Sampler Blanket Pattern


Looking for something slightly more challenging?

Why not try my Sampler Blanket Pattern?  If you are going to become a knitter a part of that process is experimenting with the different knitting techniques as you gain experience.






As a beginner, each time you begin a new pattern it is a good idea to make a tension square to check your tension before you start knitting your garment.

So what do you do with all those tension squares when you have finished with them?

You have a couple of choices. You can unpick each of the squares and re-use the wool for your garment or you can collect the squares and make a blanket with them.

If you are going to unpick your squares, I suggest you do it as soon as possible as the yarn retains the memory of the knitted shape and when you reuse it you knitting will be a bit 'bumpy'.
