This pattern can easily be modified to make it larger or smaller as well as changing the border. The coin stitch pattern is a multiple of 4 stitches plus 1.

The finished size is 40” x 45” after washing and being loved for one year.

Important Note: In order for the coin stitch to “pop” you need to knit tighter than normal. If you’re having trouble try using a smaller needle size. Also block gently to avoid flattening the bubbles.

Please post pictures of your finished creations; I would love to see them!

Italian translation isn’t very good but perhaps some may find it useful. Google translate is not the best.
