When the cold wind blows, you will love snuggling down with this blanket and pillow set. They are knit in warm, wonderful Ultra Alpaca Chunky, which is an alpaca/wool blend that combines the best of both fibers. The pattern stitches are worked from your choice of either written or charted instructions. The blanket measures 41" x 45" and has an overall cable pattern and garter stitch border. The pillow cover is designed for an 18" pillow form and combines a staghorn cable with overall textured stitch. It begins with a provisional cast-on and then the two sides of the pillow are joined at the top using the kitchener stitch. The blanket and pillow can be hand washed and dried flat.
The kit includes the pattern and yarn. For this project you will also need:
- 32" circular needle in US size 10 OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE
- cable needle
- 5 stitch markers
- spare size 10 needle for bind-off
- waste yarn for provisional cast-on
- 18" square knite-edge pillow form
