This is the third blanket I am making in this pattern. It is a really simple pattern with some mindless knitting. Well not too mindless I made a couple mistakes on the way. You can check out the other two blankets I made in completely different color combinations- Midnight hues , in blues, and Verdant stripes, in greens and pink.
The idea behind this pattern is this really easy garter stitch blanket. I used a modification of this pattern which was made beautifully here.
Caron simply soft acrylic yarn in the colors of
Dark sage, Sage, Sunshine, Pumpkin and Autumn Red.
Finished dimensions: 24X31”
Changes to the pattern:
6 rows of garter stitch
K4 (K10 P10) till last 4 sts K4
(All wrong side rows are purl)
K4 P1 (K10 P10) till last 4 sts K4
Keep increasing by one Purl at the beginning of right side rows till there are 10 and then add knits till 10 and so on.
Last six rows garter st.
I did a four sts edging. I have done a separate crochet edging before and that looks awesome too. You can modify (Like I did from the pattern) to increase or decrease the size of the diagonal stripes by changing the number of sts in the repeat.
This blanket is now available on etsy. I am off to work on the same pattern blanket #4 for a beautiful custom order.
What have you guys been up to! Also is spring here yet?
