Few things are more snugly and warm than a handknit blanket. And when that blanket is worked in a fluffy brioche stitch, you simply can't get more cozy. This easy to work stitch pattern utilizes yarn overs and decreases to create a squishy fabric perfect for bundling up a baby or curling up with on the couch. With two edging options, you can choose the garter border for a refined look or the ruffle for a little flair.

You can call me Kat. I lived and worked around the country, until happily settling in Portland, OR in 2009. My love of knitting blossomed back in 1998, adding to an ever-growing list of creative pursuits. A studio art major in college, I focused on print making, and my perpetual artistic mantra has been: beauty is found in simplicity. Today I use my art training to dream up new patterns with rich texture and visual impact. I am also the manager at Twisted, the friendliest, most well-stocked LYS in Portland, Oregon. My designs have been published in Twist Collective, the Malabrigo Freelance Pattern Project, the Rose City Yarn Crawl Pattern Collection, the Twisted Yarn Shop pattern line, and in collaboration with Blue Moon Fiber Arts, Knitted Wit, and Hazel Knits. When not at the needles, I spend my time gardening, skiing, rock climbing, surfing and mountain biking. I’m also an avid traveler who loves roaming near and far with my dog and my friends.
