This is a very large and time-consuming project which requires a fair bit of concentration to make sure the charts are followed correctly; but the result is a gorgeous and sizeable baby blanket, twice as thick and warm as most other knitted blankets. It incorporates ‘step’ and ‘key’ motifs inspired by traditional designs from medieval Celtic illuminated manuscripts, and is completely reversible.

Requires double knitting techniques (explained in pattern), chart reading and grafting.

Errata

I will eventually be correcting these in the PDF.

There is an error in Chart C. Stitches 7-12 in Row 37 should actually be black, not white. Chart A, which is the mirror image of Chart C, shows this section as it should correctly appear, in stitches 32-36 of Row 37.

There is an error in Chart A. The horizontal line of black squares in Row 30 from stitches 7-13 should actually be on Row 31. Chart C, which is the mirror image of Chart A, shows the line as it should correctly appear.

There are two small errors in the pattern:

Row 3 should read:
K1 with colour A, P1 with colour B, *K1 with colour B, P1 with colour A, repeat from * until only two stitches are left on the left needle, K1 with colour A, P1 with colour B.

Row 237 should read:
K1 with colour A, P1 with colour B, *K1 with colour B, P1 with colour A, repeat from * until only two stitches are left on the left needle, K1 with colour A, P1 with colour B.

2009-09-13: New version of PDF uploaded; almost all changes are cosmetic, but one correction was made to the chart schematic - two of the sections said to use Chart H when one of them should actually have said to use chart I.
