Product Description

For this pattern I used:

Yarn & Amounts: Two 100g hanks of WYS Bluefaced Leicester DK in shade A.
One 100g hank each of WYS Bluefaced Leicester DK in Shades B and C.
WYS Bluefaced Leicester DK (100% British BlueFaced Leicester Wool, 225m/246yds per 100g)
I used shade Natural Ecru for shade A, shade Natural Light Brown for shade B and shade Natural Brown for shade C.

Metres/Yardage for shade A: approx. 440m/481yds.
Metres/Yardage each for shade B and C: approx. 220m/240yds.

My Yarn Suggestions & Amounts: Knoll Mohair Tweed  Four 50g balls of shade A, two 50g balls each of shade B and shade C.
OR if you wanted a grey version try WYS Illustrious DK Two 100g hanks of shade A, one 100g hank of shade B and shade C.

Needles: 4mm.

Tension: 22 stitches and 42 rows to 10cm square over pattern using 4mm needles.

Skill level: ♦ ♦  ◊ ◊

Measurements: each square is 15cm x 15cm.  
This makes 30 squares in total, 15 squares with shades A and B and 15 squares with shades A and C.

My design ideas and advice: One of the great things about this square blanket is that the squares are knitted individually so you can get a sense of satisfaction when you complete one. I like to stack the squares in piles, which look lovely and help you keep an eye on the progress you’re making! Knitting the squares is a great way to relax because you can just do one or two rows in between other things or if you have a couple of minutes. This blanket pattern is available as a download, a single patter or in my Knitted With Love book
