New Pattern: Transenna Blanket!

Meet my newest pattern, Transenna! Lavender knit blanket with cables

Basically as soon as it started getting chilly and rainy around here, I was itching to start something with cables. I already had a bunch of sweaters in progress, and I've wanted a heavier, knit blanket to snuggle up on the couch with for a while now. I poked around for a week or so trying to find a pattern I liked, but nothing was grabbing me, so I made my own!

I kind of just experimented with cables until I found some I liked, so this blanket uses a combination that ends up looking like an old lead glass window (which is where the name came from!).

It's knit with yarn held doubled in Cascade Yarns Cherub Aran, which remains one of my favorite yarns. It's so, so soft, but can be machine washed and dried (I don't recommend drying it, as it can seriously shorten the life of your knits, but the point is that you can). This made it not only crazy warm, but also gave it a gorgeous drape and weight.

I made this one in lavender (which was very quickly claimed by a friend), then immediately cast on to make one in green for a Christmas present, and I have plans to make another in blue for our new house!

It may look really complicated, but I've tried my best to break it down into easy to read parts, and the pattern comes with both written and charted instructions. It's available for download in my Ravelry store. I hope you have as much fun making it as I did designing it, and as always, please let me know if you have any questions!
