Need to cozy up with something snuggly? This blanket works up surprisingly quick and you’ll be warm and toasty in no time!
I am loving the texture of the basketweave stitch paired with this yarn. They go together perfectly! With a simple 5 row repeat, this basketweave stitch in easy to create and turns out absolutely gorgeous.
Trust me when I say, you won’t be chilly when snuggling with this blanket. It’s thick, warm, and bound to keep even the coldest toes nice and toasty.
