Pattern 9774 - Special Chunky

Blanket and Cushion

These blankets are fantastic for adding a pop of colour into any room! The mustard blanket is worked in a ribbed basket weave stitch, blending garter stitch and 2x2 rib together you get a lovely fluid basket weave that just looks fantastic. The Aster blanket uses stocking stitch with a moss stitch stripes move vertical and horizontal that creates a great textured check pattern. Just to add a little bit more colour the garter stitch stripe cushion cover plays with a four colour stripe so you can play with different stripe patterns until your heart is content.
