This blanket’s unique construction is achieved by using short rows, with the ‘holes’ that this creates incorporated into the design. This allows you to make a sizable blanket completely in one piece, without the need for a super-long circular needle. All you need to do at the end is a row of grafting (instructions included in pattern)!
