I'd like to know the name of the pattern / stitch, I'm part of a forum for knit and crochet doers and I've no doubt they will ask what is it. Also if you could tell what multiple of sts it is it would be helpful. This blanket is simply gorgeous.

Hi there! I'm not sure the name of the stitch but it looks like a sort of variation on the basketweave! Unfortunately the original pattern doesn't seem to have information about number of stitches, but you can take a look here to see if it's helpful: Good luck!

It doesn't say the name, but no matter I have 8 balls of chunky acrylic that I plan on making a throw / shawl for this winter. I love how the pattern looks and will attempt doing it. Thank you for the reply.

This looks super cozy. I'm wondering how long it would take, though, because 15 skeins of yarn is a commitment... especially with my track record of finishing nothing.

This does look awesome. It would be nice to have something quick. The one I have been working on is very intricate. Curious how much time this took for a normal knitter?

This looks so warm and cozy! I was planning to make something like this for my grandma for Christmas, but I just might keep it for myself! HAHA

Love the chunky blankets! This one is such a beautiful color. It really shows off the stitches.
