Cast on a beautiful cabled heirloom. Bairn is given in two versions: a large nap blanket knit in Shelter and and a smaller baby blanket worked in Loft. The twining serpentines of the central motif and the echoing cables are easy to track and memorize once they're established, making this a soothing, contemplative knit. Finished dimensions are 35.25 x 51.75 inches (29 x 41.75 inches). You will need 12 skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Shelter (6 skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Loft). You will also need US #8 (#5), 32-inch circular needles (OR size needed to obtain gauge), as well as 32-inch needles one size smaller than gauge needle. Gauge is 16 (20) stitches per inch in reverse stockinette. Shown here in the color Soot.
