Digital Knitting Pattern - Patchwork Blanket
The Patchwork Blanket was developed as part of the FW16 collection as a way to use up cone ends of yarn while simultaneously training new knitters who had been drawn to the work we were doing in Peru. The mitered garter square is easy to learn, fun to knit, travels well, and is truly satisfying.

This pattern works with any yarn in any gauge but will yield a different size square in different yarns. We used a worsted weight merino yarn to achieve the scale of the squares in the images.
This pattern is great for using up odds and ends in your stash. Use six colors to achieve the look of our sample or more for a patchwork look. You will need approximately two skeins (100g each) per color depending on your preferred color layout.
The only skills to master: garter stitch, decreasing, and sewing it all together. You will also get lots of practice weaving in ends.

I wanted to "Thank you" for starting this knitting project and welcoming us to your creative world. I happened to get the pattern for the blanket at the time that I needed a satisfying distraction in my life. It has been so inspiring and stimulating to learn and work on this project and its simplicity, yet complexity surprises me. I am already thinking of all possibilities with different color pallets for future projects. This has been such a lovely gift at a difficult time for me that connects me back to my grandmother and mother who were knitters and always had simple, clever, and complex projects on hand.
