I'm really pleased to have a blanket kit for you made using British wool from a British mill and spinner.
The Orange & yellow version - uses Natural Cream, Hazel Brown, Zesty Orange, Pear Green, Citrus Yellow
The Pink version - uses True Blue, Very Berry, Crimson Red, Thistle Purple, Cerise Pink
This blanket is made with West Yorkshire Spinners ColourLab double knit. It is 100% reared sheared and spun in Yorkshire. This technique is known as modular or domino knitting, every square is knitted onto an adjoining square so you have NO sewing together!! By picking up stitches from the neighbouring squares you never have to sew any of them together! You’ll be an expert at picking up by the end! The instructions clearly show how to do this.
The finished size is approximately 128 cm x 114 cm. When I made the sample we squeezed out an 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 (2 of each colour) 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
