I finished the big blanket and it is AWESOME! I used lots of Noro and Colinette yarns, in black, purple, rose and blue. I had 10 skeins of Silk Mountain in black, and the rest are one or two or partial left over skeins from my stash... The pattern is easy. Here goes: Use extra long circular 6.o mm (US 10) needles (Addi are my favourites). Cast on 160 stitches, break yarn, leaving a 12 inch tail of yarn . Using a different yarn, start with a 12 inch tail, knit across the row, then break yarn with a 12 inch tail. Keep adding different yarns, sometimes use the same yarn 2 - 3 times in a row, but always start with a 12 inch strand dangling and finish withbreaking the yarn and leaving a strand. As you go along tie the new tail and last rows' tail in an overhand knot to secure. (this creates a fringe of all the different yarns. Mix the colours as you feel, and sometimes knit, sometimes purl.... totally random! Work until about 4.5 feet wide (should be about 6 feet long) or until any size you like!
