Winter Dance blanket knitting pattern is available on Ravelry, LoveKnitting and Etsy.
I love the chunky texture of this blanket! It's big, thick and cozy....perfect for cold winter nights.

I used their popular Wool-Ease Thick & Quick super bulky yarn in the color 'Denim'.
Lion Brand is offering a kit to make the Winter Dance afghan! The kit includes enough yarn to make an extra-large afghan (46" x 57") using the lovely 'Denim' blue colorway.
I have used Wool-Ease Thick & Quick for many projects and I am always very pleased with the results. This was the first time I used the 'Denim' shade of blue and I absolutely love it! I will definitely use this lovely blue yarn in future projects.

My favorite choice for this blanket is Lion Brand's Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in a solid color. This yarn is 20% wool and 80% acrylic...so it has a lovely soft, woolly texture. This yarn is available in lots of colors!
This blanket would also look wonderful knit with Lion Brand Hometown USA. Hometown USA is a good choice if you prefer a yarn without wool. It's available in lots of colors! Check out 'Washington Denim' if you like a color similar to the one I used. My other favorite shades in Hometown USA are 'Dallas Grey' and 'Houston Cream'.
The texture of the pattern will show up best with solid color yarns.
Be sure to purchase additional yarn if you plan to add length to your blanket. The pattern includes estimates on how much additional yarn is required to add pattern repeats.

Knitters often ask if my blanket patterns are reversible...this one is not reversible. This blanket definitely looks prettier on the "right side".
