Pat­tern Notes

Blan­ket and pil­low are both worked flat.

Blan­ket uses 2 col­or­work meth­ods: slipped stitches for the 2-Color Lat­tice pat­tern and in­tar­sia (see page 80) for the bor­ders worked in main color.

When chang­ing col­ors, pick up new yarn un­der old to pre­vent holes.

Carry yarn not in use loosely up in­side of garter bor­der.

Long cir­cu­lar nee­dles are rec­om­mended for the large num­ber of stitches in the blan­ket; do not join, work back and forth in rows.

Slip all stitches in Lat­tice pat­terns purl­wise with yarn on wrong side of work.

Pil­low

With MC, cast on 46 sts.

Work in 1-Color Lat­tice pat for 12 inches, then work in garter st for 12 inches.

Bind off all sts loosely. Fin­ish­ing Weave in ends.

Sew up 1 short end of pil­low sleeve, then sew long edges tog. Insert pil­low form. Sew fi­nal short end closed. Weave in ends.

Blan­ket

With MC, cast on 102 sts.

Slip­ping first st of each row pwise wyif, knit 9 rows. Next row (WS): Sl 1, k9, pm, knit to last 10 sts, pm, k10. 2-Color Cen­ter Setup row (RS): With MC, sl 1, k9, sm, then join CC and work Row 1 of 2-Color Lat­tice pat to next marker, join a new ball of MC, knit to end.

Con­tinue in this man­ner, slip­ping first st of each row pwise wyif, work­ing MC bor­ders in garter st and work­ing cen­ter sts in 2-Color Lat­tice pat. Note: Use first ball of MC for right bor­der and Lat­tice pat; con­tinue to use 2nd ball of MC for left bor­der.

Work un­til blan­ket mea­sures ap­prox 32 (44, 56) inches from cast-on edge, end­ing with ei­ther Row 3 or Row 7 of 2-Color Lat­tice pat. Cut CC and ex­tra ball of MC. Us­ing MC and slip­ping first st of each row pwise wyif, knit 10 rows.
