Stars & Moons Fairisle Blanket

This is a beaded Fairisle blanket or throw, knitted entirely in the round.  It is designed with a steek bridge so you steek your blanket and then add the mitred border.  The pattern includes full instructions on beading.  I do not include steeking instructions as there are several ways to do this.  I use surface crochet.

I rate this as moderate to challenging.  

Yarns, Needles, etc

  • Yarn A – 6 x 50g balls of Rowan Felted Tweed 
  • Yarn B – 3 x 25g balls of Rowan Felted Tweed
