POP!! blanket - by Emily Wessel
This blanket is inspired by the bright, exciting and high-contrast graphics of comic books and American Pop Art, and my love of polka dots in general. MMMmmmm who doesn’t love a good polka dot?
I simply adore knitting with Noro: the joy and satisfaction of seeing what colour will come next never fails to please me. This blanket has been kicking around in my box of design ideas for a good long time, but it suddenly KNOCKED on the inside of my head and DEMANDED to POP out into the world. So here it is. I hope you love it as much as I do!

Blanket can be made any size desired. When made to the gauge suggested, the squares measure approximately 6.25” square. The sample is baby blanket size, it measures 26” x 32.5”. Of course you can knit this pattern in any yarn and gauge that you like, but note that this will change the yardage requirements. POP is a fabulous project for using up colourful scraps of leftover yarn.
