Steeped in tradition, cabled knits provide a link to the past while creating heirlooms for the next generation. The cables in this beautiful little blanket echo those used in the Cridhe Irish Heartbeat child’s sweater and matching hat.

A design which spans the generations: a Reverse Horizontal Rib border surrounds the cabled section which in turn frames the central cabled heart motif in this cozy design which can be used as easily for a baby blanket as a lap rug/lap-ghan.

Pattern now includes two full versions: one for knitters who prefer charts and one for those who prefer row-by-row written instructions.
