This textured cable throw is not for the faint hearted, but for the intermediate & experienced knitter who loves a challenge. This throw is a whopping 64" wide and 74.75" long and has a good heft with luxurious warmth. While it may be a booger to finish, you will be so happy that you attempted this gorgeous blanket! Ruth Cross also adds an optional fringe trim on the throw (yarn for fringe is not included since the amount is unspecified in the book).
Gift Set includes the book Knits At Home: Rustic Designs for the Modern Nest (pattern inside) and selected yarn. For yarn winding services, click here.
