Yes, it's yet another blanket. ;)
I have a pile of Corntastic yarn leftover from the first baby blanket and since 2 of my friends are having babies in August, I decided it was about time I whipped something together for the 2nd baby.
Plus I've been dying to have a go at the mitered square blanket since I first saw one. They are soo pretty. This blanket won't be all pastels. They just happen to be the colours I started with.
General directions are:
- Cast on 40 (placing a stitch marker between the first 20 and last 20 stitches - this is where you'll make the decreases).
- Row 1: Knit all stitches
- Row 2: Knit to 2 stitches before the marker, K2tog, slip marker, SSK, knit to end
- Change colors after every row 2
- Repeat rows 1 and 2 until the last 2 stitches - K2tog and draw yarn though final loop. Weave in ends.
I'm excited to see how this will turn out. (Although I'm not excited about the prospect of sewing up all the squares.)
