A Cable Knit Blanket in kingsize, made in time for Christmas, in Fawn.
I am loving the drape over the sides of the bed!
The Cable Knit blanket is my bestselling knitting pattern by far, available on Etsy or Ravelry via PDF download. I also sell it on Ebay, but due to Ebay rules cannot offer downloads, so for ebayers I print the pattern as an A5 size booklet and send in the post.
The blanket is great fun and fast to knit! I have been using custom-made giant needles, both in pairs and circulars, and a double strand of Cygnet Seriously Chunky yarn.
But now there’s a great place in the UK to find giant yarn and giant needles. It’s called woollymahoosive.com. They have a range of giant yarns, from luxury merino wool to amazingly good lower-priced alternatives, all in beautiful colours.
You can also buy the giant needles there too, which are all hand-turned by the lady herself!
Kits and offers are available. So if you’re thinking of having a go at extreme knitting but could not get hold of the yarn and needles, wait no longer!
Till next time,
