This cozy blanket wrap I name Turas, which means “journey” in Irish. It features a bold celtic cable in the center, worked on a reverse stockinette background. A Tubular cast-on and bind-off with deep ribbed hems and cable edging, provide a contemporary take on traditional Aran patterning.
The worsted weight yarn crisply defines the alternating panels of twisting cables and honeycomb stitch. This wrap is luxuriously long, but the length can be easily altered by working more or fewer pattern repeats.
