12 Weeks of Gifting – Blocks and Ribs Throw

Knit Picks Blocks & Ribs Throw

It’s that time of year when makers go into overdrive: holiday gifting season! As the world of technological gadgets and gizmos seems to be growing at an astronomical rate, the desire (and the necessity) to hit the pause button and settle into an afternoon of crafting is all the more enticing. What better way to express one’s creativity and generosity than with a handmade gift for the ones we love?

To get you started, we have launched our annual 12 Weeks of Gifting, where we release a brand new free pattern every Tuesday, counting down the days to mid December. We’ll be featuring all sorts of projects – from cozy throws to gorgeous shawls – a little something for everyone on your list!  We have set up a handy 12 Weeks of Gifting calendar, so be sure check back every Tuesday to find a new free pattern.

First up – the Blocks and Ribs Throw! The crisp stitch definition achieved in this knit is thanks in part to Wool of the Andes Superwash Bulky, a machine-washable bulky wool yarn.
