I’ve seen lots of snuggly, knitted blankets in the shops recently, but of course why buy when you can make, right?!
I found a pattern I liked – Lovers Knot by Lionbrand – but I did make a couple of changes to it, the main one being to alter one of the cable patterns that I wasn’t keen on.
It took a lot of knitting time, and being cables it meant that it required concentration at all times, so not a mindless knit in front of the telly, but here it is, finished, and I love it!
It lives on the back of the settee, and is pulled down on a regular basis, it’s soft and warm, and great for sitting under to watch a film with the little one (and more often than not, Wilf too)!
