Your purchase is a donation to the Food Bank of Northern Indiana. 45 degrees is cold and is also the miter in a right angle. This easy blanket is knit as a reverse mitered square starting from a tiny square and growing 2 stitches every right side row. It is knit in shadow stitch (you could use garter). Finished size 49” x 51”. This is a simple guy appropriate design that shows off variegated yarn. I designed it as a gift for a male friend who is being treated for cancer. It’s easy to make as larger or small as you like by stopping when it is large enough. You will need long circulars to hold all the stitches.
