Bothy Knitted Blanket

On Sale
Added to cart

A bothy is a place of refuge in a storm, a stone or wood built hut tucked away on a mountain or in the wilderness. This blanket is perfect for snuggling down warm on a cold and windy night. Worked in four pieces, joined and finished with an i-cord edge. In simple garter stitch in an off-set log cabin design this blanket is a perfect mindful knit with just enough changes to keep it interesting. Whilst I have used just two colours it could also be a riot of colour or in just one, a real chance to personalise and make it yours.


You will need to be able to cast on, cast off, knit and pick up stitches with full instructions given for the bind off.
