This sweet fairytale blanket -- a castle surrounded by vines and turret ribs -- can be used as a baby’s blanket or as a small throw or lap blanket.

Directions for two versions are provided: the original with the whimsical castle motif as well as a “turret rib only” version that omits the central castle panel. Directions for both versions are given in chart form and with row-by-row instructions (non-charted).

The blanket shown used approximately 1000 yards, but it is recommended that you purchase slightly more than that to account for differences in gauge and to allow for swatching.
