Diagonal blanket

KnittingPosted by Ann Helen Sat, March 28, 2009 23:39:01

A few weeks ago, I finished this lovely blanket in pure wool from

I am very pleased with it, being very light, warm, gorgeous colors in bluetoned green, lilac, lighter and darker blue with smooth transitions. The pattern is sooooo easy, starting with 2 stitches, increasing with 1 stitch the beginning of each row until it's wide enough, then decreasing the same way.

If you use 3 skeins you can use 1 skein for starting, 1 for the middle and the last one for the end, making a rectangular shape the easy way.
