The blanket uses the corner to corner stitch in two different colours to create a geometric pattern. Using two high contrast colours will make the pattern stand out more. However, similar colours will produce a more subtle look.

The pattern assumes a basic knowledge of the corner to corner technique. A graph alone can be used to make the blanket. One square of the graph represents one C2C stitch. The blanket is worked from the bottom right corner of the graph.

Three graph sizes are provided and three sets of written instructions. The graph can be adapted to any size smaller then the large. This means removing some rows from the large graph. However the graph alone will have to be used as the written instructions are specific to the sizes given.

Three sizes are blanket are provided in the pattern.

  • Small - 80cm by 100cm
  • Medium - 97cm by 130cm
  • Large - 120cm by 150cm
