This blanket is worked using the intarsia method with two colors and two textures. When working intarsia, bring the new yarn under the old yarn at each color change to twist yarns and avoid holes. The blanket shown uses almost all of four skeins of each color. Consider purchasing an extra skein of each color as insurance. A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitches.
