The blanket I designed for my favorite niece named Jillian, who will marry the love of her life just after the First of the Year!

Love Grows ... a blanket to cuddle under ...

Love Grows … a blanket to cuddle under …

The lace/eyelet hearts grow slowly as the blanket gets bigger … and to keep the knitting even more fun, I added cabled “spokes” between the hearts to symbolize their lives being intertwined.

Altho this is big … it actually knits up pretty fast using US#11 needles and a bulky, cotton yarn (sample used 13 skeins of Knit Picks Billow in natural). You could also make this in a bulky wool or alpaca … just make sure the yarn used is light and airy, else the blanket will be heavy to knit!

Directions for this beauty are charted and written out.

This is available for immediate download in my Ravelry shop, on Craftsy and over at LoveKnitting (for my European knitters!)
