Of course, you shouldn’t use that word unless you’re three years old, so lets refrain from that, shall we?
Behold – a mass of acrylic!
I want to make a blanket.
Firstly I haven’t decided if it should be for me or my mum, but that will be for later.
Secondly, I can’t seem to decide on a pattern.
Wanting to make a blanket, but not wanting to “wear” it while I’m making it, I immediately realised that a modular construction would be ideal.
I had a quick scout around and I’ve narrowed it down to two patterns:
I like them both, but for different reasons.
Lizard Ridge uses a stitch pattern that is likely to keep me interested, but this also means it’s not totally mindless.
Psychedelic Squares is very 1970s which will be perfect if I give this to my mum, but will I get too bored with the simple blocks?
I suppose the most sensible thing to do would be to knit 1 “module” of each and see which I prefer. I don’t think I have enough yarn for both, so I can’t wimp out!
Has anyone out there knit either pattern, and if so, what’s your review? If you have a photo you can show me that would be great! Failing that, do you know of another modular pattern that might suit me and my yarn?
The response seems to have been positive. Having said that, no-one’s actually knit them yet (apart from my test knitter Janine) so I’ll have to wait and see!
