a quick blanket to knit
This project fulfilled the need for a lovely gift in a short amount of time.
With a simple lace that creates a sharp chevron and color changes that are made one strand at a time to gradually blend into one another, this blanket is easy enough for the beginner knitter but charming enough for an experienced one.
The yarn is held triple stranded to create a dense fabric and large stitches for fast and warm knitting. Because of the triple stranding and chevron stitch pattern Two Weeks in February would look wonderful in hand-dyed, multicolored or even scrap yarn.
