Mitered Square Quadrant Blanket

This is a small preview of some of what I knit during the "summer of chaos" kitchen renovations. I needed something simple but fun to keep myself sane. Thank goodness for the mitered square!



I cast on about 250 stitches and started knitting. The blanket is made up of four huge squares, each about 30" x 30".



I used a yarn I discovered online last year called Jojoland Rhythm. It has very long repeats of color which I thought would make nice looking squares. This one is for my nephew Benson.



Now for the seaming!

That's a great idea for that yarn. I have a couple of bags of the Jojoland Melody yarn; it's really pretty stuff.

I can't wait to see the finished blanket.

Okay, how did you manage to post so many posts without me noticing? Other than tax deadline tomorrow, but still. It's not as if I haven't been surfing the net.

Anyway, cute blankie! And now I'm off to Ravelry to critique your Avatar.

When I first looked at the picture, I thought it was Trekking 100 sock yarn. It's going to be an awesome blanket!
