I made this blanket as a wedding gift for my sister using blue Goa (cotton/silk?) and Noro Silk Garden (wool/silk). I love the colors in Noro yarn and used a few different kinds. I think the pathways all blend nicely.
I also liked this pattern, it was simple but still looks somewhat complex. It also is sort of reversible without being a rib knit so you gotta love that!
The only thing is that because I used a thinner yarn the texture came out rather "spongy". I think this would be better in a chunky or bulky. And, despite checking my gauge FOUR times, it came out much narrower than expected.
I was casting off the DAY OF THE WEDDING! and ended up giving it to her without weaving in the ends (I swear Im going to do that next time I `visit!). Frankly, she wont notice, but it bothers me!
