PATTERN: Dara Knot Celtic 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 pattern templates and row-by-row stitch instructions. For general instructions on knitting with Alize Puffy More yarn, please see my free instruction sheet here.
The Dara Knot Celtic Blanket has a central motif of a large Celtic Knot, with a 3-D effect frame border. The Dara knot is a traditional Celtic design, meant to represent strength, with the word Dara originating from the Gaelic word 'doire', meaning 'oak tree'. Like all Alize Puffy More designs, this pattern is repeated on the back side of the blanket in inverse colours.
SKILL LEVEL: Advanced.
SUGGESTED MATERIALS: 8 balls of Alize Puffy More yarn (5.3oz, 150g) (Image shown is the colour 6271).
SUGGESTED TOOLS: No needles required (finger knitting). Scissors. (Because the loops of this product are quite small, you may find it easier to use a crochet hook than your fingers. I use a US J10/6 mm hook).
FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: Approx. 39” by 43” (99 cm by 109 cm).
PLEASE NOTE: Alize Puffy More is a double-stranded yarn which is manufactured in a way to create double-sided colourwork patterns.
Currently, the only substitute for this yarn is Bernat Alize Blanket-EZ Graph It yarn, a new product soon to be available in North America. This new yarn will come in larger skeins, so you will need approximately 15% fewer skeins to complete this project as-is. Also, the loops are slightly taller, so your finished blanket will be 25% longer.
