Keep It Cosy

It is COLD in London at the moment (and before you start scoffing, all you Canadians/Scandinavians/people with Real Weather, these things are relative, and I think we can all agree -1°C is pretty nippy).

I spent yesterday evening knitting on the sofa, bundled underneath a blanket to keep out the drafts, and it is with this in mind that I suggest Wool Leaves.


A squishy, cosy blanket that knits up surprisingly fast on big needles with a simple lace repeat, it’s another Brooklyn Tweed classic. You can either use a bulky yarn, or two strands of aran yarn held together.

My friends seem to be sprouting newborns at an alarming rate (seriously, I have three to prepare for in the New Year) so this is a very useful pattern if you’re equally surrounded. Apart from anything else, you won’t have to worry about the little critter out-growing it before you’ve even finished. I made this one in about 10 days. But it also makes a great lap blanket for the sofa or, if your Christmas knitting isn’t too out of control already, it can very easily be sized up.

    I completely understand, once winter comes I am always cold and we get 40 F and people are saying oh its so wonderful out as I tighten my scarf, so -1 is more than a bit nippy ;). Love the blanket, I want one for me!
