Willow Creek Throw (Revised Version)

I knitted this blanket for a friend. Original pattern is here and it calls for knitting 4 panels and sewing them together at the end.
I revised the pattern to knit it in one piece to avoid sewing at the end .
My blanket is  a bigger size (46" x 60") which was equivalent to knitting 6 panels and would not recommend doing bigger than 6 panels as the blanket can get really heavy.
I used a bigger needle size cause I liked the loose look of the cables.
It is a beautiful, big, warm and cozy blanket .
My version of the pattern is at the end of this post, just replace the main body of the original pattern.
Enjoy and A Happy New Year!

  1. Do you think using only one strand would work?

    1. Hi Heather,
      Single strand of Worsted weight won't but Chunky or Bulky weight will. Make sure to do the gauge.
