The classic cabled blanket gets a modern update with a simple, but elegant, lattice-like texture and lush garter stitch borders. To add additional charm, consider using your favorite tonal handpainted yarn. Worked flat in a worsted-weight yarn, the Sugarplums blanket comes in three useful sizes, from a modern carriage blanket to a lap throw and a full sized afghan. The blanket is also knit as one piece, making finishing a breeze. So grab your favorite cable needle and get ready to stay cozy all Winter long!
PS: the last photo shows the ribbed-like pattern on the back of the blanket!
