The Debbie Bliss winter blanket knitalong is here!Published on October 13, 2023 2 min read
Join us for a gorgeous knitting journey to make Debbie Bliss’ sweet Winter Blanket! This heirloom project can be cherished and handed down to generations to come, in super soft merino wool that is cozy and warm.
The Winter Blanket is made of modular squares using different techniques, so you will learn how to work Fair Isle, Intarsia, Swiss Darning/Duplicate Stitch along the way, as well as how to seam your squares together using invisible mattress stitch.
The KAL can be made in two sizes, a baby blanket or a throw - and because it is made from squares, you can buy extra yarn and make it bigger if you wish!
The Winter Blanket is knitted in beautifully soft Debbie Bliss Rialto DK yarn, knitted on a 4mm needle. The yarn is washable on a 30 degree cycle, and has a gorgeous twist that really shows off your stitches!
We have video tutorials for each square, and a tutorial for how to seam the squares together using invisible mattress stitch!
