This is the same stitch pattern as my All the Colors Striped Blanket, but worked on the diagonal. Start with a chain 2 and off you go! The pattern beautifully complements the subtle ombres and shadings of Scheepjes Fine Art, but can be also used with a self-striping yarn, an ombre yarn, stripes, or solids. The textured pattern is reversible and looks good in any yarn. The pattern is easily memorized for a relaxing, meditative experience.

I used 3 skeins of Fine Art for the blanket and part of a skein for the border. As an alternate, you could use the coordinating Scheepjes Merino Soft for a solid colored border. (Started with Classicism - dark end, then Fauvism - light end first, then Cubism dark end. Used less than half skein Rococo for border but plan to finish up skein.)
