These three square patterns each have a different stitch pattern designed to provide texture and colour relief.

The intention of these squares is that they be knit in the colours of the Australian landscape; greens, blues, oranges, yellows, browns - think grasses, trees, flora, earth, sky, water, wildflowers.

Once joined together, the blanket then captures the essence, colour and warmth of the landscape in a most beautiful way.

Construction:
Knit flat and at a loose tension, these squares employ simple lace techniques for a quick knit.

Skill Level:
Intermediate

Errata:
Square 2 Row 6 should read

Row 6: (RS) k2, k2tog x 2, k1, k1tbl into double yo, k2tog x2; repeat from to last 2 sts, k2. (22 sts)

Note the added x2 at the end of the repeated instructions.


This pattern was initially released as part of WARM: a large-scale collaborative knitting project that explores why the earth is warming and what we can do to make a positive change.

Knitters of all skill levels from around Victoria, Australia contributed to a large-scale piece that was exhibited at the Art Gallery of Ballarat in September 2016 and the National Wool Museum October - November 2016.

Patterns are available individually, as part of an e-book or as part of a beautifully printed booklet available from SEAM.
