This circular blanket begins in the center with the star shape. Stripes, brioche, short rows, and eyelets continue around the star to form the large cozy size. Choose DK weight yarn in four contrasting colors or dive into your collection of yarns to make a scrappy colorful version. The Starflanket makes a graphic statement piece for your living room or bedroom.
