Instant Gratification? That’s what The Bertha Blanket is not. This hand knit throw requires patience and nothing more. If you’re up for the challenge as I was, 24,000 love stitches later you’ll hold in your hands the most wonderfully, soft, luxurious blanket ever.

I created this pattern and made it for my sister who upon receiving it said, “It’s absolutely GORGEOUS. It’s so soft and luxurious…. and a good weight to it. It’s like wearing a big hug!”

Since then others have made the pattern themselves and even customized it with different yarn and needle sizes.
