Elizabeth Zimmermann’s elaboration on the Mystery Blanket

From the beginning it had occurred to me that if the squares were started at the center and not cast off, their sides could be woven together to produce the mysterious effect of the blanket having been knitted in all directions at once. I bedded down this brainwave in my subconscious, and have allowed my life to simmer along until now. Now squares have gripped me, and perhaps they will grip you too.

From the back of the book:

The year begins with an Aran sweater and proceeds to February baby things, a March Shetland, April blanket, May mittens and so on through the months, completing the zodiac with November moccasin socks and a December last-minute wishbone sweater.
