Evening Mesa Blanket knitting pattern by Holli Yeoh

Evening Mesa Blanket

Transport yourself to the southwest desert with the Evening Mesa Blanket. The unique construction of this blanket is created by working narrow strips in garter stitch on the bias with increases along one edge and decreases along the other. The strips are joined together modularly while they are worked.
