This graphic lap blanket is worked in four bold colours to create a striking design that will be at home in any stylish living space. The central panel is knitted first, then the side borders are knitted on. Finally, a pop of colour is added with a knitted-on edging.

Stay warm whilst reading, when you don’t quite need a full-size blanket.

Lighthouse Blanket was inspired by images from the covers of different editions of ‘To the Lighthouse’ by Virginia Woolf to create this stranded design and was first published in Knit Now Magazine Issue 45 in March 2015.
