The blan­ket is con­structed with 4 strips in stripes of 36 rows (to create squares of colour). The Cream squares are al­ways worked from the chart, as in­structed in the pat­tern. When work­ing from the chart, use small amounts of yarn for each area of colour, twist­ing yarns on wrong side of work to avoid a hole. The yarn has 3 strands and for some ar­eas of colour in chart you will need to split the Light Green and Cream yarns and re-twist to­gether (see ab­bre­vi­a­tions). Yarn amounts are based on av­er­age re­quire­ments and are there­fore ap­prox­i­mate. In­struc­tions in square brack­ets are worked as stated af­ter 2nd bracket.
