Now, this is a blanket that has been a long time in the making. According to my notes on ravelry, I started the chevron section of this baby in September 2010. So, start to finish that’s around 13 months. Obviously I wasn’t working on this project for 13 months straight, but it feels really good to have it finished and put into use. It’s seriously cosy, and the wild colour combinations make me happy.
Pattern – chevron: Afghan Stitch, from The Essential Guide to Colour Knitting Techniques by Margaret Radcliffe.
Pattern – squares: Mitered Crosses by Kay Gardiner.
Yarn: Stash acrylic.
Needles: 5mm/ US Size 8
Notes: I joined the mitred squares together using 3-needle bind-off, and crocheted them together with the chevron strip using slip-stitch.
