another FO, another blanket...

promise i’m not only working on blankets… but they’re all i seem to be finishing lately! :wink:

this one got mailed off today to my cousin mona… she’s dealing with a recurrence of cancer with some metastases. she’s in treatment, but it’s… iffy. so i wanted to have another handmade hug.

pattern is Quilt and Cable Blanket by Cambria Washington: Knitware & Patterns https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/quilt-and-cable-blanket

yarn used is just basic wash-and-go caron jumbo in ‘PEACOCK VARIEGATE’ as it’s got all her favorite colors https://www.yarnspirations.com/caron-jumbo-yarn/294009.html

it was… a slog. 40 row repeat and it’s almost all 2x2 rib. and it got heavy. and unweildy, as blankets often do. but in the end i really love it, and it washed, blocked, beatifully, all kinds of drape and squish. if i did it again, it’s another one where i’d likely knit in the round and steek… and i might even do beads or jewelry rings instead of the wraps that pinch the cables in.

happy knitting everyone!

cheers, 'topher :wink:

That’s gorgeous! My favorite colors too! I’m struggling with finishing blanket yarn afghans which are way, way less work than that!
