The inspiration for this blanket was a lovely stained glass window that set two similar colors against each other in a nested frame pattern. The symmetry and simplicity appealed to my inner knitter and outer mom. How refreshing to have a blanket that is not based on a stitch pattern, but rather a strong graphical idea! While the instructions may seem long and complicated, the blanket is actually quite simple once you get going. You may want to refer to the schematic on page three before starting to see how the knit and purl sections are laid out. Each frame is 15 stitches wide and 30 rows deep; even rows could be written with the enigmatic "knit the knit stitches and purl the purls" between the seed stitch border. There is no "right side" to this blanket: the photos and schematic show even rows "up". BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit & purl patterning GAUGE 16 stitches and 25 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Blanket is approximately 22in wide by 31in long (55cm by 77.5cm).

I like to design baby blankets, accessories for children, adults, and the home, and garments for children and adults. You can find my patterns through my indie line here on Craftsy or in a variety of print and online magazines and books. I happily work with local yarn stores, crafters, and indie dyers: please contact me to start a conversation about how we can support each other!
