What you need to know

We hope you’re enjoying all the new stitches and techniques in Sarah Hazell’s gorgeous blanket. For the first square of Part 5, create the downy cascading effect on this Feathers design, then for the second, play with knit and purl stitches on the ‘wrong’ side of the main stocking stitch fabric to create a sweet flock of birds across the surface.

“The blanket is inspired by the idea of nurturing and I thought a birdhouse was a good way to illustrate this. It works for both boys and girls, and hints at the bond between mother and child”

Stocking stitch alternates a row of knit stitches with a row of purl stitches. This creates a knitted fabric that is smooth on the right side (with purl stitches forming the bumpy wrong side).
