Based on the shawl A Study in Grey, this blanket has the same fundamental elements, but is knit on larger needles with a heavier yarn for a faster knit. This pattern also calls for a machine washable yarn, to make it as household friendly as possible. Available in two sizes, the baby size is perfect for bundling a baby up in, while the adult size is great for pulling around yourself while watching a movie and knitting, or reading a good book.
