Modern Elegance Knit Blanket

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.

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?
