Develop your knitting and chart reading skills with this beautiful festive blanket. Perfect to snuggle up in during the Christmas holidays, or to create a winter wonderland at home, this KAL is certainly not to be missed.
‘’When we think of Christmas, we think of reindeers, Christmas trees, snow and being brought together by the love of the Christmas spirit. This is what we tried to capture in our Christmas blanket, featuring all of these things to really bring the feeling of Christmas into your home. All this, whilst being hand knitted with love to keep you cosy on those winter nights. ‘’ – Jenny Watson
