Raya’s Blanket was designed in honor of the birth of a dear friend’s granddaughter.

The pattern is suitable for advanced beginners and up.

The 8 row repeat becomes easy to read once you’ve knit a couple of repeats.

You can knit the blanket in either DK weight or Worsted weight.

  • DK Weight:

928 yards on US #5 (3.75mm) 24”/60cm long circular needle.

  • Worsted Weight:

743 yards on US #7 (5mm) 24”/60cm long circular needle.

I treated the Pima 100 like a DK weight. The yarn is a pleasure to knit with and, per the mom, “easy to wash, perfect size, calming colors and they love to snuggle with them”. I can’t think of a better endorsement.
