I'm blanket obsessed. Here's another bulky yarn blanket favorite pattern of mine using Cascade's very soft and bulky Magnum yarn. This should knit up fast.
Eleventh Hour Blanket Pattern
You will need:
For the Main Color (Ecru): 7 skeins of Cascade's Magnum, 100% Wool.
For the Contrast Color (Birch Heather): 1 skein of Cascade Magnum.
A US #36, 40 inch circular needle.
Two US #17 double pointed needles.
