vivid - by Emily Wessel
Note: this pattern includes both line-by-line text instructions and a lace chart.
sizing: The pattern can be knit in any weight of yarn, and you may make more or less squares for a smaller or larger finished blanket.
Squares will measure approximately 7.5 (9, 10.5) inches square for sock (DK, aran) weight yarns.
The baby-blanket sized sample is made in sock weight yarn and is 30 x 37.5 inches (20 squares).
materials: Yarn amounts given are for 1 square
sock or 4-ply: 70 yds per square
