This was my first published design. The set includes a hat, a bag and a blanket. It was a fun knitโ€”love, love mosaic knitting.

Just a quick note about the blanket pattern in the book. The instructions for the corners of the blanket border can be a little confusing. So to clear things up a bitโ€ฆ

On each side of the blanket you will have two stitches before and after each corner stitch that should be knitted plain and you will have 5 triangles, with one stitch in between each.

Hereโ€™s how it works outโ€ฆ
On each side, knit the first 2 sts plain, join the 14 stitches of a triangle to the blanket, k1 stitch plain; repeat from the 4 times for a total of 5 triangles and 5 stitches from the blanket knitted plainโ€”75 sts + the 2 sts at the beg of the round = 77 sts for the first side so far. You will be ending this pattern with a k1. You should have one stitch left remaining before the corner stitch, knit that stitchโ€”78 sts. Knit the corner stitch. Repeat these steps for the remaining three sides.
There are 78 sts on each side of the blanket plus 4 corner stitches to give a total of 316 sts.
