Product Details

Experience Level: Advanced Beginner to Intermediate

The Zoe Blanket is a celebration of bold stripes and classic cables. Color choice makes a big impact on the finished look of this blanket. Make it soft, preppy, or modern depending on your palette. This is a great project for a new cable knitter as it uses a simple six-stitch cable.

Construction Details: The blanket is worked in three strips with four alternating pattern squares on each. The strips are seamed and then the edging is crocheted on at the end.

Finished Measurements: 27" x 36"

Each square measures about 10", and one can easily make larger or smaller blankets simply by increasing or decreasing the number of strips and squares they make.

Contrast Colors for cable squares: 65 yards per square - six total cabled squares - 390 yards total combined.

Edging Color: 60 yards

These blankets can also be made with sport weight (CYCA #2) yarn double stranded. Double the yardage would be needed.
