Linum is a soft cotton blended yarn with a 20% recycled linen content. Along with knitting up quickly, this worsted weight blanket has a lovely drape and a satisfying balance of colours.
We used the most basic form of intarsia in this blanket, working half in one colour and switching to a second- but don't worry- we've got guidance in the pattern to help you if this is a new technique!
