Colour! We all love a bit of it. Biggan Design are famed for the phenomenal colour range of their yarn (the 8ply/DK comes in 64 shades), so it’s a great choice when you’re knitting a Fair Isle or intarsia pattern, or want to use a sequence of similar, but not identical colours. Biggan Dups of Biggan Design has created this stunning blanket for us, inspired by the colours in a peacock’s tail. “The design is very simple,” sys Debora Bradley, “so if you like knitting while watching television, this would make a god TV project”.

You need to use along circular needle for this project as the blanket is knitted all in one piece, making it very wide.
