Sock yarn blanket
Pattern:-Knitted Patchwork Recipe by Martine Ellis. This blanket is knit in one piece. The little miter squares measure about 2 1/4 inches (unblocked) and you pick up 16 stitches, or cast on 16 stitches along the edges and just knit. There are 11 miters across the bottom and 15 miters on the side!!
Needles:- Sz #2 double points for the little squares and Sz #2 40" circulars for the ruffle! (I used 3 because I had a lotta stitches!)
Yarn:- Mini Mochi. It is sock yarn and the colours are lovely! I'm not sure how it will wash and wear. The reviews http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/crystal-palace-yarns-mini-mochi are not so favorable!!! I used 10 skeins and 3 were for the ruffle!
It was an easy knit and someday I'll use all my sock yarn scraps and knit myself one...maybe!
Happy knitting, everyone!
