On the Needles: Eco Cloud Chevron Colour-Block Blanket

One of the stand-out yarns for us this season is Cascade’s Eco Cloud – this is an incredibly soft alpaca (30%) / merino (70%) blend with a chainette, or braided, construction which lends strength and loft while minimizing the potential for shedding or pilling.  The yarn is produced naturally with no chemicals and is availabe in 10 undyed colours. It’s an ideal yarn for winter accessories as well as bigger sweater and blanket projects and we’ve been knitting with it like crazy!

Our latest project is an Eco Cloud Chevron Colour-Block Blanket. Adapting the pattern developed for our Missoni Inspired Scarf, Lisa is knitting this luxurious throw using 4 shades of the Eco Cloud palette. The “in-progress” photo below was taken a little while ago and the blanket is now nearly done and available for viewing / petting / snuggling in store.  Pattern is available free with yarn purchase!

    Oh, that would make a lovely baby blanket! My sister is about 8-10 weeks pregnant, I need to think about starting the blanket… I’ll pass by sometime soon to see it!

    Thanks for suggesting this yarn. I’m loving the feel of it and how it knits up.
