eight by eight / Zabeth Loisel Weiner

more info

Clever use of elongated stitches in faux cables forms the unique pattern in this worsted weight blanket, designed by Zabeth Loisel Weiner. Geometric shapes using knit-purl textures and the appearance of figure-eights from the faux cable (which does not require a cable needle to work!) give this classic design its name.

YARN:

lark / lichen 126 / 14 (15, 18) skeins

NEEDLES:

32" circular in sizes US 7 and 8 [4.5 and 5 mm]

GAUGE:

28 sts and 32 rows = 5" [12.5 cm] in pattern stitch with larger needles, after blocking
