What you need to know

Lynne Rowe’s chunky blanket is a riot of texture and colour, with seven shades and six different square designs combined in one bold and beautiful piece. Exclusive to Let’s Knit Together members, this fun knitalong runs over five weeks, and is perfect for intermediate knitters wanting to increase their skill set.

For the first three weeks we’ll bring you two different squares designs to knit in either four or five colours, on Week Four you'll learn how to join all 25 squares together and on Week Five guide you through the border and finishing touches. The chunky yarn makes short work of each square, so you’ll be surprised how quickly your blanket grows. Don’t forget to share your progress on the Facebook group!

How to: work stripes (carrying yarn up side)

05:36

Whether plain or patterned, stripes are a great way to add colour. With narrow bands, it's best to carry yarn up the side to use again, and this minimises yarn tails, too.
