Closed Canada Day (& Free Pattern)

We will be closed on Wednesday July 1st for Canada Day, but here’s a little patriotic inspiration, Canadian style …..

Canada Day Hudson bay Blanket

Hudson’s Bay Blanket

I love this blanket, the aesthetic is timeless, historic, and the knitting easy enough for beginners. The original pattern is designed as a crib blanket (34″ wide x 39″ long), but it makes a really lovely lap blanket, so we’ll give you a few yarn options and instructions to make it larger.
