Ebb & Flow blanket knitting pattern (baby, lap, throw) by Holli Yeoh | Tempest book

Ebb & Flow

Like waves lapping up onto the beach and then receding, curved garter stitch ridges create a simple but effective design element. The graceful curves are achieved with short rows. These blankets knit up quickly in a soft and chunky washable merino wool. The pattern is iffered in three different sizes including baby blanket, lap blanket, and throw.
