All you need to knit your own beautifully cabled couch throw or baby blanket in textured thick & thin handspun merino. Perfect as a gift for the knitter in your life!

Kit includes:

:: Seven (7) eight ounce skeins of handspun thick & thin merino yarn

:: Colour printed pattern

:: Stitch markers

:: Beautiful gift packaging

Cables are just pure luxury, don't you think? This throw blanket is full of them, intertwining to create gorgeous diamonds across the main field of the blanket.

This pattern is named for my cousin Kaiya, for whom the original design was created. As a woman and a nurse, Kaiya has a passion for sharing the story of her journey with pregnancy loss and infertility in order to help others, and in her honour, 25% of the sale price of every kit will go directly to the Lois Hole Hospital Women's Society.

My own two youngest daughters were born from high-risk pregnancies in this hospital, so supporting their programs for women's health is truly a personal privilege and pleasure. Please know how grateful I am for helping me to contribute by downloading and knitting this pattern!

This blanket is meant to be knit by hand, using seed stitch for the borders and cable stitches to create the diamond pattern in the main body of the blanket.

What you'll need:

:: 10 mm (US size 15) 14” knitting needles
:: Cable needle
:: Darning needle
:: Scissors
:: Blocking pads and pins
:: Optional: stitch markers, for marking your cables; felting needle, for joining yarns without knots; measuring tape.
