What you need to know

Welcome to the next part of Siân Brown’s brilliant blanket-along! We kick off with a clever cable design, called Wave and Pod. Have a read of our information panel before you start. No nautical knit is complete without a classic anchor motif. You’ll need separate balls of yarn for each colour section on the intarsia chart. However, if you find it tricky, you can always Swiss darn the anchor instead. Remember, the yarn amounts here are for the full blanket. Parts one, two and three can be downloaded at and the penultimate instalment will appear in our October issue, on sale Thursday 27th August.
