Temperature Sampler Blocks is a yearlong KAL for 2022! The intro pdf has instructions for picking yarn, pattern details (gauge, size, yardage) and 2 charts to get you started planning your 2022 temperature blanket! Each month starting December 30th, 2021, you’ll receive a pattern for a knit block to work on the following month. Each block will feature a different stitch pattern!
