Free pattern: Golden Days blanket
The call of Outlaw Queen Bee was much too enticing to resist, and I always seemed to be knitting it on days when the sun was hiding. So here we have the Golden Days blanket - if you sat down and focussed, you could knit it up in a couple of evenings. Big needles, chunky yarn, a super smooshy blanket.
I held the cable stitches on my fingers as it was the quickest and easiest way with such big stitches.
