Finnias is a garter stitch blanket that will leave you with one straight seam to whip closed once your knitting is done. The blanket is knit back and forth using three long circular needles so you can knit around the perimeter of the blanket, adding frames of color as the blanket size increases.
You can experiment with colors to create your own personalized blanket combination.
The cotton yarn stipulated in the pattern is exceptionally soft with lovely drape. You can machine wash and dry your blanket. Of course, feel free to substitute with whatever fibers catch your fancy.
