Make this beautiful textured blanket in just about 3 hours. The video will guide you through every step of knitting the blanket - from casting on stitches to working in seed stitch to finishing off. You will also learn how to put stitches aside if you want to take a break, and how to resume knitting when you are ready to work on the blanket again.
