I really like the ribbed edge on this blanket and then how the ribs flow into the cables. Very nice! I also really like the chunky weight yarn in blankets. It gives a nice warmth and knits up just a little more quickly than worsted weight.

Oh wow, talk about a comfy-looking blanket! This is exactly the type of thing I'd love to wrap myself up in and watch the snow fall. Cable knitting is such a cool technique!

This blanket is breathtaking! I've never tried cables, but I might have to learn, just so I can make this gorgeous blanket!

I love the look of cable knit throws! Plus, I really like the soft cream color.
