Why I created this pattern:
I LOVE Billow yarn from Knit Picks. I love knitting with it. I love the weight of the finished product. This super soft yarn is perfect for baby blankets.
The problem with Billow is there is no stitch definition. I’ve started and ripped out a dozen baby blanket patterns because the lace and star and eyelet stitches get completely lost in the thick and thin nature of the yarn. I designed this pattern to highlight the beauty of Billow through bobbles and cables.
