitch-maps!
An accompanying sixteen-part Tutorial is available for this pattern.
