Day 8 of 12 Days of Winter kits - Series 6 for 2022
Designed by Rachel Brockman
The thought of being wrapped up in a hand knit blanket while watching your favorite movies tends to bring with it nostalgic memories of the wintertime season. The Keepsake Cover is a perfect example of the comfort blanket, modernized into a beautiful and bold throw made in Uptown Worsted. Sure to brighten any home, the large stripes are whimsical and fun. Soft and cozy, the gorgeous cable pattern worked throughout reminds us of holiday ornaments and makes for a stretchy and squishy texture.
