Simple, satisfying garter stripes accented with a slip-stitch colourwork band make for a warm and eminently squishable blanket, perfect for curling up with a good book or (of course) another knitting project. Burgoo is worked from side to side, so your stitch gauge affects the length and your row gauge affects the width. To make this blanket, you need to know how to knit, slip stitches, and carry colours up the side (though there are tips on that). Pattern instructions are written, with the mosaic colourwork band both charted and written. Pattern includes tips for adjusting the size of your blanket.
