100% Qiviut king size bed cover


I really enjoyed making this Blanket and would love to do it again.This was a custom made order going to a couple in Texas.......they will be warm! I machine knit the whole blanket in 3 sections and used my new linker machine to put it all together and added a sturdy rib around the whole perimeter and again used the linker......i love that machine.......it makes finishing so much easier and neater.Made from 100% pure qiviut the blanket measures 90''X 90'' and took 960 grams to complete.This was the largest project i have made todate from pure qiviut and it put a big dent in my yarn stash!

  5. Wow! Beautiful doesn't begin to describe this blanket.

    I can only imagine how warm this must have kept you as you worked on it! (Kind of like how firewood warms you a few times even before you burn it.)

    1. Katie, qiviut is such a wonderful light weight fibre to work with & the blanket only becomes softer with age, its an awesome Magical Fibre !
