Remember when you learned to knit and then to purl and then you thought, “Okay, what next?” And someone told you that’s it, those are all the stitches. Wait, what?

Yes, quite a marvel, and exactly why we love a project like our Embossed Triangles Blanket, which demonstrates with ruthless efficiency exactly what two little stitches can do.

Knit-side triangles flicker past purl-side ones, forming squares that tumble across the entire face of the blanket. Despite the rigorous geometry here, our minds turn to nature and her awe-inspiring math skills: pine cones and gemstones, fish scales and feathered friends.

You’ll need just one Cotton Pure On A Cone to make this entire blanket. One hundred percent organically grown Pima cotton, this yarn is incredibly soft and supple, simple and classic, and it, plus some knits and purls, make one heck of a beautiful blanket!
