PATTERN: Super Chunky Staghorn Cable 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.
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. The staghorn cable is a common design in Aran sweaters, and is meant to denote strength. The Super Chunky Staghorn Cable Blanket is a repeating pattern of staghorn cable 'stripes' with a larger double-Staghorn centre motif.
SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate.
SUGGESTED MATERIALS: 9 balls of Lion Brand Off-The-Hook Yarn (3.5 oz/100g (Image shown is the colour ‘Beach Sand’).
SUGGESTED TOOLS: No needles required (finger knitting). Scissors.
FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: Approx. 43” by 51” (109 cm by 129.5 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, Red Heart Loop-It and Alize Puffy (European) yarns can all be used with this pattern as is and will yield a blanket of approximately the same same size.
If you use Bernat Alize Blanket-EZ yarn, the loops are larger, so the blanket will be larger; and because the balls are larger (6.4 oz/180g), only 5-6 balls should be needed.
