100 Mayan Hot Cocoa Blanket

About 2,000 years ago, the ancient Mayans created what is believed to be the first chocolate beverage. It was a frothy, foamy, sugarless drink with a surprise ingredient: chili pepper. This “xocolatl” was originally served cold, but by the 16th century a hot version had come into being. In the centuries since, it has become the hot cocoa we know and love today. Dark on one side and light on the other, this double-knit blanket features the Mayan glyph for cocoa combined with the symbol for fire. It’s a calorie-free way for you to enjoy some warming hot cocoa time and again. A matching tea cozy pattern, Mayan Hot Cocoa Tea Cozy, is available separately.

Gauge: 16 st pairs = 4” / 10 cm. When measuring, it will look like 4 St sts to the inch on each side.

Construction: The piece is double-knit, worked flat from the bottom up. The pattern is provided in charted form only.
