Pattern Description

Giraffes, elephants, and ostriches parade around this blanket with such verve that you almost feel like you’re on a safari. The blanket is made up of four identical triangles; it’s knit in the round, from the center out, on double-pointed and circular needles. The color patterns are knit using the intarsia method. Although this is a complex color pattern, the stitch is straight stockinette.
