Susan's Woven Stripes Blanket


I finished knitting Susan's Woven Stripes blanket last week, and as promised and with Susan's permission, have the pattern ready to share with you. (see link below)


The edges of my blanket were quite ruffled (probably due to the acrylic yarn I used); however, I followed WoolWinder's tip to "kill" the acrylic. The blanket now has a nice drape and shape. Directions on how to kill acrylic can be found here.

Thank you, Bonnie for helping me set up a Google Document page to share the pattern. Your directions worked perfectly.

Update: at WoolWinder's request, here is a view of the back.

  2. This is timely as I just finished an acrylic cardigan. I knew I would have to kill the acrylic to get the drape I needed.

  7. Wow, it does look very complicated. But, ooh it would use some of the excess yarn I have hanging around. But what would I stop so I could do this? Quilting, knitting socks, counted cross stitch small projects? Decisions, decisions! I'll keep the pattern for a future use. Glad the instructions for loading the pattern worked for you.

  12. that is a lovely blanket - thanks for sharing the pattern. That might make a much better handknit gift for the groom than the hemlock. I'm making shawls for the bride, the bridal party, the MOG, MOB, and SMOB - the groom should get something, no? g
