It seems like every knit blanket pattern today is made up of only one or two different stitches. Those are nice, but if you're a knitter who likes their projects to have a bit of pizazz, the Modern Elegance Knit Blanket is right up your alley. Made up of two different kinds of panels featuring both cables and lace, this pattern will teach you how to knit a blanket you can pass down to your children and your children's children. If you're not a fan of classic white, we think this blanket would look excellent in any other light color.

This is really gorgeous when done. I worked on this throughout the year. I love the finished product so much. This is a great afghan to use as decoration. It looks so pretty. The instructions are pretty easy to follow. By the time you get one square done, you pretty much have it down. I am thinking about making another to give as a gift to my mother in law.

This is a lovely pattern for a blanket. However, I think personally I would not have the patience or time to knit 16 of the squares, then seam them all together, then pick up 240 stitches along the edge to knit the border, and do that four times. That said, if you did take the time to make this, it would be an heirloom gift for someone, it's that beautiful.

I really like the look of this afghan. I wish I could see it more closely, but I r ally like how the angles seem to fit together. Is there anyway we could see a picture of it all laid out flat?
