My sister is Seriously Cold.  I mean, she'll wrap up in a blanket with a sweater in 25'C weather.   She's Seriously Cold.  All.The.Time.  So I made her this!!


It's oddly shaped... in that it's more of a square, then a rectangle... I added a few extra stitches to the sides. Shouldn't have.


But it's okay, because she fits under it quite nicely!


Even if she flips it so the stripes run vertical, it will reach from her neck to her toes, because of the stretch of the 2x2 ribbing.  But this will be my last blanket for quite a while.... It was cumbersome to knit, and not being a seriously cold person, once the blanket gets long, it get's really hot to knit under....

I used Knit Picks Biggo, held double!  Knit on 17's.  This is the pattern I used (more or less)

Oh Belladune, this is lovely. AugustBell is right, you are a seriously sweet sister. I'm cold all the time, unless I'm moving, which is a lot because I don't sit still very well, so this would be great. We have a stash of blankets for the living room but this would beat them all.

Thanks! There are lots of blankets in her living room too.  But I think this one will beat them all too. It's super snugly!

This is seriously cute.
Love the ribbed pattern look.
Looks like it was a hit with sissy.   Smiley
