This pattern is available from for $5.00.

This is a knit a long I’ve been running at my shop since Feb 2008. Each month through January 2009 a new block is released. The program is $5 a month.
Blocks are now available as PDF on our website & hopefully on Ravelry as soon as I figure how to do each block individually. The complete blanket will be released in Feb 2009 as one pattern.

Each block takes between 125-160 yards (cabled blocks take the most) of Aran weight yarn. You may need an extra ball of yarn for joining blocks/edging.

The blocks are arranged in order of difficulty moving from basic knit/purl blocks to complex lace and cabled designs. My customers are absolutely loving this project & many new knitters are telling me how this is helping them learn stitches and techniques.

Blocks will be joined with a 3-needle bind-off and edged in attached i-cord. Instructions for joining & edging are included with blocks 11 & 12.
