The Reversible Cable Blanket would make an elegant gift for a baby when knit in pastels as shown. It also would make a classic, cozy throw for your sofa, especially if knit using one of the many neutral and more "adult" colors Major has to offer. The stitch pattern is deceptively simple and creates a lofty, reversible fabric.
