the college blanket

This is a fun to knit pattern by Laura Aylor. It is the Lizard Ridge Afghan pattern done in 100% wool Noro Kureyon. Laura based this pattern on the Short-Rows striped square in Barbara G. Walker’s Learn to Knit Afghan, a book every knitter should play around with.

It’s been 10 years since this pattern appeared in the Knitty.com and when I saw it, I liked the fact that Laura knit it for her daughter to take to college. Something happy and warm to wrap your child in when they leave home. I knit one for my oldest daughter for freshman year. When the time came for the youngest to go, I started the blanket, but it took me a long time to finish. It’s done now, completed before the end of senior year and so it can still be called the college blanket.

  1. Big fan of your blog and all of your tips! I’d like to give you my own… I always buy from this store in Brazil, they have handmade products made by craftsmen in small cities all over the country, all put together in one store. They also have a brick and mortar store in a beach city called Trancoso, this is their website: http://www.divinostrancoso.com.br. Hope you all like it just as much as I do! =)
