HI there, just a quick note to say that I have just sold the last of this colourway of the patchwork blanket. As 3 of the colours have been discontinued I am starting work on a new version. If you would like an email letting you know when its available please send me an email on email@example.com and I'll notify you. It'll be based on the original with a few new colours (20/06/20).
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 stitch patterns, ‘all over’ and ‘grid’. The two have been used alternately to create what I believe is a ‘balanced’ look to the blanket.
The yarn is a superb quality 100% merino and is so lovely to work with, it's worth every penny.
