Loop 2016

There’s a loud hush that falls over the city with the first big snow of the year. The sounds of trucks and sirens are
dampened; people’s voices are library-quiet. Here in New York, we’re still waiting for our first snowfall, and me… I’m
waiting under our Colorful Corner Blanket!

It’s the type of blanket that softens the sounds and comforts the spirit. As I worked on the bias, from one colorful
corner to a field of Heirloom White, I thought of how this blanket will carry me out of fall into winter and through to
spring, as heart-warming a blanket of snow on the city.

I knit our Colorful Corner Blanket in our joyfully softGentle Giant merino. At 1 1/2 stitches to the inch, this beauty is
incredibly fast to knit. It’s also simple to shop for, with our Gentle Giant Blanket Bundles, available in six beautiful
palettes. So, stitch one up this holiday season, for those who have had their first snow or those who are still waiting!

Sometimes the gray days of winter beg for a playful touch! This season’s Granny Square Blanket in Gentle Giant

6 stitches = 4 inches in garter stitch

Notes
When joining new skeins, I recommend wet splicing the ends together. This will eliminate having to weave in a
bunch of bulky tails. For instructions on how, please visit our Wet Splice Tutorial.
