This is a shout out for all my knitters - it’s a knit version of a style of blanket that is traditionally crochet. The pattern looks intricate but it’s actually so easy to pick up that after one stripe, your fingers will be flying on autopilot. I promise you’re going to immediately fall in love with it. The pattern’s written for two colours but you can easily customise them - try a monochrome blanket if you like, or maybe even a rainbow one!

The pattern comes with both Australian (metric) and US (imperial) sizes and measurements. When you purchase you’ll receive the pattern instantly as a PDF download. I love getting questions and feedback from my customers, you can find all my contact details at the end of the pattern.

Gauge and final size aren’t too important for this - as long as the gauge is close to correct your blanket will be lovely.
