This is a great project to pick up and put down over a period of time. To make it easier the squares are knitted in strips so rather than lots of squares to sew up you knit 8 strips each with 11 ‘squares’. These 8 strips can then be sewn together – much less sewing and ends to sew in!
You can mix the order around and change the stitch designs that you use. There are two types of designs, ‘all over’ and ‘grid’. The two have been used alternately to create a ‘balanced’ look to the blanket.
