I made this sample with a lovely alpaca/acrylic blend--super soft with an incredible drape--and not too expensive, either--BONUS! This blanket is so easy to adjust size-wise, you could use almost any weight yarn you wanted.

It’s constructed with four panels that are then joined and bordered. Although it is written as baby size, it includes simple instructions to adjust it to any dimensions you want. The joining is super simple and speedy, too! I’m loving the options for color with this one. Imagine each panel worked in rainbow stripes--even stash busting ones--for a super bright and happy blanket. I can even see it done in neutrals for a very elegant, heirloom-looking blanket.

Skill Level: Easy

The pattern includes a special stitch section, stitch abbreviations, complete materials list, instructions for adjusting the size of your project, and several pictures to help you through--although they are not required to finish the blanket and you never need to print them if you don’t want to.
