Description

This super-quick blanket in four sizes (baby blanket/lap or crib blanket/med throw/lg throw] will quickly become a family favorite, but also makes for a fun, sideline knitting project any time of year. Knit in light, lofty worsted weight wool and an appealing, reversible motif, it’s just the thing for a special graduation or wedding gift. And an enjoyable project for both beginners and experienced knitters alike—the bold motif is a snap to learn and simple to execute; the sizing is easily adjusted to suit different yardages or yarn weights.
