The inspiration for this blanket came from my recent visit to England. I spent many hours roaming through the beautiful cathedrals and castles scattered throughout England, and was amazed by the intricate detail of the architecture, especially in Gloucester Cathedral. The incredible ceiling of the cloister was absolutely amazing, and I knew I would somehow have to incorporate the beautiful detail work into a knitting pattern. With the upcoming event of a ‘Royal Baby’ I set about designing, sketching, knitting swatches, and finally completing this blanket pattern. This pattern comes with charts, and step by step photo’s, showing exactly how certain stitches are knitted.

PLEASE NOTE: Anyone who has purchased my pattern for the ‘Cathedral Heirloom Blanket prior to 28/05/2015, should have received an updated version for this pattern. I have added written instructions for the Graph/Chart for beginning and end of the blanket. Also changed a YO which appears on page 4 under Commence Centre Blanket Pattern on 3rd row, to read yrn (wrap yarn around needle to make a stitch).
