Alltan Cable Blanket PDF
Alltan, meaning “brook” or “stream” in Gaelic, is so named for the rippling cables covering two sections of the blanket on either side of a central path. On the Alltan Cable Blanket, Beside each “stream” appear “fences” and each section is edged with “river rock.” Actually, the entire scene is composed of cables to give you a fun, cozy knit project. Imagining a pastoral stroll beside a rippling brook as you knit is a just a bonus! Alltan is worked all in one piece with lots of generous cables in a choice of two lengths.
