It couldn´t be delayed any longer, I had to put blankets on the beds and get out the lap rugs. I dislike the cold and while my friends here still sport short sleeves, I´m wrapped in a sweater and could easily start putting the heating on in the evenings.In the wardrobe I found this cosy little blanket that I knitted a few years back.
At the time I wanted to use up my oddments of wool and decided to make a green blanket for myself and a blue one for my mum in law.
I used different stitches for each square and had to juggle a bit with the number of stitches used so to get the pattern and measurements correct.
I made a note of some of the stitches I used, diagonal weave, knotted rib, cable, granite relief, drewdrop, double moss, diamond, puff rib, drop stitch, two colour star, horseshoe, eyelet, seeded rib, andaluz, continuous braid, tile, nosegay, gulls wings, rows of jewels, bamboo and winding trail.
After joining all the squares, I crocheted a small edging.
Perfect for the cooler evenings. Thank you for visiting,
