I have made this blanket in two colors by knitting one complete pattern in the main color and the second pattern in contrasting color.

I have also made it with say, two repeats of complete pattern and then a band of a different color, one pattern of main color and then a second band of contrasting color. After I decided how long I wanted it, I then did the same at the other end of the blanket. I have also started the blanket by k1, p1, for row 1 of the border. Row 2 k. When you start the main part of the blanket; k1, p1, k1 for 7 sts and on the next row; k these 7 sts. There are lots of variations. (The sky’s the limit!)

Notes: The pattern is pretty vague. Use any DK or worsted weight yarn, cast on X, knit in pattern until Y, bind off. Gauge: not critical. Yardage: not listed. Weight of yarn: anything you want within reason.

The directions do say you will need 250 grams of DK weight yarn to make a blanket approx. 26” wide by 32” long, using a size 6 US needle. I’m going to try it out.
