It has an overall design of six garter-stitch stripes, each of which, on closer inspection, is composed of three alternating colors. The big picture is bold and simple, the details are subtle and fascinating!

Adding to the conversation, our gorgeous Lantern yarn brings texture and depth with its white cotton core wrapped in colorful linen thread. To get the nine skeins you’ll need, pick up our Gradient Stripe Blanket Bundle. It comes in the Robin Redbreast palette you see here, a play of warms and cools, or in Stormy Sea, a pure exploration of the spectrum’s chilly side.
