A generously sized, plush wool blanket is one of my Winter staples and makes curling up on cold evenings that much sweeter. The softly woven cables and horizontal ridged texture of Talon’s stitch pattern combine to create a lush fabric that is perfect for snuggling under. The pattern includes instructions for a large throw or a baby blanket version.
Approximately 1300 (2800) yards of worsted-weight wool yarn
10 (20) skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Shelter (100% American Targhee-Columbia Wool; 140 yards/50g)
Note that the Large size used up virtually all of the 20th skein; you may wish to purchase one additional skein for safety (or work one less chart repeat if you are running short)
