Here’s a blanket that you’ll want to wrap yourself up in. Play with colors and make your own quilt with customizable square arrangements.
Design by Heather Zoppetti
141/2 sts and 29 rows = 4 inches/10cm in garter st. To save time, take time to check gauge.
Stripe Pat 20 ridges A 15 ridges B 22 ridges A 15 ridges B 20 ridges A Note: 1 ridge = 2 knit rows (RS/WS).
Blanket is worked as separate, striped, garter stitch squares that are crocheted together. The squares are worked diagonally, starting at 1 corner and ending at the other. The size is determined by the number of squares worked. Baby blanket requires a total of 4 squares, throw requires 6 and twin bedspread requires 8. The final design of the blanket is determined by how the squares are positioned. Play with the arrangement of the final squares to make your own design. Some options are provided here, but the possibilities are virtually endless.
Note: Work each square following the Stripe Pat.
