Using 15mm needles, you can create the cosiest blanket around. We use circular needles but on the straight – knitting back and forth as you normally would.

We’ve knit the blanket as a long runner in Emerald, and a square lap blanket in emerald and mustard stripes.
Emerald runner: 100cm wide by 225cm long (Cast on 60)
Striped blanket: 140cm wide x 100cm long (Cast on 94)
Go from 1m square right up to 2.5m square, or any variations inbetween. The graph pictured shows you how much yarn you will need.
