Plain sofa need a makeover? Brighten things up with this geo­met­ric blan­ket in a en­vi­able se­lec­tion of muted tones

Blan­ket squares (make 3 pieces in each colour­way as per ta­ble).

Us­ing yarn A, 6mm nee­dles and the thumb method, cast on 3 sts and knit one row.

Note: the kfb in­creases be­low ap­pear to be off cen­tre by one stitch, but the in­struc­tion is cor­rect – do­ing it this way will place the in­creased stitches ei­ther side of a cen­tral spine.

You may find it help­ful to at­tach a re­mov­able stitch marker or piece of yarn to the right sides of the work to re­mind you which side to in­crease on as the right sides and wrong sides will only look slightly dif­fer­ent from each other and it can be easy to lose track.
