A spectacularly beautiful and warm double-layer blanket. This engaging knit will hold your interest. The linear nature of the motifs makes the pattern easy to follow. A smaller Mardi Gras to create a lovely chair pad or coaster!
A gauge of 5.5 st pairs x 8 rows per inch, gives a blanket approximately 55” across.
Any portion of this motif may be used on projects of all sizes, from coaster to blanket. Small ones are great fun, but a blanket is lovely to knit on; a dependable companion to work on whenever you need it.
An heirloom size project will become a family treasure.
An accompanying thirteen-part Tutorial is available for this pattern.
My Mardi Gras Blanket was knit using Malabrigo Yarn, but any fingering-weight yarn will suit this project.
