A pattern with texture is a reflection of the balance between different stitches. A stitch such as the stockinette stitch (the grandfather of all stitches) by itself is not, typically, aesthetically appealing although it is very versatile and can be knit vertically, horizontally and diagonally or cabled. But when teamed with its companion, the good old garter stitch, the combination is stunning and the details ornate. This blanket juxtaposes both the stitches resulting in a visually appealing creation and texture.
The pattern can be used to make a bigger baby blanket, an afghan, lapghan or throw.
Amount of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Yarn to knit a blanket of this size is approximately 8 balls.
