Cat’s Paw Blanket

August 7, 2014 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Join Wendy on Thursdays, August 7, 14 & 21 from 2 to 4. $75 plus materials.

A combination of delicate and geometric, this cat is! The Cat’s Paw Blanket uses color and pattern to their best advantage. Choose your recipient’s favorite colors, choose school colors (like this one), choose a set of colors you love together…..or simply choose one color you cannot resist! Then add the simple lace-and-block pattern. There will be enough of interest to keep you going with the lacy sections, alternating with blocks of smooth-sailing stockinette. This blanket is customizable regarding size, and the sky’s the limit in yarn choice. Make yours bulky and snuggly for a cold winter in Misti Alpaca, Swans Island Bulky, or Blue Sky Worsted Hand Dyes; or lighter for our California climate using lovely, squishy Baah Sonoma, Debbie Bliss Paloma, or SweetGeorgia Trinity Worsted (love that variegation in color!)….. or for the lightest and most delicious blanket, Jade Sapphire 4-ply cashmere, or Baah Aspen. Ahhhhh……
