PATTERN: Chunky Celtic Cable Saxon Braid Blanket
YOU ARE BUYING A FINGER-KNITTING PATTERN, NOT THE FINISHED PRODUCT. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR BUYING YOUR OWN MATERIALS TO COMPLETE THIS PROJECT.
This PDF pattern includes written English instructions, as well as a pattern template.
The Chunky Celtic Cable Saxon Braid blanket is a mixed pattern of cables of different sizes with a centre pattern of a repeating Saxon braid. The Saxon braid is a common feature and centrepiece of Irish Aran knitting. Irish Aran knitting patterns have a long and rich history, originating in the Aran Islands, off the west coast of Ireland. Most commonly seen in sweaters, I have replicated those patterns here in blanket form.
NOTE: The 3rd picture is of a smaller, baby blanket size version of this pattern and is also available for purchase here.
SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate.
SUGGESTED MATERIALS: 5 balls of Bernat Alize Blanket-EZ yarn (6.4oz, 180g) (Image shown is the colour ‘Mauve’).
SUGGESTED TOOLS: No needles required (finger knitting). Scissors.
FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: Approx. 38” by 46” (96.5 cm by 117 cm).
PLEASE NOTE: This pattern will work with any brand of loop yarn, but keep in mind that the size of the loops, and size of the balls/skeins of each brand is different.
Lion Brand Off-The-Hook, Lion Brand Crayola Off-The-Hook, Red Heart Loop-It, and Bernat Alize Puffy yarns can all be used with this pattern, but will yield a blanket with smaller overall dimensions. You will also need more balls/skeins to complete the pattern as is (approximately 2-4, depending on the yarn used).
