Pattern Notes
Each square is knitted in the round from the border inward following one of two different charts. The squares are vigorously blocked, joined into strips using a three-needle bind-off and each strip joined to the next to create the blanket. A garter stitch border with mitred edges is then worked in four pieces around the blanket before finishing off with i-cord. When these four small seams are joined the blanket is complete.
