Leaves swirling in knee-high eddies and loose papers skimming on a breeze, we love how a windy day shakes thing up a bit! With its scattered bits of color, our Windy Day Blanket offers a little disorder without the chaos, like a gust of fresh air. Its fascinating construction embraces the no-sewing rule. Knit all in one piece, you work a garter-stitch triangle, rotate, pick up an adjoining edge, and knit the next one. Never boring and very breezy! For our Windy Day Blanket, we used our plush and cozy Linen Quill Worsted, a mix of fine highland wool, alpaca, and linen. Use the same lively palette we did with our Windy Day Blanket Bundle, all the yarn you need to whip up a Throw size! Click Product Details, above, for more info!
Our Windy Day Blanket Bundle includes 16 skeins of Purl Soho’s Linen Quill Worsted, 50% fine highland wool, 35% alpaca, and 15% linen. Each skein is 164 yards.
