Low Tide

low tide montage

An elegant blanket made up of vertical columns of shells. Sized for Baby as a pram blanket or Adult as a double bed sized blanket. This is not the easiest of stitch combinations so not suitable for a novice, but once you've worked a couple of repeats you do get the hang of it.

Tension - finished, washed / blocked tension of 16 stitches and 23 rows to 10 cm. It's a blanket, though, so the bigger it is the more it's likely to 'grow' with use, probably better to bear that in mind when choosing the yarn.

The yarn the sample is knitted in is labelled as 100% British Machine-washable wool, is extraordinarily good value for money and whilst not the softest, squishiest wool ever it's got enough body to stand up to serious use on a pram or as a top bedcover / throw and comes in a range of beautiful, gentle, neutral colours. And it's British. And I suspect will soften more with further washes.

1(4) 500g balls (770m/840yds per ball) Carter and Parker 100% machine-washable wool, or approximately 770(2980)metres / 840(3228) yards Aran weight yarn to give you the correct tension.

4.5mm needles, either straights for the smaller blanket or an 80 / 100cm circular needle for the bed sized blanket, or the size required to give you the correct tension.
