Pretty cunning, dontcha think?
To make the cushion pattern a blanket, I used bulky yarn (Loops and Threads “Charisma”)
and #11 US (8.0 mm) needles. Blanket measured roughly 4o x 34 inches (101 x 86 cm)
Yarn: Vanna’s Choice Medium
Needle: #8 US (5.0 mm)
Hat modification: Cast on 54 stitches for approx. 13 inch (not stretched) circumference
Ear flaps: Cast on 13 stitches for ear flaps knit to 1.5 inch length then decreased
