What you need to know

This gorgeous knitted picnic blanket by Sian Brown uses intarsia colourwork to create a timeless tartan effect! The blanket uses Rowan Summer Tweed and Rowan All Seasons Cotton to create a rustic effect in beautiful outdoor colours. Sausage rolls, jam sandwiches, thermal flasks full of tea – there's nothing more idyllic than a picnic by the riverbank! Remember to twist your yarns together mid-row to prevent holes forming.
