This Diamonds and Cables pattern has been very popular since I posted one of my first hand knit pillow covers. When a customer asked for this design as a blanket, I modified my pattern and using a double thickness 100% wool, worsted weight yarn I hand knit this super warm 60"x72" blanket. 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 cables over different numbers of rows.... but it will be worth the hard work! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Use a cable needle Knit back and forth on a circular needle using a large number of stitches Work two different cables over different numbers of rows Knit with two strands of yarn GAUGE 4"x4" (10cmx10cm) = 14 stitches and 20 rows on 8mm/US11/UK1 needle SUGGESTED YARN 5300 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.
