CECILY YARN KITS USING OUR BEAUTIFUL HAND-DYED BYRE FINGERING WEIGHT, 100% BRITISH WOOL ARE NOW AVAILABLE TO ORDER. Please note, this kit does not include the Cecily pattern. The pattern is only available by purchasing my new book, Echoes, which you can do by clicking on the link above.

The large and comforting Cecily blanket comprises garter-stitch squares worked together in strips. Once all seven strips have been knitted they are then joined together. The simple shape and stitch pattern provide a canvas for the stunning colour combinations, making them the focal point of this design. A co-ordinating i-cord edging is added for the final finishing touch. The pattern was inspired by an old magazine published by Rowan Yarns that featured a fascinating fictional character called Cecily. One image in particular has remained in Susan's mind: Cecily sits, knitting in hand, with her legs covered by a tartan blanket.

This beautiful heirloom blanket has finished dimensions of 200x120cm (79x47in) large enough to grace a king size bed or large sofa.

Cecily is knitted using Susan Crawford Byre, a fingering weight yarn that is delightfully lofty and soft, created from a blend of Jacobs and Shetland fibres spun exclusively for us in a nearby Yorkshire mill.
