This airily delicious blanket, with its swirls of openwork and cable patterning, provides a cozy barrier between you and the cold when fall and winter winds roar. The pattern includes three sizes (lap or baby blanket/throw/coverlet), but is easily adjusted for a longer or wider piece. The simple pattern is very approachable for novices, especially on the larger needles used here, but also engaging and fun for experienced knitters when a quick gift or TV project is called for. Work in a fluffy yarn as shown for a lighter-than-air result; a smoother yarn will offer more depth and stitch definition.

Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, and yardage requirement.

yardage requirement for (lap or baby blanket/throw/coverlet): 780(1600, 3225) yards

Sample shown is the baby blanket/lap blanket size, knit in Bare Naked Wools Chebris Worsted, color Frappé
