In Issue 71 we've launched our first ever mystery blanket knit-along, designed by our resident knitting expert, Debbie Tomkies. Join us and Debbie for the next year to knit your own beautiful blanket.
Debbie is an expert designer and author of knitting books, with over 25 years experience of teaching new skills to knitters. She's been Knit Now's resident expert since Issue 1 and so we could think of nobody better to design our very first blanket knit-along! She's designed three different blankets which you can choose from, depending on your experience.

It is knitted in West Yorkshire Spinners Essentials Aire Valley DK, in Grey, Nutmeg, Cream, Brown, Navy and Cardamom. You'll need 1 ball each for a small blanket or 2 balls each for a large blanket.
