Knit, Purl, Cables
Such a stunning giant cable knit blanket – suitable for advanced knitters and the most beautiful cable design.
This giant cable knit blanket can be created in around 3 hours using Giant Merino yarn by Lauren Aston Designs. This blanket has a huge wow factor and looks perfect over a bed or chair.
If you’ve not done giant knitting before, it may take a little practice to get the tension right, but using our merino yarn is a joy on the giant needles you can whip it up in no time at all!
This pattern also has all the information you’ll need to process your giant ombre blanket – it is knit in unspun wool so it is essential that you process your finished blanket to avoid shedding.
160cm x 80cm approx – it is possible to make bigger by repeating the cable pattern.
Please note that this knitting pattern is for personal use only and not for resale in any capacity.
