Cridhe Irish Heartbeat Blanket (PDF Knitting Pattern)
♫ The Music ♫
Irish Heartbeat by Van Morrison speaks of family and comfort:
“Oh won’t you stay
Stay a while with your own ones
Don’t ever stray
Stray so far from your own ones…”
Steeped in tradition, cabled knits provide a link to the past while creating heirlooms for the next generation.
Truly a design that spans the generations, a reverse horizontal rib border surrounds the cabled section which in turn frames the central cabled heart motif in this cozy design which can be used as easily for a beloved baby blanket as a lap rug on a chilly wintry night in front of the fire.
The pattern includes two full versions: one for knitters who prefer charts and one for those who prefer row-by-row written instructions.
