I love wearing my lacy wraps and scarves. I wear them to work, to shop, to go out to eat, to run errands.....lets face it.... I wear them anywhere and everywhere.
Recently, I was wearing my Treillage Wrap in Lettuce Green at the shop, when Marilyn asked me about the pattern. This happens rather regularly, since I do work in a yarn shop.
Of course, I was quick to show her that this design had patterns on both sides (this is rare with lace work). It has a trellis-y pattern on one side and a graphic leaf pattern on the other.
Then.....Marilyn had the most brilliant suggestion. I can't believe I hadn't thought of it. Marilyn said that Treillage would make a beautiful throw blanket. And she is right!
So, I worked up the details and have added them to the pattern on Ravelry.
It will take approximately 2200 yards of worsted weight yarn on US# 7 or 8 needles. Casting on 244 stitches. Pictured above: Treillage in the Grapefruit color is in Ultra Alpaca, a worsted weight yarn, a great weight for a throw blanket.
Just a quick side note, this pattern will require blocking to get a suitable width. If you prefer to not block, then I would recommend casting on additional repeats for desired width or using a bulky weight yarn and changing the needle size accordingly.
I really want to make one for myself, I will have to add it to the "list", for now.
