A simple, elegant blanket design in three sizes (baby square/lap or crib blanket/med throw/lg throw) showcases a beautiful artisan yarn by contrasting a luscious cabled detail against a sleek stockinette background. This piece knits up super fast on larger needles; without a lot of fussy details, it is the perfect vehicle for handspun or slubby yarns, special fibers, or learning to cable. Snuggle in to knit one while the snow flies and tuck it away for a timeless family gift that will be greatly admired and appreciated.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and density and/or drape.
