Twist Collective Sleepy Monkey Blanket PDF
Sweet stroller-sized blanket in stranded knitting for your sleepy monkey. The blanket is knit circularly and steeked. The central squares are worked individually in the round, and the steeks are reinforced with machine-sewn stitches, then cut apart to create flat pieces of knitting. Instructions are included to knit the squares flat instead.
