For me, knitting and crocheting evolved from a hobby to an all-consuming passion (some would say obsession). Inspiration for my designs is drawn from all over the place, including past travels -- from Turkey to Kyrgyzstan and many places in between. I dream about wool during the long Canadian winters, often waking from my sleep with visions of knittin’s dancing in my head.
Things I never leave home without: Chris, my handsome traveling companion, a knitting project, trusty e-reader, and a picture of my slightly obese cat, Ivan.
A knit throw that highlights classic lines and minimalist design to complement modern urban dcor. Subtle texture stitches accent each of the four panels, over which brightly coloured lines are then crocheted or stitched. The ribbed border unites the panels and
finishes the piece with quiet sophistication.
Use a 6mm circular needle (29 in / 74 cm) to accommodate length when adding ribbed trim. Depending whether you intend to crochet or stitch your colourful lines, you will either need a 4 mm crochet hook or a needle for stitching. This pattern is good for beginners and for mindless knitting as the pattern repeat is fairly simple and the blanket knits up in pieces.
Note: The pattern includes both a chart and written instructions.
