10th May ‘18: I have now added a second page to download - the symbols key written in US terms.
The first file has UK terms and the chart, the second is just the US terms - so make sure you download BOTH if you need US terms.

I wanted to make a stripey, mixed stitch blanket, which had lots and lots of texture and colour but more importantly, would be completely reversible.
I’ve designed my blanket so it has bobbles, popcorns and post stitches which are worked on both sides in such a way that there really isn’t a wrong side.

I used James Brett Supreme DK in the ten colours I could get hold of, plus one variegated. (The variegated could be replaced with a plain colour if your prefer.)

The colours I’m using are -

Pink (number 11)
Orange (19)
Yellow (20)
Green (7)
Blue (5)
Turquoise (21)
Pale Pink (18)
Lemon (2)
Mint (1)
Lilac(3)

Stonewashed - colour SW2

There are more colours than these in the range, these were simply the ones I could find on sale at the time.

My finished blanklet weighed 303 grams, although this was not equally split between the colours - you will need to make sure you have 35g per colour to be in the safe side.

I have since made the blanket again in Stylecraft Special DK in rainbow colours which looked very effective. (You can find the list of colour names on my Springtime Baby Blanket project page.)

Whilst the pattern was designed as a baby size, it can very easily be scaled up to adult size - indeed I am about to begin a 50” square version!
You can also vary your colours to give a completely different effect.

  • PLEASE NOTE

You will need to download the chart here first, then go to my blog to look for all the pattern notes that you’ll need regarding materials, tension, number of stitches, blocking, straightening the edges, adding a border etc.

I’ve tried hard to make sure my pattern doesn’t have any errors but apologise if you find any - let me know and I’ll try and correct them.

You will need to know how to read a chart and make alterations if necessary at the row ends.

To show how versatile my pattern is, I’m making a large adult sized blanket too,which you can see here -
