Ushya: Quick Knits

This blanket in Mirasol’s Ushya yarn is knit in a squishy 2 row rib pattern.  Knit with US 15 needles, it moves along quickly.

The finished blanket is pretty large, measuring 60″ x 79″, great to share on the couch during movie night or keep it all to yourself while reading on a winter afternoon.

Ushya is a braided yarn, meaning that the plies are not spun together, which adds strength and reduces the possibility of pilling. Composed of 98% Merino wool and 2% Polyamide, it is soft and springy.

The blanket, found in Mirasol Book#19 Ushya,  uses 16 hanks of yarn, although if you wanted an even larger blanket, you could just keep going until you reach the size desired.

 

Best of all, Mirasol is part of our Rocky Mountain Sale,  so the yarn is 30% off through 4:30 CDT Saturday July 30.
