Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, lace, follow a lace chart, knitting in the round, pinhole cast on,

Pattern Description:

Most of my life I have been ambivalent about babies. I was quite surprised that turning 30 and meeting a handsome man who wants kids has changed my outlook... Now I'm having vivid daydreams about a future that includes little ones, and these fantasies have begun to materialize in knitting!

Vivid is lace patchwork that can be knit in any weight of yarn. I made a baby blanket size in a range of bright primaries.

sizing: The pattern can be knit in any weight of yarn, and you may make more or less squares for a smaller or larger finished blanket.
Squares will measure approximately 7.5 (9, 10.5) inches square for sock (DK, aran) weight yarns.
The baby-blanket sized sample is made in sock weight yarn and is 30 x 37.5 inches (20 squares).

materials: Yarn amounts given are for 1 square
sock or 4-ply: 70 yds per square
DK weight: 100 yds per square
worsted / aran: 130 yds per square
(baby blanket shown in Jamieson & Smith Jumper Weight, 20 squares, weighs 225 g, in colours: 23, 91, 121, 125, 93, 1403, 9113, 1280, 75, FC34, 132, FC41, 142)

gauge: I recommend that you knit a square using suggested needles, block it and see if you like the finished size and density.

suggested needles:
sock or 4-ply: US # 5 / 3.75 mm
DK weight: US # 7 / 4.5 mm
worsted / aran: US # 9 / 5.5 mm

notions: stitch markers, darning needle

Pattern includes both a chart and text instructions for working the lace motif. Squares are knit separately from the centre outwards, and then sewn together.
