Hemlock Ring Blanket


My niece, Melanie, knitted this prayer shawl.  She gave it to a friend as a Christmas gift.  It's either a shawl or a blanket- whichever you want it to be.  The designer created it from an old doily pattern.  It can be found on the Brooklyn Tweed blog.  I believe it's a free pattern.


Mel said she doesn't generally block her knitting but it wasn't optional with this project.  It was all bunchy and ripply.  Blocking really did the trick!  It looks fantastic, Mel!
