Pattern description from Weekend Knitting: “When there’s a mild chill in the air, a lap blanket is a comforting fix. Made by combining a fluffy mohair blend yarn with a smooth wool-llama yarn in a bold color like chartreuse, it can also be a fun decorating detail. The lap-blanket size is easy to finish in a weekend. For knitters wanting a bigger blanket (and happy to invest more than a weekend’s worth of time), instructions for a larger afghan are also provided.”

Additional Gauge: 11 sts and 24 rows = 4” (10 cm) in garter stitch, slightly stretched, using smaller needles and CC
