Please Note: As of January 1, 2015 this pattern will no longer be available on Craftsy due to the new European Union taxation rules that are coming into effect regulating digital sales. Patterns will still be available through Ravelry.com (via LoveKnitting.com for EU customers). We sincerely apologize and regret that we will no longer be able to sell through this wonderful community.
A clever pattern with Wow-Factor results yet never requires knitting with more than one colour!
Pattern uses 1 solid colour yarn and 1 multi-colourd yarn; choose whether to knit the bottom and top borders in the solid or a multi-coloured yarn.
Sample used a little over 2 skeins each of Patons Astra in "Maize Yellow" (solid) and Patons Astra in "Happy Days" (multi) -- (approx. 350 yds / 320 m of each).
The blanket has a Garter stitch top and bottom border as well as Garter side edges; the multi-coloured yarn is carried right out to the side edges for a lovely striped effect. Yarn colour is changed every 2 rows but the yarn does NOT have to be cut; the "waiting" yarn can be carried up the side of the blanket so there are minimal ends to weave in.
21 sts and 28 rows over 4" / 10 cm in Stockinette stitch, blocked
700 yards of DK weight

NOTICE: With the impending change to the European Union (EU) VAT (value added tax) rules coming into effect on January 1, 2015, that require taxes to be collected according to the Buyer's location, I have no option but to close my Craftsy store. The burden of registering, collecting and tracking tax rates and buyer locations for 28 different EU countries is just not feasible. I sincerely apologize to my loyal Craftsy followers - I really am sorry that I have no other choice. My patterns will remain available on Ravelry.com which has arranged to re-route EU sales to the nice folks at LoveKnitting.com which is VAT registered. Thank you everyone for your wonderful support! I will miss you. ~ Luise
