Pattern Description:

My cheery and bright Bonanza Blanket, worked in one piece with an optional crochet edging.

Super simple, if you can do the knit stitch you can do this! Just cast on and knit (and knit and knit...!) All the interest in this design is in the colour changes and the layout of the stripes.

The pattern includes both a chart and written instructions for the stripe sequence, so you can choose which to follow.

Instructions are aimed at beginners, with hints and tips - but if you just want to use the stripe sequence it's written out on the last page.
