Chanctonbury by Linda (beelindi) Brown


This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

Chanctonbury is perfect for using up your sock scraps, or indeed any yarn scraps - the ultimate stash buster!

It is constructed using garter stitch mitred squares which are quick and easy to knit. An added bonus is that you won’t end up with a pile of squares at the end, waiting to be sewn together, as you join them as you go.

Chanctonbury is a timeless classic, which would look equally well over the back of the couch, ready to curl up under on a chilly evening, or even as a bedspread.

You can use any yarn in any weight, with its corresponding needles for this pattern. This will determine the tension of the squares, so none is given. Size isn’t mentioned either, as the blanket can be as large or small as you wish. It’s entirely up to you.

I’m not reinventing the wheel with this pattern; it’s my take on the ubiquitous sock scrap blanket.
