UPDATE Wedding Blanket is official a FO!! Update in post 24
 


The start of something big! (or at least, long! LOL!)


and a close up on the stitch pattern.

This is taken from the Knitted Lace of Estonia book, the Crown Prince shawl, which I have made blanket sized by increasing repeats, using heaver weight yarn (DK weight) and larger needles (size 6).

Lovely! That is so beautiful. I like the color.

What a spectacular blanket! This is a treasure fit for a crown prince. I'm looking forward to updates as you progress.

The pattern is lovely and it is going to be so gorgeous when you finish it.

Will it be an all-over pattern or more of a border?

That is a wonderfully beautiful wedding blanket!

The bride requested a neutral color so that as her styles and tastes change, it will always "go."

The crown prince shawl has this diamond pattern as its center square. It also has a wide-ish boarder on all sides, and a beautiful lacy trim around the whole outer edge. Depending on how much yarn I wind up using (purchased nearly 3000 yds!) I may go for one or both of the boarders. If I got my gauge correct, I am making a center square of 60"x60". A queen-sized comforter/quilt is 90"x90", so, we'll see how far I get toward that. I'll let you know. :shrug:

Loverly! Loverly!

I especially appreciate the wonderful symbiosis between the pattern stitch and the yarn! Looking quite beautiful!

Wow! Thank you! That's quite a compliment, coming from the queen of symbiosis herself! :notworthy:
