Ombre Blanket in Triple Knit / 12 ply
Created by: Ashford
This Queen size blanket designed in Ashford Tekapo Triple Knit / 12 ply in pure New Zealand wool, has a ombre or gradient type of effect because it is knitted with four strands of the yarn held together at a time. This makes a deep, squishy knit fabric to warm and comfort while making it very practical and durable.
Finished size is 210cm x 210 cm and uses 4 of the Natural shades in the range for the Ombre effect - Natural White, Natural Light, Natural Medium and Natural Dark.
You'll need a total of 36 balls of Tekapo and some mighty 18mm Jumbo sized knitting needles or circular needles.
Gauge isn't too important in this blanket and it is easy to knit with simple moss stitch borders and the main part in stocking stitch.
