“THE STRESS of the day melts away as you pull the mas­sive, soft ca­bles of this blan­ket around you, en­velop­ing your­self in lux­ury and let­ting tran­quil­lity over­come you,” says de­signer Melissa Schaschwary. This ca­bled blan­ket is worked in one piece from the bot­tom up, us­ing a bulky yarn and 9mm nee­dles to cre­ate a sat­is­fy­ingly thick fabric; cir­cu­lar nee­dles are used to ac­com­mo­date the large num­ber of stitches. The project is knit­ted in Mal­abrigo’s Chunky wool, which comes in a huge range of neu­trals, pas­tels, brights, and self-strip­ing colour­ways.
