Winter draughts will be kept well at bay with the beautifully textured Henley Blanket. This easily-memorized design has a regular cellular structure which traps air for a warm, cozy finish. The stitch pattern is completely reversible so that either side of the blanket can be used as the "Right Side". The body of the blanket is worked in one colour while the turn-back is in a contrasting shade, giving a modern feel to a classic design.
The blankets can be worked in hand-spun or purchased 100% wool yarn. The pattern includes instructions for three different sized beds: Single/Twin, Double/Full-size, & Queen-sized. Work several different versions for a cozy winter ahead!
Instructions are given for Single/Twin, Double/Full & Queen-sized blankets.
Twin: 170 x 230cm / 66 x 90 ins.
Double: 200 x 250cm / 78 x 98 ins.
Queen-size: 230 x 260 cm / 90 x 102 ins.
Cascade Yarns, "Cascade 220", 100% Peruvian highland wool.
Yardage: 200m / 220 yds : 100gm / 3.5 oz ball.
Or hand-spun yarn with a similar weight and medium twist can be used instead. Full spinning & dyeing instructions are included in the pattern.
The pattern includes stitch charts and full line-by-line instructions and is available for immediate download as a pdf file formatted for US/Letter-sized paper. The pdf file can be printed out or viewed on a computer, iPad or iPhone directly.
The pattern is also available in a UK version for printing onto A4 stationery. Please let me know if you would prefer this version.
