WIP: blanket made out of squares
1 Attachment(s)
Here's a WIP I work on from time to time. Right now I'm not working on it because I got bored with it. I have 16 squares finished and plan to make 40 more for a good-size blanket for my husband to use while he's watching sports on TV. I might change that number so he can use it this century.

Looking back now, I would have done it in strips, joining on colors like a striped scarf to cut down on seaming time.

(It's really hard to decide what to make for men!)

That's going to be beautiful! One thing about squares is they make great take-along knitting because they are small. I agree though they will be a pain to seam.

Men can be hard to knit for. I made my DH a couple hats and he wants a sweater.

Yes yes - that will be pretty...

Happy Seaming :eyebrow:

That is going to be beautiful! What a nice idea for getting rid of left over yarn too. What size are the squares?

Hi Anna!:waving: I really like your color and pattern choices!
This will be a work of art!

Now that you mention it...I wish I had knit the vertical squares into "columns" all together, then all's I woulda have had to seam are the "columns"!

I made this for my granddaughter, and my oh my, seaming all those squares! Phew. But what I did was: seamed all the vertical squares into columns...then seamed all the columns.

Your idea (alas, too late for me) is great!
