STOKEHILL shows off the beauty of an expanse of cables knit in an undyed and sculptural yarn. Minimal edgings keep the focus on the cabled center, and a relatively open gauge creates a light and drapey fabric despite the density of the pattern. The blanket begins with a provisional cast on and at the end of the piece, stitches are bound off using Applied I-cord. Then, provisional cast on stitches are returned to the needle and finished in the same fashion to provide a matching edge. Instructions included for a throw size (shown) or a bedspread size.

Instructions are both written and charted.
