PATTERN DETAILS

Modular knitting keeps a large project like this cozy throw completely portable. Until the final step, your work-in-progress is never larger than a single square. Alternate between mitered squares that come together with decreases and Lily counterpane squares that grow outward through increases. Both approaches to modular knitting make for equally organic knitting. Finish by pulling all the squares together using a flat three-needle bind-off for a project that's modular from start to finish.

Jill Wolcott Knits
I am a fashion designer who designs hand knits. I love hand knits because we create both the fabric and the shape. My designs reflect my intense interest in fashion, with a keen eye to design and technique. Jill Wolcott Knits® patterns are very complete--I strive to create a complete and clear guide to a completed project and leave little room for interpretation. When a pattern challenges you to conquer a new technique, the directions and support are there to give you a great result (I've given it lots of thought and coached many knitters to new skill heights). Your reward will be the skill that you take forward in your knitting. My love is knitting, not sewing, so I design so that as much as possible is done on the knitting needles with sewing only as absolutely necessary. This isn't necessarily a shortcut, but I think it works really well for those who don't love the finishing process. I have an extensive online techniques library to help you master techniques I use, and anything specific to a pattern is included.
