This beautiful, warm double-layer blanket was inspired by the lovely sets of gradient dyed Casbah yarns created by Handmaiden in Halifax.
A surfeit of reading Elizabeth Peter’s Amelia Peabody series resulted in the Egyptian symbology throughout!
Using ombré yarns allows you colour variety but only requires you to transport two balls of yarn at a time, making this a straightforward, carry-around project.
Long gradation ombré yarns (such as those from Knitcircus or Kauni) would also suit this design very well.
This workshop-in-a-pattern features a full written pattern with photos, Stitch-Maps charts, diagrams and fourteen video links.
