A New Blanket

A new blanket for me to knit. I have only ever knit a baby blanket so this will be new things for me. I am so excited! I think it will look lovely in my family room. I'm sure the kids are going to fight over it. LOL! Pattern courtesy of The Pearl Bee.




■7 skeins of Knit Collage's Pixie Dust, a blend of Wool, Mohair and Pixie Sparkles. This color is "Lemon Meringue".
■A US #36, 32 or 40 inch circular needle.

The Pattern
Gauge
1 stitch = approximately 1 inch in 1 x 1 rib

Finished Size
Approximately 26 inches wide by 56 inches long

Begin
Cast on 27 stitches.

Row 1: *K1, p1, repeat from * to last stitch, k1.

Row 2: *P1, k1, repeat from * to last stitch, p1.

Repeat Rows 1 and 2 until you have used all 7 skeins minus about 4 yards (or until piece measures 56 inches).

Bind off in pattern and weave in the ends. (Little Tip: Rather than wresting this yarn through the eye of a tapestry needle, just use your hands to weave in the ends.)


Doesn't it look comfy? I can't wait to knit this baby up. And it'll be done just in time for the cold winter ahead of me.
