This blanket is knit one ball at a time, with the borders made as you go. The design uses fun texture patterns that combine knit and purl stitches (the patterns are not especially technical) and is a great design for a knitter who enjoys creative textures. As a knit it is very pleasing to work the colours and a variety of designs as it keeps the journey interesting with each change. No sewing required (just your ends).
This pattern is suitable for advancing beginners / intermediate knitters that enjoy creative textures using knit and purl; those comfortable following a pattern, cast on and off
