Cozy, textured and just the right size to snuggle up in, Cloud Cover is a blanket that’s sure to keep you warm. With a classic design, the super chunky yarn makes the texture pop. Simple techniques mean that the colour and the yarn bring the pattern to life and create a blanket with a cuddly feel. Subtle enough to suit a range of decorating tastes; don’t you want to curl up under this blanket with something to knit? Due to the yarn weight and needles used, Cloud Cover is a quick knit. The pattern uses basic skills, making it suitable for any knitter.

Cloud Cover was inspired by my grandfather and designed to gift him something to help him transition into a new home and a new phase of life. Cloud Cover was designed and knit with love and family in mind – intended to be the type of item that could help to transform a new and foreign environment into a home. To bring joy, warmth and comfort to someone I love. I hope that this will also bring similar warmth and comfort to all the homes that Cloud Covers are knitted for.
