Wilmette is a reversible blanket comprised entirely of knit and purl stitches.  The textured design flows from checks to zigzags and back to checks again for a throw that is both contemporary and classic.  While the knitting is appropriate for the newer knitter, it has plenty of interest for the even the most experienced.  The rhythm of the pattern has a nice zen quality making it the perfect project to work on while binge watching on a long winter evening. 

The pattern is available in three sizes and has both written and charted instructions to suit your preference.  As always, video tutorials are referenced to assist you along the way.

I chose to knit the blanket in Simpliworsted by HiKoo.  I love this yarn for its softness, superior stitch definition and wide array of colors. Because it is machine washable, it makes for worry-free gifting for babies and busy households.
