♫ The Music ♫
A Journey’s End is a comforting and calming instrumental tune by modern-day composer Peter Gundry. What better way to relax at the end of a long day, when the cold winds of winter swirl the snow throughout the landscape, than by listening to your favorite music and cuddling up under this coziest of blankets?

The pattern comes in two sizes, so whether you just want a quick lap throw (48” x 48”) to keep the chill at bay or want to totally wrap yourself in the lavish warmth of the larger 48” x 60” blanket, the pure luxury of this alpaca yarn will make you wish for more of those stormy winter days!

The blanket begins and ends with a garter stitch border; narrow garter stitch edges that begin (right edge) and end (left edge) with a slipped-stitch mock I-cord create beautifully rounded sides. The center of the blanket is worked in a magical pattern that only requires the knitter to be able to knit and slip stitches to create this fabulous reversible piece.
