KNITTED PATCHWORK BLANKET PATTERN
This patchwork blanket pattern is a great stash buster! Use up left over yarn to create knitted patchwork blanket using this easy pattern.
The knitted patchwork blanket is a great project to pick up and put down over a period of time. To make it easier the different coloured squares are knitted in strips so rather than lots of squares to sew up.
HOW THE PATTERN WORKS
You knit 8 strips each with 11 ‘squares’. These 8 strips are then sewn together along the long edges – much less sewing and ends to sew in! The border is created by picking up stitches along the outer edge (with a circular needle).
There are 8 different stitches all with row by row instructions. and the pattern comes with a full colour diagram

YARN REQUIRED FOR THE BLANKET
You will need around 1550g of Aran weight yarn or 31 x 50g balls or 3100 metres. This is approximate but should give you a guide.
You need 7 different colours, 200g (400m) of of them, 150g (300m) of 3 of them and 500g (1000m) of 1 of them (this is also the border colour).
If you are using thinner or thicker yarn then you will need to adjust your yarn amount accordingly.
- Approximately 140cm x 132cm (using aran weight yarn)
