Exclusive to Jimmy Beans Wool Blanket Club 2020

Fishing For Koi is a colourful throw/blanket that is made using DK weight yarn held double stranded (or a single strand of Aran or Bulky weight yarn) and up to Ten colours. A cosy blanket with garter stitch short rows that angle and balance left and right, giving it a dramatic appearance, as well as fun colour-changing possibilities.

An ideal project for using up odd skeins that have nowhere to go – now they’ll be right at home here, in this project!

The Main Colour yarn is the link between the other colours and act as breakers and lines. The Contrast Colours (9 colours) are the triangular segments that feature throughout the whole blanket.
