Comments about Needles: 40"" US Size 8 (5.0mm) circular needles C224 Eco+ Quilt and Cable Blanket (Free):
This is my current favorite blanket pattern. I played around with a variety of different yarns, different needles, different gauges, before I settled on the recommended wool. I particularly like the slight ruffle to the edge. It's a good weight and size, large without being unwieldy. This is an excellent pattern for a beginner since it looks elegant and unusual without actually being difficult or fussy. It's also nice to make something large that doesn't require constantly checking the instructions. Don't overthink it: just knit the knits and purl the purls. The pattern is obvious and I can knit it without paying close attention, making it a good choice for long trips or binge watching TV on snowy days. Everyone is getting these for Christmas this year!
