I'm really pleased to have a blanket kit made using British wool from a British mill and spinner. I'm working on a purple version too, please email me if you are interested is seeing this before anyone else - email@example.com
This blanket is made with West Yorkshire Spinners ColourLab double knit. It is100% reared sheared and spun in Yorkshire. The technique for making the blanket is known as modular knitting, every square is knitted onto an adjoining square so you have NO sewing together!!
The finished size is approximately 128 cm x 114 cm. When I made the sample we squeezed out extra tier of squares but there was only just enough so this measurement is the minimum size!
Skill level: Intermediate or confident beginner
Knit One Kits top tip: not too sure about picking up stitches make a few squares in scrap yarn and practice first.
Kit contents: 10 x 100g (approximately 225m/245yds) balls WYS ColourLab double knit, printed colour instructions.
You will need: 4mm or 4.5mm knitting needles (shorter needles will be easier to work with) depending on your tension, darning needle and scissors
