Notes

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.
