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