Dizzyingly simple once the spiral stitch pattern’s been established, this blanket just goes round and round, with back bump stitches giving the fabric bounce, stretch, and mesmerizing visual appeal.
Make an adult-sized blanket in bulky-weight yarn or snuggle a baby in a sport-weight version – giving someone you love a Swirly has never been easier.
