Malt by Tin Can Knits

The Malt Blanket is the first project in The Simple Collection – a series of 8 beautiful free patterns with clear tutorials from dynamic duo Alexa and Emily of Tin Can Knits. Patterns from the collection will be released a few at a time over the next months. We love the minimalist styling of this blanket which provides a perfect foundation for the use of beautiful hand-dyed yarns. This particular pattern calls for worsted / aran weight yarn – we think Tanis Fiber Arts Green Label would make a great choice (think Lucky Penny or Iris!) but we have loads of other options in stock.
Finished measurements: 30×32 inches
Yarn: 750 yds aran/worsted weight yarn
Needles: US #8 / 5.0 mm (or size required to obtain gauge)
Gauge: 18 sts and 22 rows/ 4? in stockinette stitch
