Knitting in squares
2 Attachment(s)
I saw someone else knitting a blanket like this so I had to try. It's not squares, but knit in strips and then sewn together (with the border picked up and knit). So much fun and so many possibilities!!! The red-white-blue one is for the Project Linus TAPS program.

Both of those blankets turned out beautifully. You chose striking color combinations. I'm sure they will be loved by the recipients.
Well done!

Both are gorgeous! I love geometric shapes, and the colors are beautiful. Besides, who doesn't love red, white, and blue, right?

Very nice blankets! I like the technique. Made for a very smooth transition.

What type of yarn did you use? I think I saw something like this in a magazine...I need to go through my old issues....Love both of them!

Usamacka - for the multi one it was Michael's Loops and Threads Impeccable. It's not wonderful but once it's washed, it gets nice and soft. The red-white-blue one is Hobby Lobby's "I Love This Yarn". For an inexpensive yarn, it's WONDERFUL! Really soft, knits up nicely. Both are worsted weight, and I used size 9 or 10 needles. I did not have a pattern, just figured out how big I wanted it to be, plotted it out on paper, and started knitting. Since it is knitted in strips, it's easy to take along, not unwieldy like afghans often get. By slipping the first stitch, the seams are nice and smooth on the back.
