This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

Each of these helicopter blocks is made up of three identical garter stitch shapes, each one worked in a different shade to give a three-dimensional effect. Stitches are picked up to knit the second and third shapes and then the cast off tails of yarn are used to sew the blocks together.

Finally, partial shapes are knitted to fill in the edges and then the whole thing is surrounded with a knitted on border. This pattern can be used to knit blankets, table runners or cushion covers and you could use different yarns too.

All my ravelry patterns are free to download but, if you enjoy them, please consider making a donation to the Children’s Liver Disease Foundation, a charity which funds research and supports the families of children with a liver disease. You can do this easily by going to my fundraising page www.justgiving.com/frankiesknittedstuff

Happy Knitting!
