Noro Kureyon - literally “Crayon” in Japanese - is just bursting with color. I can’t help but collect the little 50g skeins whenever I run into one I love, or simply when I’m having a bad day.

This blanket has been in progress for the larger part of 3 years, but I keep coming back to it for the sheer joy of seeing the colors combine in two row stripes; like a brand new box of crayons.

Knit in strips and joined at the end, it’s an extremely simple and portable project that’s easy to pick up at any time.

Each panel uses 2 contrasting colorways. Have fun when picking - it’s impossible to ‘clash’ as long as you keep enough contrast.

You should have enough yarn for each panel, but occasionally Kureyon runs short. The extra 2 skeins are to use as needed to make up a few rows. Switch to a compatible color if possible.
