It is no secret that I love stripes. They are so addictive! Here’s my latest striped project:
I just cast this off the other day! I love it. It’s a HUGE garter stitch stripey blanket. I make a lot of blankets. I’ve been giving them away for wedding presents. I don’t have anyone in life getting married in the near future, but I figure that I will stock pile it. Weddings come in waves, you know.
I used all my scraps in the cool colour family (greens, blues, greys) to create this blanket. I cast on about 300 stitches on 5mm circulars and knit three rows on garter stitch in each colour. So the blanket is reversible!
Blanket = 5
About 1800 yards = 18 points
Stash = 1
TOTAL: 24 points!
I’m not going to lie. The minute I cast this one off, I started another scrappy blanket project. This time it’s granny squares! I can’t wait to finish that one.
My favourite knitting and crochet projects are blankets. What is your go-to project?
