Cabled Bias Blanket

by Sara Elizabeth
(Arizona, USA)

When my dear friend, mother of three girls, called with the exciting news that baby number four was a boy, I immediately began planning a special blanket. I wanted to make a blanket with clean and simple lines and yet retain and heirloom feel. After hours of searching for just the right pattern, I designed this blanket around a simple bias design. The cables flow around the border adding just the right amount of flair.

Since I wanted this to be a very practical gift, I used Lion Brand Wool-ease. The wash-ability is wonderful and the thick yarn made a very cozy blanket. The natural color continues the heirloom feel. Knit on 4.5mm needles, this blanket worked up amazingly fast.
