This corner to corner blanket is great for those cold winter days.
Is there anything cozier than a warm, classic Buffalo Plaid for snuggling? The Black, Red and darker Cardinal Red squares bring back memories of being a child and warming up under a comforting blanket after skating or playing in the snow. These colours are a natural for anyone who loves to decorate with a country or cabin look. When the weather changes, just bringing out a blanket like this can change your décor to the look of a cabin in the north woods.
Of course, this isn’t just a plain plaid design. A majestic stag, silhouetted in Natural, dramatically sets this blanket apart.
The blanket is worked in the popular corner to corner method. Working from a graph, the first row at a bottom corner consists of one block (a chain space and 3 double crochet).
As you work the second row, with two blocks, the blanket gets both longer and wider. Additional blocks are added as more rows are worked, working from the included full colour graph for colour placement. The clear instructions explain changing colours and using bobbins, so no colour changes show on the front of the blanket.
When the 45” width is reached, you will increase only on one side of each row, to continue adding length to the blanket. At the top of the graph, the full width and length are completed. Now the work goes faster, as you decrease on each row to complete the other top corner. It’s so much fun to see the outline of a noble stag head be created as you work.
The blanket is made in our Mary Maxim Starlette, our best selling worsted weight yarn. For years knitters and crocheters have relied on Starlette for long lasting, easy care items that are snuggly soft and stay soft wash after wash. If someone you love is lucky enough to receive this as a gift, you know it will be treasured for years.
Kit includes Mary Maxim Starlette yarns and instructions. Requires crochet hook size 5.0 mm. Finished size 45 x 54.5". Intermediate Crochet.
