Nathan Lewis Danish
Needle and yarn
Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Multi
21.8 yards, 5 grams 0.05 skeins = 21.8 yards (19.9m)
Shibui Knits Sock
Shibui Knits Staccato
76.4 yards, 20 grams 0.4 skeins = 76.4 yards (69.9m)

I created the square designs in Excel, using a variety of pictures, text art, etc., as sources. (See my Pratchgan square for a better description of intarsia charting in Excel.)

The squares are 40x48 (plus 2 buffer rows/stitches on each side), in sock yarn, on size 3 needles. Most of the yarn is ShiBui sock, with an assist from Lorna’s Laces Zombie BBQ.

I didn’t post the binary name (center) square, on the theory that no one would be interested in knitting a square with my nephew’s name on it.

All the sewing required to attach the knitted bits to blanket back and binding were done by my mom, because I can’t sew to save my life.
