Wool Leaves

Posted on

It seems like every time I go into a yarn store, I walk out with at least one skein of pink yarn. I just can't help myself, I have so many things I want to make for my little girl on the way. On a recent trip to the yarn shop I came across this lovely magenta Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran and it just so happened to be on sale - of course I had to scoop it up. I knew it would turn into a blanket when I bought it, but didn't know which pattern I'd use at the time.  As you might have noticed, I'm on a major Brooklyn Tweed spree lately (see girasole and topiary just to name a few) so I decided on the Wool Leaves pattern. 192A5139 192A5143 This was a very quick knit because I held the yarn double and it is knit on size 13 needles.  I was able to make the blanket - start to finish - in about 24 hours total.  I loved this pattern. It's very easy, the chart was easy to memorize and it moves quickly on such large needles and yarn. I will most definitely make this blankie again!  192A5154 Isn't the pillow the perfect match too?  I needed a few throw pillows for the bed we have set up in the nursery and as soon as I saw this little guy I just had to have him! 192A5147 Ravelry Project

    Hi Debbie! I got the pillow on Amazon.com — they have several different sizes and it was shipped really quickly. Good luck!

    I’ve always wanted to knit a blanket, but have been daunted by the size. This looks do-able. Thanks
