This pattern was originally written for all my friends at the
Womens Institute who are knitting a blanket for charity.
♥ Thought I’d share the love ♥
The knitting pattern is for two really easy Garter Stitch Blanket Squares.
There’s a choice of two blanket sizes:
3”/7.5cm x 3”/7.5cm or a 6”/15cm x 6”/15cm square.
Each square is knit diagonally to ensure a perfect square.
I designed the original blanket in a Gingham pattern formation,
but, have left the choice of yarn colour open
to the individual knitter as it would be
very difficult to co-ordinate the yarn colours with
so many knitters involved.
Each square takes a tiny quantity of D.K. yarn.
Approx 9 yards for the 3in/7.5cm square and
36 yards for the 6in/15cm square.
It’s a perfect pattern for those who would like to design their
own blanket and those new to knitting.
If you can increase, knit and decrease you can knit these squares!!
The pattern is also now available as a free download on the Knit for Peace website.
