You will receive both the Wrap and Blanket pattern with your purchase. Please do not purchase both. They are the same pattern worked at different gauge.  This pattern is part of the Secret Garden e-book.

My eldest daughter was born 11 days early when my parents were overseas. They were heartbroken that they missed the first 5 days of their first grandchild’s life. I knit my first Secret Garden project for my cousin’s baby. The baby was born in the UK in the fall of 2020 when pandemic travel restrictions prevented my cousin’s parents and all the family in Canada from welcoming our newest member in person. As I knit, I wished for my Uncle and Aunt to get to hold their first grandchild as soon as possible.

This blanket is created using the Fission Knitting technique. Two fingering weight yarns are held together to create a worsted weight knit. The round, well twisted construction of Malabrigo sock makes the cables pop of surface of the blanket to cocoon baby in the squishiest warmth.

This stitch pattern can be worked in many weights of yarn. The Secret Garden Wrap pattern is included in your purchase as it is the same as this pattern but knit holding 2 lace weight yarns together. Please find a gauge you like with your yarn and you may choose to work any number of horizontal or vertical repeats to adjust the size.

The Fission Knitting Tutorials show how to work the most common cables in this pattern. Large print charts are available as a separate pdf.
