We have a new pattern for you today! YEEE!
World Tour Sweater Blanket – Travel Wrap. A gorgeous knitted piece that functions both as a blanket (great for plane travel or road trips!) and/or a sweater / vest.
I got the idea for this one day while sitting in an airplane – it was freezing and I thought it would just be genius to have a blanket that when I needed to, I could toss on and actually wear through the airport. Yay!!
Designed for you by Emily Walton.
•Ideal for plane travel or road trips. Wear around the office even if you have crazy coworkers that crank up the AC. Wear as a beach coverup! Lots of options!
•This cozy travel blanket comes with a surprise: armholes! Now you can wrap up in your favorite blanket and still keep your hands free to get things done! Split textures keep this piece interesting and add a focal point at the sleeve split. You’ll never want to leave home without it, but you might have to fight the rest of the family to keep it!
•This blanket is knit width wise from the bottom edge to the top.
•A garter stitch border is worked simultaneously with the body of the blanket.
•Once the textured section at the bottom of the body is complete, the top part of the body will be worked in Stockinette in sections, with the remaining sts placed on hold until the armholes are complete, and then the held sts will be returned to the needles to complete the top part of the body and border.
•Width can easily be adjusted by casting on more or fewer sts in a multiple of 2. Length can be adjusted by working each section to your desired length before moving on to the next section. If adjusting the armhole size, keep track of the number of rows worked so you can work each section the same. Of course, you can also omit the armholes entirely and just make a fun blanket!
•If working with multiple skeins of the same hand-dyed color, I strongly recommend alternating skeins to avoid color pooling or an obvious stripe when switching skeins. Watch a video of this technique here.
