Strippin’ in the Holler Blanket

The first strip blanket has been waiting for LFTN 2020 workshop, which has been delayed. So let’s see how the blanket turned out.

News Flash

Five blanket strips arrived. We’ve got a 37″X67″ blanket with five different pattern stitches.

Left to right:

Double Lace Rib
Ornamental Cable
Spiral Rib

We’ll figure out the best way to find a good LFTN owner. We hope to receive a few more strips toward a second blanket, so if you’re still knitting, keep on. As soon as there are enough, we’ll assemble a second blanket.

Everyone who has knitted so far has sent directions for their pattern stitch. Here are the two stitches not already reported.
