This blanket is made with Sirdars Jewel spun aran and as it is multi coloured you can keep knitting from the same ball of wool.
The technique known as modular or domino knitting, meaning that 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 of it! The instructions clearly show how to do this.
The finished size is approximately 100 cm x 138 cm.
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.
