The Watermelon Patch blanket is comprised of individual squares. Each square is knitted in the round on circular needles, with miters at four corners decreasing to the center. Since each square is sewn together, there’s a bit of seaming, but this gives you a chance to choose the placement of your squares according to color. The blanket is edged with reverse single crochet (aka crab stitch), but for those of you who don’t crochet, an alternate knitted edging is included in the Designer Tips.

I initially called this blanket the Serendipity Blanket. When worked in a yarn with long color repeats, such as Universal Yarn Cotton Supreme Batik, each square is unique. As you can see in the photo, no two squares are quite alike. Of course, you can absolutely knit this blanket with solid yarns and get great results. But, sometimes it’s nice to let the yarn do all the heavy lifting. Try one each way and see what you like best.
