This gorgeous blanket’s unique construction is achieved by using short rows, with the ‘holes’ that this creates incorporated into the design. This allows you to make a sizable blanket completely in one piece, without the need for a super-long circular needle. All you need to do at the end is a row of grafting (instructions included in pattern)!


50" to 55" square, depending on the severity of blocking


Purple model used Patons "Astra", sport weight, 100% acrylic.

Approximately 1900 yards.


* about 2 yards of scrap yarn for provisional cast-on
* spare needle
* tapestry needle
* point protectors recommended
