This was custom-knit as a donation for a charity auction at my church. The winner of the auction picked the pattern and yarn. The final size was about 4' x 5' (after washing, it flattened nicely and stretched a bit). The yarn is Vanna oatmeal heather; the recipient is allergic to wool. Here are overview and close up pictures. I haven't given it to her yet, but sent her an in-progress picture. I hope she loves it! There are - count 'em - 900 cables!!
