Cast on a True Stripes Blanket in Plein Air and enjoy this simple, striking knit!

  • To make the stripes, you knit in easy garter stitch rows, switching directions between stripes to create graphic impact (and to make the knitting super fun)!
  • And since you attach each row as you go, there’s no sewing… Just weave in your ends, and voilà!
  • A beautiful mix of 67% merino wool and 33% organically grown cotton, Plein Air combines the best of both the animal and plant worlds. The wool lends body to the yarn so that it’s airy and lofty, while the cotton adds a pleasant weight so that your finished blanket drapes perfectly over your lap.
  • Plein Air’s colors have a gorgeous heathered quality that comes from the slight difference in how the wool and cotton absorb dye, and the True Stripes Blanket makes lovely use of its lively colors to create bold stripes against an Heirloom White background.

Get started with a True Stripes Blanket Bundle. They come in six pretty, tonal palettes and are available in crib and throw sizes… A very easy way to cast on!
