Winter is here. One of the best knitting projects for winter evenings is a blanket. I kind of like having the weight of a blanket coming off the needles in my lap to keep me warm – a little crazy I know. The Tonal Blanket, a free pattern offered at Purl Soho, has an interesting textured, ombré look. The blanket comes in a crib and throw size, and even a crochet version, if you want to work more quickly. Make one even more unique by choosing your own colorway.
