This 60"x72" blanket was inspired by one of my pillow cover designs: I was asked by a customer to knit a blanket in the same pattern and this is the result. Its knit in a double thickness 100% wool, worsted yarn. This pattern is really for the experienced knitter who is willing to put in a lot of hours of knitting! Its knit back and forth on a circular needle to accomodate the large number of stitches. You will need to know how to use a cable needle and be able to knit two different patterns over different numbers of rows.... but it will be worth the hard work! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Work cables Work patterns over different number of rows simultaneously GAUGE 4"x4" (10 x 10 cm) on 8mm/US11/UK1 = 16 stitches and 20 rows SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 60"x72" 152 x 182cm SUGGESTED YARN 4620 yards of Worsted weight

Originally from the UK, and after almost 13 years in Texas, I now live in beautiful Colorado with my husband and sons. Easily outnumbered by boys in my house, I am queen of my little realm, hence the title Ladyship! Ever since my Mum taught me to knit and sew I have loved the creative process and experimenting with design. I find pillow covers to be the perfect way to combine my love of design and the textures that can be created with a single strand of yarn. I especially love experimenting with cable patterns.
